< Back to News

We are thrilled to announce that Steady On Your Feet has been shortlisted at the Tees Tech Awards 2024. 

The recognition shines a light on our pioneering platform, which has been developed and rolled-out by strategic brand and digital agency, Better.

Launched in 2020 and based in Better’s home region, the awards celebrate the very best in the Tees Valley’s thriving tech and digital sector. Our nomination is for the Innovation Award, which acknowledges those who’ve introduced cutting-edge products and services, achieved breakthroughs, or advanced their field through digital innovation. 

Steady On Your Feet is revolutionising the falls landscape by streamlining prevention strategies, and delivering impactful healthcare interventions. Leveraging Better’s insight and digital expertise, the intuitive online hub includes a comprehensive suite of resources to empower both older adults and healthcare providers with a wealth of self-care tools.

Our platform-as-a-service (PAAS) product has been designed in close partnership with clinical professionals and established strategies, ensuring clinical relevance and efficacy. This alignment not only strengthens and unifies falls prevention efforts, but also contributes to substantial healthcare savings. With an ageing population and falls resulting in around 76,000 hip fractures annually, it’s a significant issue that costs the NHS and social care over £2 billion every year. 

As well as improving strategies, Steady on Your Feet is promoting active and healthy living, making a positive impact on the well-being of communities throughout the UK. Since the start of 2023, we have seen significant growth, marked by the launch of six live platforms with key healthcare and local authority partners including: South Tees NHS Trust,  Cheshire Integrated Care Board, Devon Integrated Care Board, North Northamptonshire Council, West Northamptonshire Council, Swindon Borough Council, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council. During this time, we have also forged commercial relationships with prominent falls prevention and healthy ageing organisations, such as Move it or Lose it and We Are Undefeatable. These collaborations have bolstered our specialist content library to support active living among the elderly.

Mark Easby, Managing Director at Steady On Your Feet, said:

“We’re proud to be shortlisted at the Tees Tech Awards, which reflects our investment in technology and our vision to develop effective use of digital tools in falls prevention. With Better's reputation for excellence and innovation, Steady On Your Feet is emerging as a leading force in the healthcare sector, delivering measurable results and tangible benefits to users across the UK.”

Adam Gatenby, Steady On Your Feet’s Digital Director, added:

“Our Steady On Your Feet platform is committed to revolutionising falls prevention through developing personalised, self-care tools and providing easier online access to comprehensive information and resources. We’re excited to be recognised and look forward to the award ceremony next month.”

The Tees Tech Awards showcase those who excel in innovation and have significantly impacted the digital landscape. Being shortlisted is a testament to our team’s research, dedication and commitment to driving positive healthcare change.
