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.
