Falls Management

Falls are the largest cause of emergency hospital admissions for the elderly

Between 70,000 and 75,000 people fracture their hip as a result of falls in the UK each year, and the annual cost of medical and social care for these patients is estimated to be over £2 billion. Hip fractures have a mortality of 10% at one month and 30% at three months, and are a significant factor in precipitating admission to residential care.

Fall prevention

Technology can help to keep people safe and independent. Devices such as wearable fall detectors and bed/chair occupancy sensors can ensure help is on hand quickly after a fall, which can mitigate its effects. Medication dispensers and prompts can reduce falls due to medication mismanagement, and lifestyle monitoring can identify behaviours which may indicate the likelihood of a fall, enabling intervention.
