Bedsores - Outpatient decubitus care in Germany
Decubitus diseases are chronic wounds and arise when permanent pressure on certain skin regions prevents their supply with oxygen-rich blood. Currently, there are about 460,000 decubitus cases a year. As a result of the aging population and the high age dependence of the disease, Qnidos Deutsche Health Intelligence anticipates a rise in pressure ulcers to 525,000 (CAGR: 2.2%) by 2020.
The decubitus aids market has grown by 1.7% per year in the past few years as a result of the increase in the number of patients, while the reimbursement rate has declined at the same time. Tenders (~ 10% of care), where reimbursement rates for decubitus mattresses can drop to € 100, represent a permanent threat to the quality of care of the affected persons and the sales plans of the market participants.
