Falls can happen to anyone irrespective or age or medical condition. Over 65% of falls may cause no serious harm however the consequences of falling can be serious, ranging from distress and loss of confidence, through to injuries, pain and loss of independence.
Many falls are caused by a combination of things like slipping or tripping, people with existing conditions such as low blood sugar, ear infections, reduced mobility from arthritis, age, or medication.
As part of our blogs fall awareness month, we have identified our top 5 selling fall products which have proven to help people who are at serious risk from falling.
