Build Fall Prevention Referrals for your PT/OT Practice

We're searching for great partners

If you're looking to build your physical or occupational therapy practice and further your mission of compassionate care, we want to work with you! We're seeking talented physical therapists and occupational therapists to join our fall prevention referral network.

All StandStrong partners focus on patient-centered care. Becoming a StandStrong partner gives practitioners access to patient referrals for fall prevention physical therapy and occupational therapy, our extensive clinical and compliance training resources and a variety of other benefits. Additionally, being part of our referral network means you'll be at the forefront of fall prevention strategies that help patients take back their independence and improve their quality of life.

Broadening the reach of the StandStrong System

StandStrong’s fall prevention system gives patients comprehensive strategies to increase mobility and reduce falls and debilitating injuries. Our goal is to help patients avoid injuries, build confidence and maintain their independence at home. Our program includes:

  1. One-on-one therapy, including perturbation training, to improve each patient’s balance, strength and gait.
  2. Reviewing patient’s daily/nightly routine and help modify activities to minimize fall risk.
  3. Training on avoiding falls in the kitchen, bathroom and other areas in and around the house.
  4. Home exercise program tailored to patient.
  5. If a patient is using a cane, walker or other assistive device, ensuring device is functional and used properly.
  6. Vision screen to help ensure impaired vision is not leading to a fall.
  7. Medication screen to help ensure one or a combination of medications do not increase the risk of a fall.


Therapists who partner with us will have access to all of the resources in our system and fulfill a vital role in preventing falls. Become a partner by contacting StandStrong directly at partner@stage.preventfalls.org, by calling 855-824-8724, or sending a message online.

Helping improve quality of life

Every year, more than one out of four seniors experience a fall. One out of five of these falls leads to a severe injury. The fear of falling and serious injury has a detrimental impact on daily life. StandStrong’s fall prevention system helps older adults confidently return to their daily routine and maintain their independence.

Physical and occupational therapists help their older adult patients regain balance and increase leg and core strength which all aids in avoiding falls. Likewise, therapists show their patients how everyday activities, like cooking, cleaning, and getting in and out of the care, can be accomplished much more safely. By increasing confidence that daily activities can be accomplished with little risk of falling, older adults can see an almost instant improvement in their quality of life.
