The Problem: falls and injuries
  • Among Americans 65+, more than half experience falls each year
  • Among those in healthcare settings, the proportion is even higher…falls are the 3rd most common cause of hospital readmissions
  • Fall-related death rates among adults 65+ increased by 31% from 2007 to 2016; even more alarming is that the fastest-growing death rate was found in the 85+ age group
  • Falls cost the US an estimated $55 billion and thousands of lives lost each year (NIH/CDC)
