Clinically significant parameters to evaluate diagnostic and prognostic reliability of a stabilometric platform in the screening of balance defects

Please note that the job is no longer active!

1/3rd of people over 65 fall at least once per year, 1 in 8 patients are admitted to hospital due to a fall, many lose their independence, over 100,000 die annually and costs are at least €15 billion p.a. Many innovative solutions for fall prevention, such as balance monitoring devices, physical/cognitive training, or personal medication based on integrated health information, are not widely used in Europe. Impact could be enhanced by bringing together users, health providers, carers, industry and policymakers, based on current fall prevention good practices across Europe. Joined-up public and private insurers and financiers could bridge the gap between investment and returns such as reduced hospitalisation. A platform of standardisation bodies, industry and users could define and promote the interoperability of devices, systems and protocols and standards take-up.
