Minimising the Consequences of Falls
Technology can help to keep people safe and independent. As well as helping to manage the risk of falls, it can also alert about events such as fires or floods, aid communication and deliver greater privacy or dignity, and can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives. With public sector funding under increasing pressure, it is more important than ever that we realise the potential of enabling technologies to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people at risk of falling, and help our health, housing and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
