Frequent Fallers' Experiences of an Adapted Walking Frame, Designed to Reduce the Walking Aid's Associated Falls Risk

For some patients with mobility issues, a walking frame (commonly known as a zimmer frame - trademark of Zimmer Holdings), is provided to keep them on their feet and help them remain more independent in their home and when out and about. When patients are given the walking frame, they are given information on how to use it safely to protect them from hurting themselves. For a small group of patients, using the walking frame is difficult, and they will have a fall because they a...

The Multitasking Rehabilitation She Enhanced Walking Speed Compared to the Simple Post Stroke Rehabilitation Task (AVC)?

Stroke is the leading cause of severe disability in adults. The first cause of alterations in the quality of life and autonomy in these patients are disorders of walking and the balance. They are the leading cause of falls responsible for important medical, surgical and economic complications as well as a reactionary social isolation. The techniques of rehabilitation of walking to the subacute phase of a stroke are usually based on automatic walking.Off walking is a complex ac...

Beam Walking Across the Lifespan for Falls Prediction

Background: Dynamic balance keeps the vertical projection of the center of mass within the base of support while the center of mass moves. The age-related decrease in dynamic balance is a risk factor for falls. Dynamic balance tests are used to predict the risks for falls and eventual falls but the psychometric properties of most tests assessing dynamic balance are unsatisfactory and comprise no actual loss of balance while walking. Objectives: Using beam walking distance as a ...

Kenosha County Falls Prevention Study

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 reducing rate of falls. The purpose of this study was to test, in a randomized, controlled trial, the efficacy of this intermediate-intensity, individual, multifactorial model to reduce falls. It was hypothesized that more contacts would lead to greater adherence and efficacy in reducing falls.

A Service Intervention to Reduce Falls in Hospital

The head of nursing at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) plans to roll out an intervention across groups of hospital wards over the next four months. The intervention is designed to reduce falls as part of quality improvement for the hospital. However, the head of nursing has asked the University of Warwick to help with the scientific evaluation of the intervention - to find out whether and to what extent falls on the wards are reduced by the intervention. Th...

Reactive Stepping Training in Individuals With Spinal Cord Injury

Falling is common among individuals with incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI), with most falls occurring while walking. Falls result in injuries (e.g., broken bones), hospital readmission, and reduced participation in work and recreation. In able-bodied people, falls can be prevented by taking one or more rapid, reactive steps. People with iSCI, however, have difficulty taking the reactive steps needed to prevent a fall. Research in the elderly and people with stroke has shown ...

Automatic Detection of Falls and Near Falls

The aim of this study is to develop an algorithm to automatically detect falls and near falls, in the elderly and in Parkinson's Disease patients. Subjects will arrive at the investigators' gait laboratory for assessment. A sub-group of the subjects, will receive a monitoring device, to be worn at home for three days.

Octabaix Intervention Study

Objective: To determine the effectiveness of an individual multifactorial intervention on falls and undernutrition risk in very older people in the community.

A Novel Strategy to Decrease Fall Incidence Post-Stroke

Approximately 15,000 Veterans are hospitalized for stroke each year with new cases costing an estimated $111 million for acute inpatient, $75 million for post-acute inpatient, and $88 million for follow-up care over 6 months post-stroke. Contributing to these costs is the incidence of falls. Falls are a costly complication for Veterans with stroke as they lead to an increased incidence of fractures, depression, and mortality. New strategies are needed to help Veterans post-stro...

Restoring Skill in Walking

The purpose of the study is to examine the effect of an intervention to improve walking based on motor learning (skill-based) compared to the usual intervention (strength, flexibility and balance-based) on clinical, psychological and laboratory measures of walking and balance of older adults with mobility disability (walking problems).

Prevention of Falls and Injurious Falls Among Elderly People

The aim of this study is to describe and analyse the effects of multifactorial trial on the incidence of falls and injurious falls and on different risk factors of falling among the home-dwelling aged.

Nursing Homes Study of Fall Risk Assessment Oriented to Intervention

The aim of the study is to establish the impact of a falls screening questionnaire in the adoption of preventive interventions and eventually in the reduction of falls and its consequences in elder people living in nursing homes.

Wii-fit for Activity, Balance and Gait in Assisted Living

Purpose of the study: Falls in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) are common and lead to fractures, acute hospitalizations and increased rate of institutionalization. Poor balance and gait abnormalities, commonly associated with AD, are risk factors for falls. Improving balance and gait abnormalities is critical to prevent falls in AD. Exercise interventions improve gait and balance in elderly. Walking is the most commonly recommended home-based exercise program for elderly by primary c...

Increasing the Accessibility of a Falls Prevention Intervention for Community Dwelling Older Adults With Low Vision

This study serves to test a previously evaluated falls prevention intervention recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, entitled the Study of Accidental Falls in the Elderly (SAFE) Health Behavior and Exercise Intervention, to evaluate if the intervention is accessible to older adults with low vision receiving services from the Southeastern Blind Rehabilitation Center (SBRC). This study also serves to pilot a version of the SAFE intervention that has been ...

RCT to Reduce Further Falls and Injuries for Older Fallers Presenting to an Emergency Department

This project is called “Falls Aren’t Us” and aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of a customised falls prevention program for people aged 60 and over who were presented to the hospital Emergency Department following a fall and being discharged home. Recruitment for this randomized controlled trial has commenced in late December 2002 from several major public hospitals in the western, southern, and northern parts of Melbourne Metropolitan Region. Consented participants...

The Sensorimotor Locus of Balance Control in Elderly Gait

The aging population is at an exceptionally high risk of debilitating falls, contributing significantly to reduced independence and quality of life. It remains extremely challenging to screen for falls risk, and programs designed to mitigate falls risk have only modestly influenced the sizeable portion of the aging population experiencing one or more falls annually. Balance control in standing and walking depends on integrating reliable sensory feedback and on planning and exec...

Effects of a Falls Prevention Program Following Hospital Discharge

A randomized, control trial will be conducted to evaluate the effects of a post-discharge falls prevention program in patients with neurological diseases and disorders. The objective of this study is to evaluate if implementing a falls prevention program is effective in reducing subsequent falls and re-hospitalizations, and improving gait, strength and balance in older adults after hospital discharge. Patients from Baptist Health Neuroscience Center will be randomized on the da...

Donepezil and the Risk of Falls in Seniors With Cognitive Impairment

Compared with cognitively normal older adults, those with mild cognitive problems (MCI) have a two-fold higher rate of falls, sustain more fractures, and have a higher rate of mortality due to falls. Why older adults with cognitive problems fall more frequently is not completely understood. What is known, however, is that attention is a necessary cognitive resource for normal walking and impairments in attention are associated with increased risk of falls in older adults. ...

Falls - Tailoring Interventions for Patient Safety
