/

NeuRA is in the unique position of being able to tackle the growing problem of falls in our community using a dynamic mix of disciplines.  With a background in physiotherapy, Kim is passionate about assisting an ageing population to minimise their falls risk. Falls and fractures account for more than half of all injury-related health care costs in Australia, estimated at over 500 million dollars to the economy each year. Kim has created a number of exercise based iPad apps specifically designed to minimise falls risk.
