Key Market Dynamics:

  • Market Driver
  • Market Challenges

The increased demand for home fitness equipment and technological advancements in fitness equipment are some of the key market drivers. Consumers are learning to use advanced home fitness equipment via online videos and apps without the need to engage trainers, thus saving on costs. Furthermore, hectic work schedules and an increase in health issues have compelled people to undertake some form of exercise daily to remain healthy and prevent health-related issues, thus increasing the demand for fitness equipment.

However, factors such as high cost of fitness equipment and the availability of counterfeit products will challenge market growth. Consumers find joining health clubs more economical than buying home fitness equipment. Also, some people living in developing countries are more skeptical about spending on health clubs and gym memberships. Furthermore, the presence of several local brands offering counterfeit products in the global fitness equipment market is leading to market fragmentation, thus resulting in issues such as the lack of price standardization, an uneven competitive scenario, and market share erosion.

  • Net revenue grew 46% to $9.5 million:

  • Net revenue was 10% higher than third quarter of 2019, which was the last pre-pandemic comparable period

  • Laser system sales increased 64%

  • Consumables and other revenue increased 21%

  • U.S. and international revenue increased 25% and 101%, respectively, as more dental practices were operating during the 2021 third quarter compared to the year-ago third quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Gross margin was 51%, up 1,600 basis points, due to the higher year-over-year revenue, favorable revenue mix and higher average selling prices for products sold during the quarter

  • Maintained strong balance sheet, as cash and cash equivalents totaled $33.4 million at quarter end

“Our strong third quarter performance continues to reflect the rising demand for our industry-leading dental lasers,” commented John Beaver, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our efforts to both educate and train dental specialists is leading to increased adoption across these large and largely untapped markets. In today’s environment, the fact that BIOLASE lasers provide increased safety to dentists and their patients is generating a high level of acceptance by dental practitioners – and we expect this to be a driving force for the foreseeable future. Our industry-leading dental lasers aim to provide a better standard of care for dental procedures and seek to ensure a safer experience while reducing the risk of future procedure and business disruptions by reducing aerosolization to mitigate the spread of infectious pathogens, such as COVID-19. Looking ahead, we expect significant year-over-year improvement across our key performance metrics, including revenue and gross margin in the fourth quarter as we continue to gain momentum with new customers and dental specialists.”

Investigation reveals nearly 3 million reports of problems with dental implants | CBS 5 Investigates

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — The confines of her tiny apartment are both her refuge and her prison. Wisps of essential oils mist up from a glass diffuser. Crystals hanging in the single living room window reflect small rainbows, creating a hippy chic and soothing vibe. The efforts to create a comfortable environment are clear, but the harsh reality is, Ginger Peters feels she’s spent the last 11 years of her life dying a slow death.

Describing the 58-year-old as frail is an understatement. The slightest physical exertion, even showering, leaves her exhausted. Her current physical condition is a stark change from the once athletic woman who surfed and skied. At her lowest weight, the 5’9″ blond dropped to just 85 pounds, her flesh stretched across her protruding bones.

Peters says her life fell apart after a dentist convinced her to pull 22 teeth and replace them with dental implants. She says he told her it would help her recover from Valley fever. (Note: Health care professionals contacted during this investigation said they had not heard of pulling teeth to treat Valley fever.)

Dental implants consist of three parts. The base, considered the “implant,” is a screw-like piece that is drilled into the jawbone. The implant acts as “the root” of the artificial tooth. An abutment is a middle piece that attaches the implant base to the artificial tooth or teeth.

Peters says her new sets of teeth, both upper and lower, never fit correctly. Instead of locking into place, Peters’ artificial teeth fall out and move around in her mouth, leaving her unable to chew food.

A stack of medical records provided by Peters shows at least one of her doctors has linked a wide range of health and digestive problems to her implants and her inability to eat. However, no one has pinpointed why Peters has ongoing pain, infections, rashes on her face and neck and sores and inflammation in her mouth. Peters’ case is extreme but problems with dental implants are not uncommon.

Nearly 3 million reports of problems

A surge of reports of problems with dental implants may have remained almost impossible to find if it wasn’t for a former FDA data analyst. After leaving the FDA, Madris Kinard started Device Events. Her company specializes in searching through data in the FDA’s MAUDE database, which contains reports of the problems with medical devices reported to the FDA. MAUDE stands for Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience.

MAUDE can be cumbersome and difficult to search, producing only 500 reports at a time. Kinard’s software sorts through millions of reports in seconds, allowing her to compile data that may take other researchers weeks to gather. Searching MAUDE, Kinard discovered dental implants have nearly 3 million reports of problems, more than any other medical device.
