Healthy Living: Scale Prevents Falls

According to the CDC, falling down is the number one cause of accidental death in people over the age of 65.

But now one scientist says she’s found a way to change that. 

Her company invented a bathroom scale that can measure someone’s risk of falling.

Courtney Hunter explains how in Healthy Living.

The Zibrio Smart Scale will be commercially available this summer.

The creators hope that checking someone’s “fall risk” will become a standard part of doctors’ visits.
