Don’t be a fall guy
Older people in Rutherglen and Cambuslang are being urged to protect themselves against falls this winter.
Physiotherapists are calling for people in Scotland over the age of 50 to take a simple test that determines their risk of suffering a fall.
To coincide with Older People’s Day on October 1 the CSP launched their ‘Get Up and Go’ video to demonstrate the test, which involves timing how long it takes a person to rise from a chair, walk three metres, turn around, walk back to the chair and sit down.
The video can be viewed a t www. csp. o r g . u k / timedupandgo.
