Fall risk assessment for vulnerable people and seniors

Gaitwin®: the digital twin for gait analysis and fall risk assessment

Gaitwin® is an innovative, patented, award-winning solution that assesses the risk of falling in a reliable and simple manner, without the need for qualified personnel, in just 15 seconds. It creates a digital twin of a person’s gait (walking pattern), a “Gait Twin”, from data collected by a sensor worn on a belt. The sensor is connected to a mobile application, powered by AI and hosted in a secure, sovereign cloud.

The solution is the result of cutting-edge research, based in particular on a prospective longitudinal study carried out for more than 2 years, and on scientific publications.

Gaitwin identifies faulty gait markers and assesses fall risk. Based on results, the tested person may be encouraged to join a care pathway to reduce individual fall risk which can stem from different issues: inner ear, eyesight, nutrition, medications, etc.

The solution guides the work of care staff and makes rehabilitation enjoyable, thereby reducing the risk of falls, strengthening autonomy and making progress objective.

A miniature sensor collects gait data and feeds a mobile application that assesses the fall risk and identifies faulty gait markers.

Falls in the U.S.

The importance fall prevention

Falls among elderly people create enormous societal challenges:

  • Every 11 seconds, an elderly person is treated in an emergency room following a fall
  • Every 19 minutes, a senior dies from a fall-related injury

These falls not only threaten the health and independence of seniors, but also create a huge financial pressure on health systems, amplified by the arrival of a large generation of old baby boomers.
