Aultman Orrville Hospital to Offer Free Balance Screening to Help Assess Fall Risk for Seniors

by Bethany Kinnard | Mar 17, 2022
Throughout April, Aultman Orrville Hospital will be offering free balance screening for seniors who may be concerned about their fall risk.

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, among older adults, falls are the leading cause of injury deaths. The free screening can help address that risk using the evidence-based, state-of-the-art Biodex Balance System SD. The Biodex system evaluates static and dynamic balance and gives participants data comparing their level of balance with other individuals of the same age while also identifying areas that need improvement. That data can be taken to a primary care doctor if a physical therapy referral is needed.

Participants in the free screening must be able to stand for two minutes without aid, and supportive shoes are recommended. To schedule a free 30-minute screening or learn more, call 330-684-4735.
