According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 3 million older adults are treated for fall injuries each year in emergency departments. Twenty five percent of seniors 65-85 years old are at risk for a fall this year. For those that do fall, 40% are likely to have multiple falls over the course of the year, and more than 200,000 people have fractured their hips in a fall last year alone!
