The market for urodynamic equipment includes capital equipment and disposables. As these procedures can be performed in both hospitals and outpatient offices, the capital equipment market is segmented into those sold at hospitals versus those sold at outpatient offices. The disposables market is segmented into air-charged, water-filled and fiber-optic catheters. When urodynamics were first tested, the tests were long in duration and the equipment was not easy to use. Therefore, many medical offices did not see the value in performing urodynamic tests.
In the 1980s, computerized compact urodynamic equipment was pioneered, which could be easily managed by healthcare staff. In 2009, urodynamic evaluations were becoming routine procedures in healthcare offices and some specialty clinics.
It is also expected that the market will increase its presence in large healthcare centers. However, this trend has been expected for the past several years but has not been noted. The urodynamic equipment market is expected to become an increasingly mobile market where equipment will be transported to the centers where it is needed and a specialist will interpret results to form the diagnosis. This will transform the business model of urodynamic equipment to further rely on disposables for the bulk of the revenues.
Urodynamic equipment is used to assess and diagnose urinary voiding dysfunction, typically incontinence and pelvic floor troubles, and is considered the leading procedure for quantitative evaluation. Urodynamic tests are performed using physical measurements, such as urine pressure and flow rate, as well as clinical assessment. The majority are non-invasive tests that are performed in an outpatient setting.
