PALM BEACH, Fla., July 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ongoing research and development activities in the field of rare neurological disease treatments are proliferating and rapid developments in healthcare and dramatic socioeconomic changes resulting in modified lifestyles is also giving opportunities to manufacturers to expand their footprint within the rare neurological disease treatment market. A recent report from Allied Market Research projected that the global Neurology Devices Market was valued at $9,242 million in 2018, and is expected to reach $17.410 Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 8.1% from 2019 to 2026. It stated: "Neurology is a branch of science that deals with the disorders of the nervous system, which majorly comprise the brain, blood vessels, muscles and nerves. The neurovascular devices such as cerebrospinal fluid management devices, interventional devices, and others used for the treatment of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's, tumors, and Parkinson's disease. Moreover, various other devices or instruments are available in the market, which are used for the treatment of neurological devices such as catheters, stents, ultrasonic aspirators, and stereotactic systems." Active biotech companies with recent developments include: NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation (OTCQB: NMTC), Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZBH), Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT), Baxter International Inc. (NYSE: BAX), Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CODX).
The report continued: "The major factors driving the global neurology devices market growth include rise in geriatric population across the globe, high demand for minimally invasive surgeries, rise in disposable income, improvement in healthcare infrastructure, and development of advanced devices. In addition, significant increase in the prevalence of neurological disorders across the globe propels the market growth. For instance, as per the estimates of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 795,000 people in the U.S. suffer from stroke every year. In addition, rise in geriatric population poses risk for increase in incidence of neurovascular disorders (such as stroke). For instance, according to the Internet Stroke Center, o an average, nearly 75% of people aged over 65 years are reported to suffer from stroke every year. Moreover, the risk of having a stroke doubles after the age of 55, which propels the adoption of neurology devices, thereby supplementing the market growth. However, implementation of stringent government regulations toward the approval of neurology devices and dearth of skilled neurosurgeons are the key factors anticipated to hamper the market growth. On the contrary, the introduction of new products and technological advancements in the neurology devices to make disease diagnosis easier have aided in the efficient treatment of neurovascular disorders, which is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market expansion during the forecast period."

Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZBH), a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare, recently announced new features of mymobility with Apple Watch, creating a first-of-its-kind remote care management system. These new features expand upon the existing work between Apple and Zimmer Biomet, who together launched the mymobility care management system in October 2018 to transform the pre- and post-operative joint replacement experience.
With the addition of new mobility metrics to measure gait quality, mymobility will provide healthcare professionals with even more virtual touchpoints and real-time patient information to enhance their decision-making process, while patients will continue to receive a connected and customizable experience throughout their episode of care. Apple is demonstrating these features to developers during this year's virtual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), June 22 to 26, 2020.
Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT) recently announced it received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the Percept™ PC Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) system. BrainSense™ technology makes Percept the first and only DBS neurostimulation system with the ability to chronically capture and record brain signals while delivering therapy to patients with neurologic disorders associated with Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, epilepsy or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Physicians can now track patient brain signals and correlate these with patient-recorded actions or experiences, such as symptoms, side-effects, or medication intake. This enables more personalized, data-driven neurostimulation treatment.
Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., will be the first in the United States to implant the newly approved device. "Our goal is for patients to regain independence, and we know that DBS can significantly improve motor function in people with Parkinson's disease compared to standard medication alone," said Bryan Klassen, M.D., neurologist, Mayo Clinic. "We can now more precisely tailor therapy to the individual needs of each patient based on data from neuronal activity."
Baxter International Inc. (NYSE: BAX) recently announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of Altapore Shape Bioactive Bone Graft, the latest addition to the company's next-generation bone graft substitute product line.
