Did you know that in 2018 falls were the leading cause of injury death in Australia responsible of 37% of all deaths. Knowing exactly which factors may contribute to imbalance and how to best address those issues is the first step to improved confidence and reduced risk of falling. We offer comprehensive assessments incorporating guidance from NSW Health and high-tech equipment to measure your balance function.
At Ear Studio we have vestibular Audiologists who specialise in all things related to balance and
dizziness. The risk of falling is higher when the balance system is compromised.
At our clinic in Castle Hill we offer professional falls risk assessments which are designed to give you a
clear picture of your risk of falls and how your balance system currently works. From here we
provide a report to your GP and we can guide you in a direction to improve your balance and reduce
the risk of falling. This may be done in clinic or with other health professionals.
The human body operates a very complex and sophisticated system to keep us in balance.
Many factors like medication, chronic diseases, or reduced function of the balance organ can
compromise this system and increase the risk of falling.
Knowing which factors influence your balance is a great starting point. Based on the NSW
Health system we have put together a comprehensive falls risk assessment that incorporates
general questions about your health as well as high-tech measurements of your balance
functions. With this we can guide you in the right direction and together with your GP work
on improving your balance and reducing the risk of falls.
It’s what makes us not only different, but unique to other hearing health providers that ensures we deliver
consistent and positive hearing outcomes.
