Besides, as per the Canadian Government (NovoScotio), the residents can get reimbursement while purchasing a medicinal vigilant system. The Personal Alert Assistance Program helps qualifying low-income seniors over the age of 65 and Nova Scotians aged 19 and over who have suffered an acquired brain injury. The program reimburses up to $480 per year for the cost of a personal vigilant assistance service. Thus, the rising geriatric population has led to an increase in the market demand for the medicinal vigilant systems. The government funding for purchasing medicinal vigilant systems is also boosting the medicinal vigilant system growth.

Furthermore, advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) are also driving market expansion and providing medicinal vigilant system manufacturers opportunities. In combination with predictive analytics, AI-driven technologies assist in automatic fall detection and visitor management and provide caregiver notice. AI-powered fall detectors for the elderly have been developed by companies such as Xsens, XanderKardian, Bay Alarm Medical, and Qventus.

For instance, in September 2021, Bay Alarm Medical, a medicinal vigilant system supplier, and Kami Visual announced a partnership to integrate former Medical's safety service with Kami's AI platform. With this, both will deliver powerful AI technology and visual verification to elders in the U.S., allowing seniors and caregivers to reduce false vigilant, improve emergency connection speeds, and eventually enable elders to age in place safely. The impact of such technologies is stunning, and the market for medicinal vigilant systems will soon be saturated with them.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The market has observed extensive developments in the last few decades supported by various factors such as the rising geriatric population and rising awareness among the people for medicinal vigilant system. The medical vigilant system, which can be utilized by older citizens, disabled individuals, or persons with brain diseases to receive quick help in an emergency, are in high demand due to the growing geriatric population and growing public knowledge of the medicinal system worldwide.

Furthermore, as the prevalence of chronic pain is relatively high among the geriatric population and is considered an independent risk factor for mortality, the growing population of elderly patients is a major driving factor that injects huge growth in the global medicinal vigilant systems market. The current situation, on the other hand, is radically different. Falling birth rates and a significant increase in life expectancy are driving this shift.

Insight by System Type

Based on the system type segment, the mobile PERS segment holds the most significant revenue in the global market in 2021 and is expected to retain its dominance in the foreseen period. Due to the obvious widespread usage of smartphones in recent years, mobile-based PERS, or mPERS, is expected to lead the medical alert systems market in the coming years.

Smart wearables that can be worn on the wrist or as a pendant are included with mPERS. mPERS devices give senior people mobility by preserving their independence by enabling them to use the device wherever they go. Built-in sensors, the usage of a mobile phone app, and faster response times are among the factors driving demand for mobile-based PERS. The industry's evolution will continue to bring new and exciting trends in the years ahead.
