America's obesity epidemic continues to warrant the manufacturing of thicker, stronger, heavy-duty medical equipment. This means there is more opportunity than ever for HME providers who want to pursue this specialty market. More than one-third of U.S. adults are classified as clinically obese (more than 72 million people) and obesity in adults has reportedly increased by more than 60% in the past 20 years. In 2008, researchers found that 32 states had an obesity prevalence equal to or greater than 25% while six states had a prevalence equal to or greater than 30%. Only one state, Colorado, had a prevalence of obesity less than 20% of its total population.
