Medical Device Industry Landscape In Asia-Pacific

GlobalData's APAC Medical Devices Industry Landscape – 2022 free study breaks down the APAC medical devices market by segment and region and includes insights on local and global competitors, pipeline product developments, clinical trials studies, and significant deals in the industry. The APAC medical device industry witnessed significant developments, launches, implementations, and adoption of new medical device technologies in the past decade, however the high cost of devices, regulatory hurdles, reimbursement pressure, and healthcare budget constraints have challenged market expansion across various territories and segments. APAC is the fastest growing regional market for medical device clinical trials, with China and Japan emerging as major clinical trial hotspots. The growth in medical device clinical trials in the APAC region is attributed to an increase in research partnerships between biopharma companies and clinical research organizations (CROs). This report also provides an in-depth analysis of the medical device market's opportunities and challenges, the influence of COVID-19 on the market, and government activities aimed to develop the APAC medical device market.

Designed for use in home and professional medical settings, Celluma, a light therapy device, utilises three distinct wavelengths of light energy modulated with proprietary electronic algorithms to re-energise cellular functions and create a natural healing response.

Funded by NASA and DARPA, the research using biophotonic therapy or light emitting diodes has proven to up-regulate cellular function and restore the body’s natural ability to heal itself in recent clinical trials.

"Designed for use in home and professional medical settings, Celluma, a light therapy device, utilises three distinct wavelengths of light energy modulated with proprietary electronic algorithms to re-energise cellular functions and create a natural healing response."

The device also includes a flexible design that molds to the body to allow the light to be absorbed more effectively leading to higher efficacy and more predictable outcomes, according to the company.

BioPhotas president and chief executive officer Patrick Johnson said with the development of Celluma, the company has accomplished its goal with a product that is proprietary in design and novel in clinical application for pain management and certain skin conditions.

"BioPhotas’ vision is to address the rapidly growing market opportunity in global healthcare and wellness with the proven science of biophotonics and LED technology featured in the Celluma to provide effective, affordable and predictable solutions for medical practitioners and consumers alike," Johnson said.

"The Celluma will give consumers and medical professionals affordable access to a powerful clinical technology that could otherwise cost 5 to 20 times more, particularly when compared to cold lasers used to treat the same conditions."
