With an aging population, an associated increase in the number of falls and fall injuries, there is a need to examine how health care services, such as home care, can best prevent falls am...
Intensive falls prevention programs have been shown to be effective in reducing falls; however, a number of practical programs, based in community setting have not been successful at reduc...
The purpose of this study is to test an intervention to introduce and implement proximity alarms on the risk of falls in hospitalized patients.
The study analyses if cognition and gait speed can predict falls in a community-dwelling people and ambulant long term care residents
In this study the investigators will incorporate a wide range of clinical variables associated with aging to determine whether they are associated with mutation status independent of chron...
Falls remain a major issue in inpatient rehabilitation. Decreased scores on the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), given to every patient, have been shown to predict falls risk.
Gait kinematic parameters have been reported as an important clinical tool to assess the risk of falls in older adults. However, the ability of these parameters to predict falls in the older populatio...
Prior research in falls risk prediction often relies on qualitative and/or clinical methods. There are two challenges with these methods. First, qualitative methods typically use falls history to dete...
To assess whether variables from a postural control test relate to and predict falls efficacy in prosthesis users.
Falls in individuals aged ≥ 60 years may result in injury, hospitalisation or death. The role of anti-hypertensive medications in falls among older adults is unclear.
An individual intelligence test designed primarily for school children to predict school performance and the ability to adjust to everyday demands.
Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.
Falls due to slipping or tripping which result in injury.
The science and application of a double-beam transmission interference microscope in which the illuminating light beam is split into two paths. One beam passes through the specimen while the other beam reflects off a reference mirror before joining and interfering with the other. The observed optical path difference between the two beams can be measured and used to discriminate minute differences in thickness and refraction of non-stained transparent specimens, such as living cells in culture.
The process of aging due to changes in the structure and elasticity of the skin over time. It may be a part of physiological aging or it may be due to the effects of ultraviolet radiation, usually through exposure to sunlight.
