As an off-the-shelf solution, Steady On Your Feet is designed for seamless integration with existing fall prevention pathways, including flexibility and customisation options to meet specific needs. Aligned with NICE guidelines, the platform offers a holistic approach to fall prevention and active living for older individuals. Steady On Your Feet represents an effective and efficient innovation for NHS trusts and local authorities by streamlining fall prevention efforts and reducing related healthcare costs.
Director of Public Health at Cambridgeshire County Council, Jyoti Atri, explains:
“The theme of this year’s Falls Prevention Week is ‘Turn Awareness into Action’, and Steady On Your Feet is the ideal way to take action.”
“Falls are one of the most common causes of injury in older people, particularly as winter approaches and the weather gets colder and wetter. But many falls are avoidable, particularly if you understand your personal risks and act now to keep doing the things you enjoy.”
Councillor Richard Howitt, Chair of Cambridgeshire County Council’s Adults and Health Committee, added: “With one in three 65-year-olds having experienced a fall, I’m pleased that we are launching this new risk checker to help our residents stay stronger for longer.
