Prevention in today’s dynamic health space is not only important, it is crucial. With the rising costs of health insurance and ACA or Obamacare in place, Fall Prevention for the elderly is of special concern, studies show that after the age of 55 one’s propensity to fall and injury themselves is statistically trebled. Due to chronic disease and osteoporosis in the elderly, these individuals are far more likely to break/fracture bones, tare ligaments and cause increase hospitalizations. Once hospitalized these elderly patients are more susceptible to other illnesses due to debilitating comorbidities that might be exacerbated by the fall in the first place. These are higher costs that the government is now inclined to pay as preventative medicine. It is far more cost effective for government health institutions like Medicare to reimburse and invest in a Fall Prevention program, where seniors are monitored and assessed for vestibular issues and can then be treated before a debilitating and life altering fall happens.
The significance of diagnosis is crucial to this concept. Medical diagnosis is the process of determining which disease or condition explains a person’s symptoms and signs. It is most often referred to as diagnosis with the medical context being implicit. The information required for diagnosis is typically collected from a history and physical examination of the person seeking medical care. Often, one or more ways to find a diagnosis is done through diagnostic testing. It is often challenging, because many signs and symptoms are nonspecific. For example, syncope or instability of gait (vestibular balance), are merely just a symptom, which does not expressly indicate any other comorbidities or linkages with other disorders.
Wouldn’t it be great if they have a specific machine to test to differentiate the specific diagnosis?
The equipment we offer has been clinically tested to provide sound and accurate diagnostic data to the healthcare provider, we strive to ensure that the software that runs these machines are updated regularly and approved by the manufacturer.
