Walking Steadiness is a useful technique for determining the fall risk of elderly individuals. Here’s how to enable iOS 16 walking steadiness notifications.
Walking Steadiness, which is compatible with iPhone 8 or later and iOS 15 or later, use algorithms to track parameters such as walking speed, step length, walking asymmetry, and double support time.
These are categorized to offer an overall score of Good, Low, or Very Low, indicating a danger of falling during the following year. In addition, the Health app offers activities to enhance walking stability.
- OK – At this level, walking steadiness is typical, and there is no chance of falling within the next year.
- Low – At this level, walking steadiness has deteriorated to the point where there is an increased risk of falling in the coming year.
- Extremely Low – At this level, walking stability is extremely unstable, and there is a high danger of falling during the next 12 months.
The iPhone delivers a notification if the user’s steadiness falls or remains low. These reminders, together with data on walking steadiness or other health information, can be shared with friends, family, and caregivers.
