This webinar features David Wilcox – Clinical Educator, Biodex & Kelly Sullivan – Senior Product Consultant, Direct Supply.

Falls have become a significant problem for seniors in the United States. With one-third of reported falls among those ages 65 and over – and staggering costs that coincide – preventive measures must be taken to identify and treat individuals who are at risk of falls before they occur. Fall risk screening and conditioning programs are designed to do just that. Over the past few years, research has proven how falls and subsequent cost-related injuries decrease with the implementation of these programs.

In this webinar, you will receive an overview of common intrinsic and extrinsic causes of falls among seniors and individuals with existing disabilities, as well as the consequences and current cost-related statistics. Through various methods and evaluations, attendees will learn how they can play an integral role in providing evidenced-based fall risk assessments in their own communities or workplaces. We will then review common clinical balance, gait and strength tests that can be administered to determine fall risk and discuss what a conditioning program consisting of these tests will look like. Lastly, we will explore how basic marketing techniques can be used to promote a fall risk assessment program to seniors and staff in your community.
