Tuesday’s  Topic: Falls Prevention – How To Minimize Risk and Reverse and Epidemic of Injury

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, One in three adults aged 65 and older falls each year. 2 Of those who fall, 20% to 30% suffer moderate to severe injuries that make it hard for them to get around or live independently, and increase their risk of early death.


 Creating more stable and easy-to-use walking aids brought the issue of falls among seniors to the forefront for the company’s founder Mazy Holiday.  Mazy  recognized that falls prevention for seniors was a critical necessity, and began developing a mobile application that incorporated programs with the highest demonstrated return rate on reducing falls.

Because of the lack of nationwide and organized dissemination of falls prevention programs for seniors, digital technology has become the clear and obvious solution for a segment of the population that has limited income, and often does not or cannot leave the house regularly.

On Tuesday’s show,  we will learn about iStand while gaining some important tips on how to help prevent falls.

Through our conversation with Dina, we will all learn how to ‘Be A Healthy Caregiver!’
