Older adults are prone to falls. Falls can occur at home, in public places, or in healthcare agencies. These falls can result in serious injury or death, especially in the elderly. About 15% of falls at home result in serious injuries such as fractures. Falls are the leading cause of accidental death in people 79 years of age and older.
