About 1 out of 3 persons above the age of 65 years and 1 out of 2 of those more than 80 years of age fall at least once a year. A fifth of them need medical treatment and 10 per cent sustain fractures. These injuries become a major cause of death, hospitalization or disability. The various risk factors for the fall include the patient-related as well as environment related factors.
