Follow the conference on X #FallsTech

“Suffering from a fall can be traumatic for both the individual and their family but innovations such as eFalls could provide a fantastic solution to prevent such incidents, saving people from a lot of pain, as well as time and resource for the NHS.

Health Minister Andrew Stephenson May 2024

“Falls are the number one single reason why older people are taking to the emergency department, and around 30% of people 65 and over will fall at least once a year. Care outside hospital is of particular importance for older people living with frailty, who are much more likely than younger people to be admitted to hospital, and likely to have a longer stay when they are admitted.”

NHS England Plan for Recovering Urgent and Emergency Care January 2023

Join us at the forefront of healthcare innovation as we delve into the transformative role of digital technology in preventing falls within the NHS. Falls are a significant concern in healthcare, particularly for the elderly and vulnerable populations, leading to severe consequences such as injuries, loss of independence, and increased healthcare costs. This conference is dedicated to addressing these challenges by harnessing the power of digital technology and showcasing current and emerging technologies and how they can support you to prevent falls in your service. By bringing together leading experts, healthcare professionals, policymakers, and technology innovators, we aim to explore the latest advancements, share best practices, and forge new pathways in falls prevention, and ultimately reduce the incidence of falls across the NHS.

The conference will focus on the use of digital technologies including wearable devices and artificial intelligence (AI) and focus on real world implementation and benefits in terms of how they can enhance your service and reduce falls. There will be an opportunity to hear from suppliers and view technologies in person.
