Fall Prevention

According to the CDC, more than one third of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States and 20% to 30% of people who fall suffer moderate to severe injuries.

One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.

Leading cause of fatal injury, most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions.

Currently risk of falling assessment is cumbersome and not easy to access. It is measured by pen and paper clinical scales:

  • Berg Balance Scale
  • Tinetti Fall Efficacy Scale
  • Function in sitting test

This assessment requires a trained clinician and a support team to manage the patient as the process places the participant at risk of falling.
