General Queries for Fall Proofing Program

Among older adults, ages 65 and older, falls are the leading cause of injury-related death. They are also the most common cause of non-fatal injuries and of hospital admissions for trauma. The reason for this is that in this population, mere soft tissue injuries or minor fractures can cause significant functional impairment, pain, and distress.

Furthermore, falls have a significant adverse impact on the elders’ self-confidence—some would even avoid leaving their homes after only minor falls for fear of falling again. Their social life was thus affected, putting them at risk of developing low mood or depression. Falls could even be fatal if the elders failed to get up and seek medical help.

  • Falls usually occur due to the interaction of multiple risk factors:
  • Visual impairment
  • Poor balance due to neurological conditions, muscle or joint impairments
  • Dizziness e.g., postural hypotension
  • Improper clothing e.g., too long or too loose
  • Environmental hazards in the home e.g., slippery floor, inadequate illumination, obstacles on the floor, and unsuitable furniture at home

Whether it is a slippery floor, clothing getting caught into something, a creaky staircase or an electrical cord, most of the instances of fall happen at home.  Hence, it is best not only to prepare a comfortable stay for the elderly, but also to make modifications that will ensure their safety, prevent injury and falls. This makes Healyos fall proofing Program an indispensable part of optimum care for the elderly population.

Healyos will ensure proper delivery and installation of all the materials required for making your home safe and fall-proof.

  • Install grab rails in the bathroom.to prevent falls while using the toilet or shower
  • Installation of anti-skid mats in the bathroom. Bathroom tiles can be slippery, especially when wet.
  • Addition of handlebars on either sides of the toilet, to make transfers easier and safer
  • Having sufficient and accessible lighting, with switchboards placed near the bed, bathroom as well as near any steps within or outside the house. It is an added advantage if the lights are motion sensitive.
  • Steps within the house can be made less slippery by adding anti-slip tape on the edges, so that the risk of falling over the steps is minimized.
  • Install support rails near steps if there is no handrail.
  • Having grab bars to assist in getting in and out of the bed can also significantly reduce the risk of falling

Dr. Muskan from healyos was my physiotherapist after my ACL reconstruction surgery from Sancheti hospital Pune. She is sincere and hard working. She is also focussed towards patient's recovery and progress. With almost negligible pain I recovered and now able to walk and bend knee.

Very professional in approach. My wife was treated by Dr Shivani and Dr Prachi (2 sessions in a day) and 81 sessions overall. I only say that I was blessed to have these two Dr's neuro physiotherapists for my wife. They moved her from flaccid state to almost independent state in just 2 months. Both Drs were very positive, punctual and needles to mention, goal based and not time based. Technique and equipments used were all with logic and keeping patients improvement in mind. Both were polite to answer hundreds of queries and open to suggestions to alter workout plans. I would highly recommend HealYos for any type of physiotherapy. Thank you team HealYos for your support..

I was wondering about my flexibility and time required to come back to normal life. I got good reference from Healyos for physiotherapy and Dr. Prachi Modi was assigned to me. She helped me boost my confidence and improve in my health. With her experience and knowledge she helped me for my better recovery. I was able to shift from Walker to stick within very less time. Now I am able to walk without stick at home and soon will restore my routine life. Thanks to Healyos and Dr. Prachi Modi.

I contacted Healyos through Sancheti hospital, where I got operated for my ACL reconstruction and meniscus tear repair. Healyos services were prompt when i asked them for home visits starting immediately. My physiotherapist, Dr. Pratiksha Khandebharad was on time for all the appointments which was another important factor me. Her guidance regarding exercises has helped me recover faster, too. Overall my experience with Healyos has been a smooth one.
