About this app

Kinesis Health Technologies Ltd have developed Kinesis Balance™, a tool to allow you to assess your balance and risk of having a fall (www.kinesishealthtech.com/balance).

Kinesis Balance™ uses inertial sensors embedded in a smartphone or a small sensor worn on the lower back, to measure an older adult's balance functional strength when completing a range of balance and functional assessments. The tool also includes an evidence-based analysis of fall risk and wellbeing.

Our validated, patent-protected algorithms are based on a large dataset of community dwelling older adults. Our products are supported by top tier peer-reviewed scientific publications (www.kinesishealthtech.com/research).

Kinesis Balance™ allows an older person to assess and track their physical function and falls risk in the home or community environment, providing guidance and support to maintain independence and a balance in life.

All data stored on the app are anonymised and may only be used for research purposes and to help improve the app. We do not store Personalised Identifiable Information (PII) and do not use marketing or tracking cookies.

This is a great app, my partner is elderly and has had an issue with falling over on a regular occurrence, she has got medical advice on how to work on improving the problem e.g different exercises to do, but this will be great to monitor her progress. Highly recommend.

Extremely easy to use app. Was unsure of what to expect when advised to install and was pleasantly surprised to see very concise instructions and it does exactly what it promises.

Really good and easy app to use, really well built and has been a godsend, particularly in these troubling times. Would definitely recommend this app to a friend if they were looking for anything like this
