What is FRAT-Up?

FRAT-Up is an assessment tool for evaluating the risk of a subject aged 65+ to experience a fall within a year.The risk assessment is computed on the basis of general information about the health status of the subject, provided by the user through a simple web-based interface.
FRAT-Up is the outcome of the research project Farseeing, a EU project funded under the FP7 framework.

YES. In the current implementation FRAT-Up can be used freely, and no fee is required.
