Fall prevention - Safety in everyday life

Have you fallen over once or more in the last few years?
Do you require visual aids, such as spectacles or contact lenses?
Do you sometimes feel unsteady when walking, or do you suffer from dizziness?

Feel safe again with fall prevention from Rheumaliga Schweiz (Swiss League against Rheumatism).

For the time being, this service is available only in German, French and Italian.

All the advantages of fall prevention

  • Awareness
    Tripping hazards are discussed and rectified.
  • Safety
    An exercise programme (strength and balance), which is individually tailored to your needs, helps to reduce your risk of falling.
  • Independence
    Reducing the risk of falling maintains your quality of life and supports you in independent living.

Services and cover

With expert advice you can reduce the risk of falling. To this end, Rheumaliga Schweiz offers personal fall prevention to senior citizens living independently. Specialists in physiotherapy and ergotherapy check your living conditions for fall hazards, and put together an individual exercise programme for you to help with balance and strength, based on various tests.

The costs for personal fall prevention are met in full by CSS Insurance, provided you are insured with CSS, Intras or Arcosana and have supplementary health insurance.
