Every 17 seconds, someone over 65
is treated in the emergency room for a fall.

Falls are the #1 leading cause of
accidental death for this age group.

The cost of falls is over $60 billion
in the US and UK alone.

The Nymbl Science Mission
Balance is a complex phenomena which takes years to develop as a child. It relies on input from multiple sensory systems including the vestibular, somatosensory, and visual systems.

Improving Balance
Unfortunately, for most people balance declines as they age. This can have very severe consequences, including falls, injury, death, loss of mobility, and inability to live independently.

At Nymbl Science, our mission is to use modern technology to help people improve their balance, and thereby improve their quality of life.

About Nymbl's Balance Improvement System

Key Markets
Physician Screening
“All patients over 65 should be asked when they go to see their GP whether they ever feel unsteady on their feet”
The UK health watchdog

Nymbl distills widely-recognised clinical balance assessments into a 5 minute test and gives a quantifiable result. It assigns each user a Balance Index score and puts them in percentile category for their age group making it easy to screen patients for risk and referring them appropriately - e.g. to a specialist, or for Nymbl Balance Improvement Training, or continued annual evaluation.
Wellness Classes
Some people prefer to exercise as part of a group, and enjoy both the social and motivation aspects of a class.

All the advantages of Nymbl’s highly-effective results in improving balance, through a combination of physical and cognitive exercise, can be found in a group, led by a Nymbl-trained leader.
Home Healthcare
Nymbl brings huge benefits to home healthcare as it allows both the healthcare professional and patient to interact with the same system, sharing results and progress when they are not together.

Outside of visits, the individual can continue training and the health visitor can follow progress, amend/ add exercises, send messages and notifications through the custom-designed “portals” accessible via tablet or computer.
Retirement Homes
Retirement homes have proven to be an ideal context for Nymbl, bringing a stimulating, interactive solution to the life-threatening problem of declining balance.

Working creatively with the fitness and activities managers in a home, Nymbl can be tailored to include classes as well as individual work with the app, further fostering the sense of community and purpose amongst residents - all around improving balance.
