Falls from poor balance can cause serious, and even life-threatening, injuries.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Each year, one in three adults over the age of 65 falls, and the risk of falling increases proportionately with age
- Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.
- Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall, and every 19 minutes an older adult dies from a fall.
