FALLSKIP Biomechanical application to evaluate fall risk in older adults

One out of three older adults falls at least once a year, which is one of the major geriatric syndromes and the second world cause of accidental or unintentional death (WHO, 2016; Samantha Turner, Rupert Kisser, & Wim Rogmans, 2015).

The FallSkip application assesses the overall risk of falling by combining the result of the biomechanical test with the main risk factors, age, gender and patient history of falls. The fall risk result is available immediately after the test, which is accompanied by a comprehensive evaluation of the main biomechanical parameters related to falls; By this way, clinicians are assisted during the diagnosis phase, making easier the decision making process.

eValanz System has been specifically designed for the functional assessment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from balance disorders.

Based on eValanz software, it combines static posturography tests with limits-of-stability tests and it monitors the pressure centre of moving targets; it also provides a sensory analysis of the proprioceptive, visual and vestibular systmes.

By comparing results with normal patterns, eValanz facilitates evaluation, assessing the importance and seriousness of the balance disorders in the patient´s daily life.

The cervical whiplash syndrome caused by traffic accidents has a high incidence in Spain and, since there are no effective diagnostic tools, it is a controversial condition.

WAAS/IBV is a biomechanical assessment system specifically developed to control and assess cervical whiplash syndrome caused by traffic accidents. WAAS/IBV generates objective information that cannot be manipulated, and which makes it possible to determine patient´s functionality.

WAAS/IBV allows personalizing rehabilitation and determining the real sequels for each patient avoiding fraud.

Clinical professionals are claiming for new clinical indicators, which allow them to evaluate accurately and objectively the effectiveness and impact of their treatments on patient´s daily life. In that sense, biomechanical measurement techniques are currently the gold standard to provide professionals with reliable and comprehensive information about patient´s functional status.

For that purpose, IBV has launched  a set of equipment, software and accessories than allow clinical professionals to carry out accurate, objective and complete biomechanical analysis of the locomotor system.

This lab provides a collection of software application, which include protocols, database with normal & pathological patterns, as well as IA for assist professionals during the decision making process.
