What the experts say
“Identifying and educating seniors who may be at risk for falls is one of our agency’s primary goals. The community’s cooperative use of the Balance Engineering System to screen at risk seniors have helped us intervene and decrease falls in our community. This system has enabled us to work with our local hospital, home health care agencies and long term care facilities. In many cases we were able to identify seniors who needed additional physical therapy and/or adaptive equipment that helped them stay safe in their own homes. This system has proven ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

“The Equilibrate system is a great tool for assessing fall risk in the geriatric population. It is easy to use. One-stop note writing assists with efficiency in any high paced rehabilitation setting. The treatment options are engaging to any population and functional as it related to the patients goals. I would love to see an Equilibrate in every Assisted Living Facility as the main fall risk assessment tool.”
