- More than 1/3 of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States
- Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of injury deaths. (They are also the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma)
- Many people who fall, even those who are not injured, develop a fear of falling. (This fear may cause them to limit their activities, leading to reduced mobility and physical fitness, and increasing their actual risk of falling)
