FallSkip, an app that predicts the likelihood of falls in older adults

FallSkip is a biomechanical application, which allows clinicians to evaluate older adults´ fall risk, attributed to their functional state. The system uses an Inertial Measurement Unit integrated in an Android device, which is responsible to analyse the biomechanical response when performing a modified protocol of the “Time up & Go” Test (TGU).

Stems from the IBV´s wide experience from over 40 years innovating in the fields of healthcare technologies & elderly people.

30% of people over 65 and 50% of those over 80 years of age fall at least once a year. In more than 70% of cases, these falls have clinical consequences such as hip fracture.
