A type of medical sensor called an accelerometer are sensors that track the velocities of moving objects along established axes. Because acceleration is related to external force and can therefore reflect the frequency and intensity of human movement, utilizing accelerometry to measure physical activity is highly preferred. By aggregating accelerometry information with respect to time, displacement and velocity information can be obtained.

When accelerometer sensors rotate with objects, some of them can react to gravity to give tilt sensing in relation to reference planes. Classifying bodily postures can be done using the inclination data that is produced (orientations). With these features, accelerometry is able to provide accurate data for determining physical activity and a variety of human activities.

In order to detect and evaluate physical activity in either laboratory/clinical settings or free-living scenarios, accelerometers have gained widespread acceptance as practical and useful sensors for wearable and non-wearable technology alike. Accelerometers were superior to previous methods for precisely tracking human movement. In addition, the price of accelerometers in smaller form factors has decreased because of micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) technology. While this is going on, sensor performance has improved, and battery consumption has significantly decreased.

Historically, sensors for monitoring physical activity levels worn and based on accelerometers have been expensive and made expressly for research. Nonetheless, the general public now has access to accelerometry-based assessments of physical activity owing to the relatively recent development of inexpensive, simple-to-use, and consumer-oriented sensors, like Fitbits.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The need for medical sensors increased during the pandemic. The need for sensors was further fueled by the requirement for ongoing monitoring of patients with disorders and the miniaturization of monitoring tools. The manufacturers of accelerometer medical sensors were further driven to innovate by the rising demand. As a result, the pandemic had a favorable effect on the accelerometer medical sensors market.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing miniaturization and connectivity trends in medical sensors

More than one-third of people on the planet access the internet at greater bandwidths. As a result, more smart devices can now connect to the internet. In the wearable environment, smartphones are one of the most widely used portable devices, and they are largely utilized to gather and track fitness and health data.

Moreover, wearable technology is a crucial component of IoT and M2M platforms, causing an increase in linked devices globally. As a result, the market for accelerometer medical sensors is projected to grow along with the increasing use of wearable technology and IoT.

Increasing recognition of benefits of accelerometer medical sensors

Doctors, nurses, as well as other clinical personnel can keep an eye on patients regardless of whether they're at the healthcare facility or home owing to wearable medical gadgets. With the ability to remotely measure patient physiologic data in real-time, healthcare facilities can free up rooms, and clinicians can monitor patients' vitals from any place, and efficiency increases.

Therefore, the many benefits of medical sensors have aided in their increased usage in the healthcare sector, thereby propelling the growth of the accelerometer medical sensors market.

Market Restraining Factors

Medical gadgets connected to the internet are vulnerable to data leaks

One of the major challenges for wearables is security, as connected medical device cyberattacks are on the rise. By adhering to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as well as other security regulations, medical equipment can be made foolproof.

However, to successfully execute these stringent regulations, businesses that produce wearable medical sensors technology for the healthcare industry must hire internal IoT engineers or a trustworthy outside consultant. Therefore, the increasing risks of data leaks from wearable medical sensors obstruct the expansion of the accelerometer medical sensors market.
