Helping Reduce Falls in Older Adults
New Fall Program at Bronx Physical Therapy is making a world of difference.
Are you at risk?
Falls are a serious public health problem among older adults. In the United States, one of every three people 65 years and older fall each year. Of those who fall, 20 - 30% suffer moderate to severe injuries that reduce mobility and independence and increase the risk of premature death. Some of these falls can be prevented. It is imperative that you or your loved one gets tested before the fall.
It takes just a few minutes
The Biodex Balance System, consisting of a computerized platform and touch-screen control panel, measures a patient's ability to maintain balance. Results are compared to stored averages of other healthy adults in your age and gender category. From these calculations a "risk factor" can be deermined. This "risk factor" allows the clinician to assess your risk of falling and suggest a plan of action. The test, which can be done in as little as three minutes, is covered by most insurance plans.
