Falls Screen
The first step in preventing falls

Falls Screen is the first step in preventing falls and we focus on assessing, prescribing and action. Our Falls Screen using wireless sensor technology enables our Chartered Physiotherapists to deliver an accurate falls risk assessment to be undertaken in the home or community.

The Falls Screen will assess the risk of a fall occurring. Improved identification of mobility impairment and those at risk of falls can result in targeting interventions, preventive measures and care services towards those at highest risk. At Falls Action, we believe that this approach will improve healthcare utilisation, reduce costs and improve quality of life in older adults. We will provide all our patients with a take home sheet with simple tips and advice on how to avoid having a fall and reducing your risk of having one.
