Presentation Title: Vision-based gait assessment in older adults with dementia
Abstract: Falls are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in older adults with dementia residing in long-term care. Having access to a frequently updated and accurate estimate of short-term fall risk for each resident will enable care staff to provide targeted interventions to prevent falls and resulting injuries. To this end, machine learning models to estimate and frequently update the short-term fall risk were trained on longitudinal data from 54 older adult participants with dementia. This study is the first to present a machine learning model capable of dynamically estimating short-term fall risk for older adults with dementia. The model used baseline fall risk scores, gait measurements from baseline and in the past 6 days, and daily dose of antipsychotic medication in the past 6 days.
