Enabling Active Independent
Lifestyle Among Elderly
Ripple Healthcare was born on the simple and strong belief that hip fractures among the elderly due to falls can be prevented.
Hip fractures are one of the greatest medical crises around the globe. Yet, while many fall management solutions have existed for decades, they've always created a trade-off between mobility and safety, while being discomforting and obtrusive to everyday life and often remaining unworn.
We have applied Bio-design principles and Lean Development model to solve this huge unmet need. Ripple Healthcare is passionate and committed to empower elderly for an active, independent and a dignified lifestyle.
Beginning of the End
Falls are the largest cause of injury-related hospitalizations.
1 in 3 elders above 65 years of age fall once a year, and with the ageing population being one of the fastest growing demographic in a lot of countries, falls will be one of the largest age-related problems.
Ripple Healthcare takes an innovative evidence-based approach that increases awareness among elders and their loved ones about their fall risk, and provides personalized interventions to reduce this risk and empowers them to be more active and independent.
