INSTALLATION OF A SERVOSCALA TO PLATFORM FOR SENIORS

Sometimes the installation of a servo scale is an obligatory choice since the stairs are one of the most dangerous places in the domestic environment.

- the nervous system such as stroke, dementia and Parkinson’s;
- cardiovascular system such as orthostatic hypotension and arrhythmias;
- the osteoarticular system as friction and foot problems.
70% of the falls occur inside your home and about half of these are caused by environmental factors.
According to ISTAT 2014 data, older people live much longer than half a century ago thanks to a rapid progress that has led to a change in the lifestyle of the population.
