Prevention of slips, trips and falls is important to enable older adults to maintain active, independent and healthy lifestyles.
Slips, trips and falls occur unexpectedly. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year, 1 out of 3 adults falls, resulting in severe disabilities. Unintentional fall injuries led to the death of about 20,400 older adults in 2009.
