Is motion science at the heart of fall prevention in older adults taking antihypertensives?

May 3, 2023
Hypertension is prevalent among older adults, with many individuals taking antihypertensive medications. Side effects of such medications and the implications of polypharmacy along with medication changes can lead to unwanted side effects, particularly orthostatic hypotension which places these individuals at an increased risk for falls. Routine motion and gait analysis can offer insight into functional mobility and fall risk so that providers can identify change of status and intervene proactively.
