Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events. (1/2115)

BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events.  (+info)

Results of the Bosworth method for unstable fractures of the distal clavicle. (2/2115)

Eleven consecutive Neer's type II unstable fractures of the distal third of the clavicle were treated by open reduction and internal fixation, using a temporary Bosworth-type screw. In all cases, fracture healing occurred within 10 weeks. Shoulder function was restored to the pre-injury level. A Bosworth-type screw fixation is a relatively easy and safe technique of open reduction and internal fixation of type II fractures of the distal third of the clavicle.  (+info)

EMG responses to free fall in elderly subjects and akinetic rigid patients. (4/2115)

OBJECTIVES: The EMG startle response to free fall was studied in young and old normal subjects, patients with absent vestibular function, and patients with akinetic-rigid syndromes. The aim was to detect any derangement in this early phase of the "landing response" in patient groups with a tendency to fall. In normal subjects the characteristics of a voluntary muscle contraction (tibialis anterior) was also compared when evoked by a non-startling sound and by the free fall startle. METHODS: Subjects lay supine on a couch which was unexpectedly released into free fall. Latencies of multiple surface EMG recordings to the onset of free fall, detected by a head mounted linear accelerometer, were measured. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: (1) EMG responses in younger normal subjects occurred at: sternomastoid 54 ms, abdominals 69 ms, quadriceps 78 ms, deltoid 80 ms, and tibialis anterior 85 ms. This pattern of muscle activation, which is not a simple rostrocaudal progression, may be temporally/spatially organised in the startle brainstem centres. (2) Voluntary tibialis EMG activation was earlier and stronger in response to a startling stimulus (fall) than in response to a non-startling stimulus (sound). This suggests that the startle response can be regarded as a reticular mechanism enhancing motor responsiveness. (3) Elderly subjects showed similar activation sequences but delayed by about 20 ms. This delay is more than can be accounted for by slowing of central and peripheral motor conduction, therefore suggesting age dependent delay in central processing. (4) Avestibular patients had normal latencies indicating that the free fall startle can be elicited by non-vestibular inputs. (5) Latencies in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease were normal whereas responses were earlier in patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA) and delayed or absent in patients with Steele-Richardson-Olszewski (SRO) syndrome. The findings in this patient group suggest: (1) lack of dopaminergic influence on the timing of the startle response, (2) concurrent cerebellar involvement in MSA may cause startle disinhibition, and (3) extensive reticular damage in SRO severely interferes with the response to free fall.  (+info)

Effects of physical and sporting activities on balance control in elderly people. (5/2115)

OBJECTIVE: Balance disorders increase with aging and raise the risk of accidental falls in the elderly. It has been suggested that the practice of physical and sporting activities (PSA) efficiently counteracts these age related disorders, reducing the risk of falling significantly. METHODS: This study, principally based on a period during which the subjects were engaged in PSA, included 65 healthy subjects, aged over 60, who were living at home. Three series of posturographic tests (static, dynamic with a single and fast upward tilt, and dynamic with slow sinusoidal oscillations) analysing the centre of foot pressure displacements or electromyographic responses were conducted to determine the effects of PSA practice on balance control. RESULTS: The major variables of postural control were best in subjects who had always practised PSA (AA group). Those who did not take part in PSA at all (II group) had the worst postural performances, whatever the test. Subjects having lately begun PSA practice (IA group) had good postural performances, close to those of the AA group, whereas the subjects who had stopped the practice of PSA at an early age (AI group) did not perform as well. Overall, the postural control in the group studied decreased in the order AA > IA > AI > II. CONCLUSIONS: The period during which PSA are practised seems to be of major importance, having a positive bearing on postural control. It seems that recent periods of practice have greater beneficial effects on the subject's postural stability than PSA practice only at an early age. These data are compatible with the fact that PSA are extremely useful for elderly people even if it has not been a lifelong habit.  (+info)

Fracture epidemiology and control in a developmental center. (6/2115)

During 3.5 years, 182 fractures occurred among 994 residents of a developmental center. The fracture rate was 5.2 per 100 person-years (1.7 times greater than the rate in the US population). Fracture rate was significantly greater in residents with: epilepsy, older age, male gender, white race, independent ambulation, osteoporosis, and residence in intermediate care (versus skilled nursing) units; it was not affected by severity of mental retardation. Hand and foot bones were fractured in 58% of cases. Femur fracture occurred in 13 cases (7%). Fracture was caused by a fall in 41 cases (23%); its cause was indeterminable in 105 cases (58%). Fractures, occurring without significant injury, may be an important cause of preventable disability in this population. Control measures are suggested.  (+info)

The prognosis of falls in elderly people living at home. (7/2115)

BACKGROUND: there are few longitudinal studies of the prognosis of falling at home. OBJECTIVE: to determine outcomes in older people who fall once and more than once. DESIGN: longitudinal prospective cohort study. SETTING: primary care in the UK. SUBJECTS: 1815 subjects over 75 who had a standardized and validated health check. METHOD: annual interviews over 4 years. Practice records were used to establish death and admission to institutions. RESULTS: risk of death was increased at 1 year [odds ratio (OR) 2.6, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.4-4.7] and 3 years (OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.2-3.0) for recurrent fallers but not single fallers (OR 0.9, 95% CI 0.5-1.6 at 1 year; OR 0.97, 95% CI 0.7-1.4 at 3 years). Risk of admission to long-term care over 1 year was markedly increased both for single fallers (OR 3.8, 95% CI 1.8-8.3) and recurrent fallers (OR 4.5, 95% CI 1.7-12). Functional decline was not related to faller status, the latter being very variable from one year to the next. CONCLUSIONS: the stronger relationship between falling and admission to long-term care rather than mortality supports the hypothesis that the perceived risks for those who fall only once are exaggerated.  (+info)

