Carrollton, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/09/2015 -- According to a study conducted by the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health hospitalizations are on a steady climb in the state of Texas for people 65 and older. The research states that nearly a third of this demographic group suffered a fall of some sort each year. The numbers are even steeper for woman and especially women in the age bracket of 85 years and older. An interesting finding of the study also concluded that there appears to be clusters in the statistics for falls in these age groups, primarily in areas that are lacking in fall prevention programs.
Vonco Medical has worked closely with nursing home centers, physical therapy and rehabilitation clinics, hospitals and other clients in the field to ensure that their facilities are equipped with the latest physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment available to provide their patients with what they need to increase balance, strength and other functional aspects necessary to reduce falls. Vonco Medical also provides the latest in testing and evaluation equipment which enables rehabilitation specialists to identify risks in patients so that corrective action can be taken. These testing and evaluation devices such as gait analysis plates, hand dynamometers and associated software applications are designed to provide a wealth of useful information that goes hand in hand with a successful physical therapy and rehabilitation program.
Chris Bryant a sales manager for Vonco Medical recently stated "Vonco Medical prides ourselves on staying on top of the latest products designed to help reduce falls. As one of the leading distributors in the country we strive to build and equip medical and physical therapy clinics with the highest quality equipment and programs available. If the outcome results in a better experience for our customers patients then we feel we have done our job."
