Surgical Instrument Tracking Devices Market Trends, Growth, & Share-2031


(MENAFN- Straits Research) Surgical sets typically include up to 200 instruments and are constructed using instrument checklists. A technician is responsible for precisely assembling sets, ensuring no missing or mismatched pieces. Thus, it is a challenging job that requires experts to have extensive knowledge and experience. Using a tracking system that gives technicians pictorial guidelines for identifying instruments or, even better, automatically recognizing and matching instruments using radio frequency identification devices (RFID)/barcode reading might simplify this work. Surgical equipment has its shelf life, and manufacturers typically define the number of cycles they can be used for, such as bipolar vessel-sealing instruments. A surgical tool tracking system displays the number of processes an instrument performs for its users.
Market Dynamics
Increasing Need for Inventory Management and Implementation of Unique Device Identification (UDI) Regulations by the FDA Drives the Global Market
As the FDA imposed the use of a unique device identification (UDI) system, demand for surgical instrument tracking devices increased substantially. The UDI mandates direct labeling at the individual instrument level for surgical instrument labelers (manufacturers, re-processors, specification developers, re-packagers, and re-labelers). Thus, most systems have a unique user identifier that is human and machine-readable. The product labeler must provide a specified level of device-specific information to the FDA's global unique device identification database (GUDID). The database is freely searchable, downloadable, and open to the public.
From the tray phase, hospitals and ambulatory care facilities have begun mounting the UDI on their devices. The operating theatre typically uses trackers to track surgical tools and equipment. Tracing medical equipment and inventory control throughout the work cycle, including treatment, post-surgery, storage, and sterilizing procedures, are vital challenges hospitals face, necessitating inventory management. Thus, the requirement for inventory management in hospitals and ambulatory clinics is increasing the global need for surgical instrument-tracking technologies.
Availability of Technological Advanced Products Creates Tremendous Opportunities
Creating surgical equipment tracking devices expedites surgical procedures and improves the accessibility and efficacy of inventory management in healthcare organizations. In addition, this system collects and monitors data in real-time regarding surgical instruments used at the healthcare facility. Industry participants have endeavored to develop new products and services to meet the needs of healthcare professionals. Due to the development of devices with quick detection times and high data recording rates, the global market for surgical instrument tracking devices may shift. In October 2018, Spa Track introduced new Auto-Scanner RFID surgical equipment. It screens a full instrument plate in around 12 seconds and is a spinning, hetero-directional processing device that can precisely track the registration numbers of every single item.
Web applications, interfaces for operating room scheduling systems, and radio frequency recognition technologies have contributed to the development of instrument-tracking devices. The segment's rise is attributable to technological advancements such as high durability, increased data store capacity, reusability, and the absence of a line-of-sight requirement. The evolution of surgical tool tracking device technologies and their user-friendliness are projected to drive the market for surgical instrument tracking devices.
