Are you interested in preventng falls? QTUG™ provides Falls risk score (a statistical estimate of a patients' risk of having a fall). It also provides a statistical estimate of Frailty. The Falls risk score and Frailty scores have been extensively validated by eight years of research.
Does your patient have a gait and mobility impairment? QTUG™ can identify specific gait and mobility problems by automatic, colour-coded comparison of patient's mobility (e.g. standing, walking turning) against average values for age and gender. The results are colour coded to highlight potential mobility issues.
QTUG™ can be used to determine how a patient responds to intervention, therapy or medication by analyzing statistical falls risk and frailty scores as well as gait and mobility data across multiple assessments. Trend Falls risk, Frailty and TUG test time data over time as well as view all historical tests.
Based on the American Geriatric Society/British Geriatric Society (AGS/BGS) guidelines for falls prevention. Record and store patients clinical falls risk factors and falls history for future reference and to inform intervention.
Quantitative assessment of each phase of the TUG (Timed Up and Go) test including, standing, sitting, walking and turning. Customise results by pinning most relevant data to the summary results screen. Data are colour-coded to highlight any statistical deviations in mobility from reference values.
Intuitive display of results, ability to track use of mobility aids, turn off timing limits or turn off falls-risk specific functionality.
Add notes on patient assessments. Export all patient results in Excel format. Create both patient-facing and clinician facing reports on each test, in PDF format. Securely and automatically back-up results to the cloud.
Sit with the patient to setup the their profile and record their falls history in less than two minutes.
To get accurate test data, attach the left and right sensors to the legs. The data are transmitted wirelessly via Bluetooth and stored on the tablet.
Once you and the patient are ready, time the TUG test, then hit accept to process the data in real-time.
Discuss the results a tailored treatment plans with your client.
