Falls among the elderly cost the government almost £990 million per year. Falls occur every day for the elderly in retirement care homes and in the NHS hospitals. In the UK alone, over 700,000 people a year are taken to casualty as a result of a fall, many admitted to hospital with hip fractures costing the NHS £1.7 bn.
As we live longer, there is a high emphasis on Fall Prevention and Protection. Fractures have a significant impact on the quality of life among the elderly or those with limiting disabilities, diminishing mobility, independence and self confidence.
