We need your help with novel research for preventing falls

Updated: Feb 10, 2019

Did you know that falls accident is a significant health problem?

It is known to be the third leading cause of chronic disability with among older adults, with an immense impact on the National Health Service causing a cost of more than £2.3 billion per annum.

Indeed only in the UK 30% of people over 65, and 50% of individuals over 80 falls at least once per year.

How can you help?

According to previous findings, the actions of respiratory muscles can help to maintain balance.

However, we need to understand more about how these muscles can contribute to enhancing human balance, and for this reason, I am now recruiting participant aged 65 or over to take part in a new study that will delve the role of inspiratory muscle in postural stability.

Do you want to know more?

Do you wish to take part?
