Innovation in supporting people at risk of falling

The Health, Design & Technology Institute (HDTI) at Coventry University, and the West Midlands Regional Telehealthcare Network and Warwickshire PCT were funded by NHS West Midlands to evaluate the use of fall detectors in the West Midlands. The project found that there is a lack of knowledge amongst the public and healthcare professionals, which can prevent the use of fall detectors by people who may benefit from them. Consultation was carried out with both stakeholders and users as well as further evaluation. Please follow the link to find out more:
