Leading Edge Research Underway in Fall Prevention for Seniors
Date:10/25/2007

care providers early detection of the gait instabilities that precede falls, in order to enable intervention before serious injuries occur. The proposed research plan includes delivery of a working prototype incorporating the research findings and laboratory validation of the ambulatory gait and posture monitoring system," says Dr. Lockhart.

"Adding a fall detection and prevention system to our present platform supports AFrame's vision to be the foremost provider of affordable and portable personalized monitoring and alerting solutions supporting multi-resident long term care and outpatient care settings," states Cindy Crump, President and CEO. "I am excited to see the support provided to us by the NIH National Institute on Aging for this important project."

AFrame Digital has also been awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for a program entitled "Non-Intrusive Health Monitoring for Post-Combat Wellness Management." The research under the NIA/NIH grant will also be useful to help service personnel that are recovering from combat injuries.

AFrame Digital, Inc. was founded in January 2005 to develop comprehensive, nonintrusive and intelligent medical health and wellness monitoring for individuals in rehabilitation and long term care. The company provides an innovative wireless wearable "Personal Help Device" called myPHD (TM) that works effectively in an institutional setting or at home. A system provides caregivers and health care personnel with physiological vital signs and personalized baselines and alerts. The company is working with healthcare personnel on monitoring strategies and treatment regimens. AFrame Digital Inc. may be contacted at (703) 560-0512 or info@aframedigital.com.

The project described is supported by grant number R43AG029721 from the National Institute on Aging. The content is solely the respon
