FallSkip is a biomechanical application, which allows clinicians to evaluate older adults´ fall risk, attributed to their functional state. The system uses an Inertial Measurement Unit integrated in an Android device, which analyses the biomechanical response when performing a modified protocol of the Timed up and Go Test (TGU).

Stems from the IBV´s wide experience from over 40 years innovating in the fields of healthcare technologies & elderly people.
