Article: Senior’s Fall Prevention

BD Injury, research and prevention unit.

Each year more than 200,000 BC seniors will experience one or more falls,
resulting in more than 10,000 hospitalizations and more than 800 direct and indirect deaths. Falls among older people often result in disability, chronic pain, loss of independence, reduced quality of life and even death.

Falls were the primary or secondary contributing cause for 12,006 hospital cases among seniors in 2009/2010. When an older person falls, it can have an enduring and devastating impact, resulting in injury, loss of mobility, a reduced quality of life and, in severe cases, death.

BENEFITS WITH ROLLATORS

The rollator is a mobility aid that greatly enhances the user’s autonomy. The rollator allows people of reduced strength and balance a social life – as well as exercise, improving blood circulation and general health. The rollator gives support and relief during a walk – as well as serving as a seat when the user needs a rest.

By allowing the users to decide themselves when to go out or to socialize, the rollator greatly enhances the users’ self-esteem and quality of life. Thus, the rollator – directly and specifically – contributes to the strengthening of public health by allowing people to live life their way.

Today, our product range encompasses more than 30 different rollator models: indoor, outdoor, trolleys, RA walking tables – as well as a wide range of accessories that meet all user demands.

I'm no different from you. I might be older, less agile. My legs are slow but my mind is quick. I have a career. Or maybe I've had one. Either way I'm not slowing down. I can keep up. But some things don't come easy anymore. Small things, and some big ones. Appearance matters, I'm still vain. I'm still happy. I know I need some help, even more than just a little. I don't mind as long as it works. But hey, it is what it is.
