Systematically reduce the fall risk with the app-based Lindera Mobility Analysis
About the Mobility Analysis
The Lindera App analyzes individual fall risk factors, defines intervention targets for risk reduction and proposes tailored measures to prevent falls and enhance mobility. The Mobility Analysis consists of two steps: the in-app fall risk questionnaire and a gait analysis via smartphone camera. The precise 3D motion tracking accurately calculates step patterns as well as body inclination – even with the use of walking aids.
The resulting analysis provides personalized recommendations to prevent falls and maintain mobility in high age. The repeated use of Lindera is associated with significant decreases in fall risk.
The combination of high precision diagnostic and matched recommendations has proven effective in clinical studies. Study results show a fall risk reduction of 18% after the second analysis, a decrease of falls that are resulting in hospitalization and an overall improvement of the clinically relevant gait parameters.
How it works:
Fast and effective
Gait pattern analysis in 30–40 seconds
Integrated into IT documentation systems
All important information about the Lindera Mobility Analysis can be found in our instructions for use.

To the user manual for the SturzApp
The fall risk score is calculated on the basis of the analysis of evidence-based risk factors. We determine the factors from the gait analysis and the questionnaire. The fall risk score can have a value of 0–100. The more risk factors are present, the higher the fall risk score.
The questionnaire and the various risk factors are based on the “state-of-the-art” clinical research and (inter) national guidelines.
Currently, we cannot adequately analyze specific scenarios, such as getting out of the shower. We cannot yet reliably train our algorithm because there are no scientifically substantiated reference values and no uniform movement patterns available for an assessment.
In accordance with expert standards, the questionnaire contains questions about illnesses, medication, cognition and impairments, fall history, excretory behavior, personality, and living situation.
The personality profile is only created if the standard version of the questionnaire is answered – this part is not included in the short version.
The SturzApp personality profile is based on the scientifically substantiated Big Five personality model. This model describes the unique patterns of thinking, feeling, and behavior which make up a person, by means of five basic characteristics that each person has in different ways: Neuroticism, extraversion, openness, tolerance and conscientiousness. Lindera records these five characteristics within the framework of the questionnaire and summarizes the results in a brief personality profile.
