Political endorsement, stakeholder support

PSI’s new Balance Mat invention has been endorsed by Dr David Gillespie, a federal politician with thirty years of experience as a general practitioner and the former Assistant Minister for Health.

Dr Gillespie provided a showcase opportunity for the Balance Mat inside Australian Parliament House, Canberra on 14 February 2018 as part of a health policy forum.

In appreciation of the Council on the Ageing ACT (COTA ACT)’s long-standing commitment to the testing and development of the Balance Mat, COTA ACT President Ewan Brown (pictured, right, with Dr Gillespie (centre) and Balance Mat General Manager Ian Bergman (left) was invited to the health policy forum as a distinguished guest.

Dr Gillespie recognised the importance of the Balance Mat as a breakthrough in balance measurement and saw immediate potential for the product to be used in falls risk assessment in the aged care sector, particularly in rural areas.
