Wellesley, Mass. (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
The Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act (PPACA) of 2010, will have a significant impact on the market for various medical and assistive technologies. Among its other provisions, the new law imposes a tax on medical devices such as prosthetic limbs, pacemakers, and wheelchairs which will increase the cost of these devices and may decrease their use. Additionally, PPACA contains various other provisions that could have a significant impact on the market for assistive technologies, particularly through changes in Medicare. However, demand for medical and healthcare services, including therapeutic and diagnostic screenings, is expected to rise dramatically in the emerging markets as more individuals acquire coverage and the global economy continues to improve.
