Screening for risk of falling in the elderly.
We have invented and patented a exercise machine for the following:-
It has granted patents in USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
WHAT PROBLEM DOES FORMULA MOTION ADDRESS?
Falls prevention in the elderly.
Ageing and disability lead to poor mobility, a deterioration of balance and weakening of the musculoskeletal system. This can be addressed by screening and assessing a person’s risk of falling and then targeted balance training which decreases the risk of accidents and falls.
Every year, 1 in 3 elderly people in the EU and the UK will suffer a fall, resulting in 3.5 million fractures and a £44bn cost of treatment.
33% of those people with a hip fracture will die within a year.
Balance training reduces the rate of falls and hospital admissions by up to 55%, in addition to speeding up recovery times.
Formula Motion could prevent 150,000 falls per year, save the EU €1.8bn and save lives.
Formula Motion, will satisfy an unmet market for a low cost, simple and effective multifunctional falls screening, balance training and rehabilitation machine.
A patented system in UK, USA and Europe, it enables a wide range of beneficial movements.
The benefits have been confirmed by medical and sports professionals after assessing the prototype.
We already have interest from a number of commercial end-users/customers.
EXAMPLES OF NEED AND EVIDENCE OF FALLS IN ELDERLY
Formula Motion answers one of the UK government’s ‘four grand challenges’ Mission statement: Ensure that people can enjoy at least 5 extra healthy, independent years of life by 2035.
Strength and balance training has been identified as an effective intervention to reduce falls by the UK government’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
The annual cost of fragility fractures to the UK £4.4 bn.
