The past decade has seen an increased number of guidelines and programs developed to improve the assessment and treatment of falls risk. Drone Chi employs direct manipulation of a drone by the body to cultivate an awareness of breath, balance and co-ordination. Aesthetically inspired by Tai Chi, the drone responds to small changes in movement, breath and balance, the working system has been demonstrated numerous times most notably at the International Conference of Human-Computer Interaction (Glasgow) and the CISCO x RMIT Health Transformation Lab Launch
