- What is the purpose of this research?
The objective of this paper is to examine the ways in which subclinical methods can be used for bringing down the instances of falls of patients in hospitals and other clinics etc.
- What is the research question (or questions)? This may be implicit or explicit.
This paper uses an implicit research question. As stated above, it aims to identify ways in which the instances of falls of patients at hospitals and other healthcare centers can be reduced or completely stopped. The key question here is that- can the objective of fall prevention be achieved with subclinical measure like gait balance?
- Give a complete description of the research design of this study.
This is a qualitative study that explores the correlation of sub clinic ways like gait balance in prevention of patient falls at hospitals. The researchers have conducted three trials of 20 seconds each. The evaluation of the outcomes of these trials is done without any bias or external influence, to make it fair. The data for this study is derived from and structured in the form of balance index and the anteroposterior index. There is also information received from the patient that is stored in the mediolateral index
