Episode 19: Dr Kim Delbaere is merging technology, physiology and psychology to minimise falls risk

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.
