In a nutshell: The Prediction of Falls In Rehabilitation Settings Tool (Predict FIRST) can be used alongside motor function to identify those most at risk of falls in the six weeks following a stroke. This study compared this tool to the real falls frequency to test its accuracy. While Predict FIRST has the ability to make good predictions, it was found to underestimate the risk of falls overall.
