About the SturzApp
The Lindera Mobility Analysis, or SturzApp for short, easily and precisely determines the individual risk of falling using an app on a smartphone or tablet. The diagnostic support procedure is based on the expert standard for fall prevention. The 3D movement to determine the gait behavior is ascertained with the assistance of artificial intelligence. By means of an approx. 30-second video recording and a questionnaire, our patented algorithms ascertain the individual risk on a scale from 0 to 100. Aids such rollators or walking sticks are allowed.
The resulting analysis provides personalized recommendations to prevent falls and maintain mobility in old age. With repeated use, developmental progress can be shown and systematics can be developed in order to work specifically on maintaining mobility and avoiding falls.
The Lindera Mobility Analysis is a certified medical device. The app can easily be tethered to leading documentation systems in order to significantly relieve specialists.

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.
