Abstract

A large Irish research programme: Technology Research for Independent Living (TRIL [1]) worked closely with a fallers’ expert panel of 7 older people (aged 70-84 yrs) to produce a series of short audio visual discussion programmes on falling and fear of falling. These added to daily broadcasts that featured within a TRIL pilot study, exploring use of home based advanced telephone technology to ameliorate social isolation (Wherton and Prendergast 2009 [2]).
