Falls are a concern for a number of people within the population, with around 30% of adults over 65yrs experiencing at least one fall per year, most commonly in and around the home. As the population ages, this is due to increase and places importance for both loved ones, carers and healthcare providers on preventing the occurrence and opportunity of falls. Especially for older Australians, falls can result in serious and in some cases life-threatening injury including fractures and breakages of bones, cuts, bruises and sprains.
Along with this, the scare and fear of falling can lead to a loss of confidence, mobility, independence and ultimately the quality of life for some individuals. We have a large range of equipment available to assist with mobility and preventing falls, such as; shower/bathroom rails, handrails, ramps and emergency alarms.
