Every year, almost one in three people over the age of 65 experiences a fall. There is a largely unmet need for a method to measure the risk of falls. In the conventional balance and falls risk assessment, clinicians score the subject. While such methods provide some information on the subject’s balance and functional ability, they are mostly dependent on the views and experience of the clinician, making them subjective and prone to error.
