Hand-Assisted Devices Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Hand-assisted devices are used mainly during hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS). HALS is a type of surgery that allows the surgeon to use his or her non-dominant hand through a hand port device in conjunction with standard laparoscopic instruments held in the dominant hand. With both the hand and laparoscopic instruments working in tandem, the surgeon has better control of the operation and has better depth perception and tactile sensation, which aids in tissue extraction and reduces operative time. This technique effectively reduces the level of difficulty associated with performing laparoscopic procedures as surgeons do not have to rely solely on the video image in order to manipulate their instruments. HALS is predominantly used during colectomies, nephrectomies, splenectomies and the resection of the large intestine, kidney and liver. This technique is usually employed on obese patients undergoing the aforementioned procedures, as it makes operating on larger patients significantly easier.

Regardless of the overall U.S. obesity rates starting to plateau, approximately 30% of the U.S. adult population has a BMI exceeding 30 and is considered obese. In the coming years, growth in the handassisted device market will become less pronounced. Over the forecast period, the market for handassisted devices in the U.S. will increase.
HALS is technically much easier than total laparoscopy, but many surgeons are drawn to smaller incisions. This sometimes steers surgeon preference away from HALS as it requires a longer incision than single port surgery and standard laparoscopy. As a point of pride, some surgeons abstain from these procedures because they believe that laparoscopic surgeons should only use laparoscopic instruments.
