TSG Innovation Lab announces its strategic partnership with Nymbl Science, a digital health company specializing in fall prevention.

Nymbl’s patented fall-prevention application is designed to measure, track, and help improve reflexive balance in the elderly population.

“We all have a personal example of how a fall has significantly impacted a loved one’s life; in fact, I lost my grandfather to a fall,” says Ed Likovich, Nymbl’s CEO, in a media release.

“Through this exciting partnership with the TSG Innovation Lab, we will greatly increase our reach to seniors throughout the US. Most falls are preventable; no one should have to receive the call that their loved one has had a catastrophic fall.”

Using Nymbl’s cloud-based mobile application, patients complete a risk assessment based on research supported by the American Geriatrics Society and the British Geriatrics Society. Nymbl generates a balance score identifying fall risk areas for each patient and automatically assigns a customized training program to improve their reflexive balance, to move them out of the high-fall-risk category. Early adopters of this new technology have realized a reduction in their patient fall profile by up to 50%, explains the release, from The Sullivan Group.

Nymbl will be joining other strategic partners of the TSG Innovation Lab, a recently established business unit within The Sullivan Group (TSG).

“We are very excited that Nymbl has joined the TSG Innovation Lab,” states Dan Sullivan, MD, JD, president and CEO of TSG.

“Preventing patient falls has always been an important part of patient safety. Unfortunately, patient falls remain one of the leading causes of litigation in the aging services community,” he adds. “We are optimistic that Nymbl’s scalable solution to improve the reflexive balance in millions of elderly patients will greatly reduce the number of patient falls across the globe.”
