EXPERIENCE ILLINI FALL PREVENTION CLINIC

 
Comforting Hands

THE CLINIC

  • Falls are the leading cause of accidental injury and death among seniors, and 1 in 3 seniors over 65 and 1 in 2 seniors over 85 fall every year.

  • At the Illini Fall Clinic, lead by Professor Jacob Sosnoff, we are dedicated to preventing falls. International research has shown that falls can be prevented with individualized strategies and plans, and that’s exactly the service we wish to provide to you.

  • We specialize in the assessment of fall risk in seniors and individuals living with neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, stroke survivors, etc. We use state-of-the-art equipment and your assessment information to develop individualized prevention strategy plans to meet your specific needs.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE CLINIC

Fall Risk Assessment

  • We will do several tests to assess your walking, thinking, balance, and fall risk.

  • We will ask you to sit and stand several times.

  • We’ll ask you to walk over a mat that digitally records your footsteps.

  • Then, we will ask you sit in a chair, stand up and walk around a cone. 

  • A couple of the walking tasks will also have a thinking portion.  

  • The fall risk assessment tests your vision, your body awareness, and how quickly you can respond to a light.

  • The balance tests ask you to stand on a device that will measure your body sway. We will ask that you remove your shoes to step on the device. 

  • Then, you will be asked to complete some questionnaires about your health, fall history and lifestyle.


We can modify all of our tests, so even if you don't think you could complete these as presented, give us a call and let us describe our modifications. Then together we can figure out if a Fall Risk Assessment will be right for you.
