Neuromodulation devices have emerged as one of the fastest growing segments of the medical device market due to high demand for minimally invasive and non–invasive treatment. With advancements in technology, neuromodulation is expected to become a promising therapeutic area and high growth industry in the next decade, as it offers symptomatic relief mainly from chronic pain, incontinence, heart failure, headache, depression, epilepsy, etc. The neuromodulation devices market includes deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, sacral nerve stimulation and others external stimulation devices such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).

The neuromodulation technique acts directly upon nerves or the target area where the activity of nerves is altered due to biological responses produced by electrical stimulation or drug infusion. These devices include small electrodes that are attached to the brain, the spinal cord, or peripheral nerves. These precisely placed leads are connected by means of an extension cable to a pulse generator to generate electrical stimulation. Neuromodulation can have applications in any area of the body and can treat several diseases like chronic pain, epilepsy, psychiatric disorder, movement disorder, cardiovascular disorder, genitourinary and colorectal disorder, stroke and brain injury, and gastric disorder.

The main drivers for the neuromodulation market are the rising population of aged people and age-related diseases like Alzheimer's, epilepsy, spinal cord injury, and Parkinson's disease. According to the International Neuromodulation Society, about 40 million to 50 million patients worldwide suffer from epilepsy, and 1.5 million people currently (2012) suffer from Parkinson disease in the U.S. The large pool of patients that suffer from depression, stroke, anxiety disorders, lower back pain, urinary incontinence, and tremor offers the neuromodulation industry opportunities to grow in the next five years. The market for treatment of tinnitus, in particular, represents an emerging application of neuromodulation. According to the American Tinnitus Association, about 50 million people currently (2012) suffer from this disease in the U.S.

This report estimates the market for six major segments, namely, spinal cord stimulation, deep brain stimulation, sacral nerve stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, gastric electrical stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and others. The report also estimates the market for different neuromodulation techniques as well as geographic analysis of each segment in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. As technologies develop and the number of trained physician increases, the likelihood of neuromodulation being seen as life-changing treatment will increase dramatically. It is estimated that the market for neuromodulation will be shared largely by deep brain stimulation and spinal cord stimulation.

The key players in the neuromodulation devices market are Medtronic, Inc. (U.S.), Cyberonics, Inc. (U.S.), Boston Scientific Corporation (U.S.), St. Jude Medical (U.S.), Enteromedics, Inc (U.S.), Neuropace, Inc (U.S.), Zynex, Inc (U.S.) and Neuronetics, Inc (U.S.). The emerging players in this market are Functional Neuromodulation, Ltd (U.S.), Microtransponder (U.S.), and Neurosigma, Inc (U.S.).

Scope of the Report

The research report categorizes the global neuromodulation devices market by procedure, technology, and application. These markets are broken down into segments and sub-segments, providing exhaustive value-volume analysis for 2010, 2011, and 2012 as well as forecast up to 2017. Each market is also analyzed by geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World to provide in-depth information on the global scenario.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected.

Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
