Falls Prevention Equipment

Falls are a major cause of injury for older people and can cause serious injury. Falls can be prevented with simple safety measures in the home and outside. We recommend you consult an occupational therapist or healthcare professional to help assess your risk.

It is estimated that at least one-third of people aged 65 years and over fall one or more times a year. Although many of these falls do not result in injury, they can cause hip and wrist fractures, hip and shoulder dislocations, head injuries and abrasions, bruising and sprains. Those with reduced bone density from conditions such as osteoporosis or osteoarthritis are at a much greater risk of serious injury. Some risk factors for falls are relatively easy to change and the severity of injuries can be reduced.

To help prevent falls, we have put together some useful safety tips along with a selection of products that will increase safety in and around the home. Browse below or download our PDF brochure
