Falls Prevention & Protection Equipment
With falls contributing significantly to fracture rates, increased functional decline and even disability and death, Falls Prevention is an area we are passionate about. We offer a range of products to minimise the risk of falls including products for people in bed, in chairs and wheelchairs. Research suggests that up to half of all older people living in residential aged care services fall every year. Age is a risk factor in falls, with residents over 80 at the highest risk. Other risk factors include dementia, stroke history, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.
