Number of Falls, in over 65s' resulting in serious injury or death

3.4 million over 65s suffer falls/year that can result

in serious injury, and even death[1]

We have seen benefits in the following cases

Falls prevention – Whether related to episodic hypotension or loss of balance, falling can result in loss of confidence, serious injury or death. We have seen benefits in fall prevention by reducing the unbalancing movements involved in drying and therefore reducing the number of potential falls.


Amputee and Multi Amputee – There are approximately 5-6,000 major limb amputations in England/year[2]. Whether the person has difficulty drying themselves, standing to dry themselves or they cannot dry themselves. We have seen the airBody Dryer® empower the user and provide choice to their daily lives.


Arthritis – A person may find themselves unable to grasp a towel, move or bend. The airBody Dryer® can alleviate this problem by ridding the need for a towel, allowing them to maintain their dignity and confidence.


ALS – There are about 5,000 people living with the condition in the UK at any one time[3]. Throughout the gradual loss of ability in the person limbs the airBody Dryer® can be used as a long term strategy for people as they gradually lose the ability to move and lift. It can help delay the onset of invasive care and allow the person to remain in their own home for longer.


COPD – a person can be quickly exhausted by twisting and bending during drying. The airBody Dryer® can limit the exertion to the person and reduce involvement of a carer. Promoting independence and choice for the user and respite for the carer.
