Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in older adults. Primary care physicians do not have the knowledge or time to complete fall-risk assessments.

SmartGait LLC evaluates fall-risk in older adults before a fall has occurred to allow timely deployment of preventive measures (for clinic and home use) and allocation of limited medical resources.
