    Fall Risk Assessment

    HumanGood Pilot Study

    An Approach to Pragmatic and Scalable Fall Risk Assessment: A Pilot Study in collaboration with HumanGood and Mount Royal University.

    This pilot study explored the use of a short-duration force plate balance test to address the need for scalable fall risk assessment in elderly populations. The motivation for this approach was two-fold:

    • to provide more objective and reliable risk measures than a questionnaire alone
    • to provide a path to large-scale testing & biomarker data collection to support future model development based on label data from documented fall events.
