The increase in the elderly population has increased the market for walking assist devices. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 2020 report, the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis ranges from 0.3% to 1% and is more prevalent in developed countries and among women. Consequently, as the global geriatric population grows, so does the global demand for walking assist devices. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 15% of the global population is impaired in some way. As a result of their use in rehabilitation programmes to gradually restore body balance and promote muscle function in sedentary, disabled individuals, the rising number of surgical procedures generates a high demand for assisted walking devices. Consequently, the increasing prevalence of debilitating neurological diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis has contributed to the growth of the assisted walking device market over the forecast period.


Access to equipment demonstrations at centres that provide patients with pertinent advice regarding the selection of equipment suited to a specific disability is made possible by initiatives sponsored by government and private organizations. The governments of the countries, the United States and the United Kingdom, provide special grants to physically-challenged patients in order to purchase this equipment. Independent organizations, such as Charity search, the Disabled Information and Advice Lines (DIAL) network, Rica, and Shop mobility, are actively engaged in providing a variety of services for physically disabled people seeking solutions. The Priority Assistive Products List has been published by the World Health Organization (WHO) to promote equitable access to assistive mobility devices for those in need, as well as to outline reimbursement policies and provide guidance regarding the purchase of these devices.
