About Integrated Care and Fall Prevention in Active and Healthy Aging
In today’s world, healthy aging and a fulfilling lifestyle are important to older members of society, with many opting to remain as independent and mobile as possible for as long as possible. However, elderly individuals tend to have a variety of functional limitations that can increase the likelihood of debilitating falls and injuries. Assessments of functionality are very often only performed following an accident, which implies a hindsight bias because results do not necessarily reflect pre-accidental performance capacities. Furthermore, these belated measures do little to reduce the likelihood of new falls. As such, it is imperative that personalized preventative approaches are taken to prevent falls.
"Assessments of functionality are very often performed following an accident. This implies a hindsight bias because results do not necessarily reflects pre-accidental performance capacities. Furthermore, these end-of-chain measures do little to reduce the likelihood of new falls and events. It seems rather unlikely that the pattern of latent failures will be identical for the next event as intrinsic and extrinsic parameters are changing in a constant flow. "

-Prof. Patrik Eklund
