RESEARCH

Principal Investigator


Clinical Research: “Falls Screening Instrument for Primary Care Physicians”

Identification of falls predicting instrument

Like most homeostatic control mechanisms muscle strength and contraction respond to loss of balance to
maintain balance and counteract falls. Based on this concept Prof. Ramlu developed an instrument that could
predict potential fallers by indirectly measuring the muscle strength by simulating loss of balance.

Development of normal values

Prof. Ramlu established the normal values for the above falls predicting instrument by opportunistically
recruiting normal healthy subjects using a cross-sectional study.

Validation of falls screening instrument

The falls predicting instrument was validated by using the desired population, community dwelling older
people over the age of 69 years, recruited through randomly selected primary care physicians using a
prospective study, which acted as the gold standard.
