According to Frost & Sullivan, Mounting Clinical Evidence Underlines Benefits of Bone Growth and Spinal Fusion Stimulators

LONDON, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The demand for a reliable, non-invasive, efficient and cost-effective technology that improves patients' lifestyles is boosting interest in bone growth and spinal fusion stimulators in Europe. The market is however still small, as clinicians have felt that the technology needs to be better proved. This situation is changing though, as companies introduce innovative products with clinical studies and research papers to substantiate the efficacy of their offerings.


New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, European Bone Growth and Spinal Fusion Stimulators Markets, finds that the markets earned revenues of $73.5 million in 2007 and estimates this to reach $118.0 million by 2014.

"An increasing number of scientific research studies support these technologies," notes a Frost & Sullivan analyst. "Each year, manufacturers and independent researchers are publishing more papers, describing in greater detail how stimulation has beneficial effects and which types of patients can best benefit from this treatment."

There is still a great deal of debate among orthopaedicians about what dosage of stimulation is optimal for a given patient with a given condition. However, most of them now agree that the technology is able to produce good results in most selected patients.

Reimbursement still remains an issue for the market, but some hospitals are now including bone growth stimulation in their budgets. Although used primarily for treating worst-case failures, they are gradually gaining acceptance as an alternative to non-union surgery.

"This technology has met with much resistance in Europe, but as clinical experience is gained, bone growth stimulation will be regarded as a good option at the surgeon's disposal in the future," states the analyst. "Patients tend to get coverage from private or public insurance for other treatments, yet for bone and spinal fusion stimulators no coverage is offered, giving patients the impression that one treatment is better or more accepted than the other."
