Revolutionising Senior Care with the Freemed Platform

A Detailed Look at How Baropodometry Can Enhance Senior Safety

Fall prevention for seniors is a top priority in care provision. The Freemed platform by Sensor Medica, distributed in the UK by Axisage, offers a groundbreaking solution.

As our elderly population grows, so does the need for innovative care solutions that prioritize their safety. Among the many risks that the elderly face, falls rank high due to their potential to cause serious health complications. To address this, care providers must utilise the most effective tools available to predict and prevent these falls. This is where the Freemed platform steps in.
Baropodometry platforms, like Freemed, enable a non-invasive evaluation of plantar support, providing insights into the static, dynamic, stabilometric, and videographic aspects of a person's gait and posture. The Freemed platform, versatile and user-friendly, is designed with light and portable aluminium alloy, and features 24k gold-coated pressure sensors for high-resolution imaging. With a high acquisition frequency, it offers a detailed analysis of a senior's fall risk.

The Freemed platform is not just innovative; it's also versatile and user-friendly. Its design features light and portable aluminium alloy with 24k gold-coated pressure sensors, ensuring high resolution imaging and long service life. With a high acquisition frequency of over 400 frames per second, the platform provides a detailed analysis of the gait line and oscillations of the body's centre of gravity, offering valuable insights into a senior's fall risk.

This platform, alongside the integrated freeStep software, supports multiple pressure test methods and allows for comprehensive static, dynamic, stabilometric, and videographic acquisitions. It assesses parameters such as support surfaces, load distribution, podalic axes and angles, foot length, speed, gait line, and rockers. All these elements contribute to a thorough understanding of a senior's balance and stability.

The ability to generate automatic reports based on scientific studies is another crucial feature of the Freemed platform. These reports present clear, concise data and easy-to-interpret information, aiding care providers in identifying potential risks and planning preventive measures. The platform also offers the possibility of displaying the pressure map in sync with video acquisition, giving care providers a comprehensive view of their patient's movement.

The Freemed platform's role becomes clearer when we consider research on the relationship between foot posture and balance in the elderly. Studies show that foot posture, morphology, and stabilometry can predict fall risk in older people. With its superior data acquisition and analysis capabilities, the Freemed platform is an invaluable tool for assessing these factors.

Axisage, the UK distributor for Sensor Medica products, offers full support for clinics adopting the Freemed platform. They facilitate easy assessments and reassessments, enabling care providers to plot treatment progress and design the next stage of care. The platform is also a valuable tool for patient education, as it can easily show patients their biomechanical distortions, which can increase care conversions and referrals.
With platforms ranging from 40cm to 3m wide, Axisage provides solutions to suit every clinic, whether it's short on space or equipped for a full gait lab.

In conclusion, the Freemed platform is a cutting-edge tool that offers detailed analysis to identify seniors' fall risk and take appropriate preventive measures. By adopting this technology, UK care providers can significantly enhance the safety and well-being of senior citizens.

Remember, the key to senior safety is not merely reacting to falls, but preventing them in the first place. By integrating the Freemed platform into their care strategy, clinics can help ensure their elderly patients maintain balance, stability, and overall quality of life.

Adopt the Freemed platform today and significantly enhance the safety and well-being of your senior patients. Contact Axisage for more information.
