[JOCOC X JC Age@home] Gerontechnology Seminar

Fall is common in elders and is not solely a matter of "careless". It causes over 90% of fragility fractures in old people. Treatment and rehabilitation are a long process. The old fallers normally can't fully retain their mobility. Fall prevention is essential in maintaining good health and quality of life of seniors.

People of high fall risk may find themselves:

  • Have balance problem
  • Feels tired easily or have difficulty when walking up stairs
  • Walks slower than before
  • Responds slower than before
  • Gets worsen eyesight
  • Reduces in weight or loses muscle gradually
  • Falls more often in recent years
Are you / your family members / the elderly you served in your workplace of HIGH FALL RISK? Is fall preventable?

The Gerontechnology nowadays can assess the fall risk of the elderly in an easier way. Regular exercise focusing on balance, muscle strength and agility training are proven can prevent falls of elderly in an effective and convenient way.

JOCOC is invited to speak for the event about fall prevention on 15th December, 2021. Our Centre's Physiotherapist, Dr Charlotte Tsang, and Occupational Therapist I, Ms Lily Lin, are delighted to be invited to speak for the topics: "Fall Prevention Exercise Workshop" and "Integration of Exercise Training into Daily Life Activity to Prevent Fall". Details as below:

Date: 15th December, 2021 (Wednesday)
Time: 10:00 am to 12:30 pm
