Walking insecurity is a typical side effect of a long life, but it also affects younger people due to illness, accidents or too little exercise. Those affected then complain about an insecure sense of space. Above all, they do not feel safe when walking, but it is better when sitting or lying down.
The most serious consequence of gait insecurity is an increased risk of falling. This risk increases even more when combined with possible previous illnesses, medication or little physical activity. If people fall, especially older people, this can result in severe fractures (e.g. fracture of the neck of the femur). However, indirect consequences, such as need for care, can also occur after a fall.
EQUIMedi measures movements or inclinations characteristic of gait insecurity. This enables the physician to detect an increased risk of falling at an early stage. In addition, the success of the therapy measures taken can be monitored and documented. With EQUIFit patients train their sense of balance and improve their stability and gait safety with biofeedback. As a preventative measure, EQUIFit thus reduces the risk of falls.