Carotid sinus hypersensitivity--a modifiable risk factor for fractured neck of femur. (8/2115)

BACKGROUND: the potential impact on morbidity, mortality and health care economics makes it important to identify patients at risk of fracture, in particular fractured neck of femur (FNOF). Older patients with carotid sinus hypersensitivity (CSH) are more likely to have unexplained falls and to experience fractures, particularly FNOF. Our objective was to determine the prevalence of CSH in patients with FNOF. DESIGN: case-controlled prospective series. METHODS: consecutive cases were admissions over 65 years with FNOF. Controls were consecutive patients admitted for elective hip surgery, frail elderly people admitted to hospital medical wards and day-hospital patients. All patients had a clinical assessment of cognitive function, physical abilities and history of previous syncope, falls and dizziness, in addition to repeated carotid sinus massage with continuous heart rate and phasic blood pressure measurement. RESULTS: heart rate slowing and fall in systolic blood pressure was greater for patients with FNOF than those admitted for elective hip surgery (P < 0.05 and P < 0.001). CSH was present in 36% of the FNOF group, none of the elective surgery group, 13% of the acutely ill controls and 17% of the outpatients. It was more likely to be present in FNOF patients with a previous history of unexplained falls or an unexplained fall causing the index fracture. The heart rate and systolic blood pressure responses to carotid sinus stimulation were reproducible. CONCLUSION: older patients with an acute neck of femur fracture who do not give a clear history of an accidental fall or who have had previously unexplained falls are likely to have CSH. CSH may be a modifiable risk factor for older patients at risk of hip fracture.  (+info)

Falls and fall-related injuries remain a frequent complication of strokes. Fall and injury prevention based on fall risk scores and level of fall risk, such as low, moderate or high, is insufficient, requiring that clinicians redesign fall prevention programs based on patients individualized fall and injury risk factors. Accepting that stroke is one of the leading causes of disability world-wide, all efforts should be made to protect these patients from falls and fall-related injuries. It is well known that falls result in fear of falling, greater disability and even loss of life. While the evidence for stroke-specific fall prevention interventions is still emerging, clinical experts must rely on clinical expert knowledge to conduct stroke-specific fall risk assessment needed to individualize fall prevention plans of care, while assuring injury risk and prevention strategies are included. This population-based approach presented in this lecture redesigns traditional universal programs in order ...
We identified 41 trials assessing the effects of multifactorial intervention for preventing falls in older people living in the community, with the mean age of participants ranging from 72 to 85 years. The trials included a range of multifactorial interventions, with most trials including at least two or more of the intervention components recommended by NICE.2 Exercise-in 35 of 41 trials-was the most common component of multifactorial interventions included in this review with more than half of all trials including study participants judged to be at higher risk of falls at enrolment (ie, participants had either presented for medical attention because of a fall or reported recurrent falls in the past year).. Multifactorial interventions were found to reduce the rate of falls when compared with those who received the comparator intervention; however, there was considerable unexplained heterogeneity. Multifactorial interventions are a specific type of intervention, where their definition means ...
Falls are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries in the United States. In 2006, nearly 8 million persons were treated in emergency departments (EDs) for fall injuries (1). Pets might present a fall hazard (2), but few data are available to support this supposition. To assess the incidence of fall-related injuries associated with cats and dogs, CDC analyzed data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP) for the period 2001--2006. This report describes the results of that analysis, which showed that an estimated average of 86,629 fall injuries each year were associated with cats and dogs, for an average annual injury rate of 29.7 per 100,000 population. Nearly 88% of injuries were associated with dogs, and among persons injured, females were 2.1 times more likely to be injured than males. Prevention strategies should focus on 1) increasing public awareness of pets and pet items as fall hazards and of situations that can lead to fall injuries and 2) ...
Falls and fall-related injuries among older adults have emerged as serious global health concerns, which place a burden on individuals, their families, and greater society. As fall incidence rates increase alongside our globally aging population, fall-related mortality, hospitalizations, and costs are reaching never seen before heights. Because falls occur in clinical and community settings, additional efforts are needed to understand the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that cause falls among older adults; effective strategies to reduce fall-related risk; and the role of various professionals in interventions and efforts to prevent falls (e.g., nurses, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, health educators, social workers, economists, policy makers). As such, this Research Topic seeks articles that describe interventions at the clinical, community, and/or policy level to prevent falls and related risk factors. Preference will be given to articles related to multi-factorial,
The famed nonprofit Los Angeles Jewish Home announced today the implementation of a fall prevention and fitness program designed to address one of the major health challenges faced by seniors.
The consequences of falls can be serious in elderly people who are often unable to regain pre-injury levels of physical function. Patients with hip fractures and other injuries can also experience a loss of confidence, which influences quality of life.1-,2 Research on the prevention of falls and the minimisation of their consequences is therefore urgently needed. The trial by Shaw et al assessed the effectiveness of a multifactorial intervention with blinded outcome assessment in older people with cognitive impairment and dementia presenting to an AE department after a fall. Unlike previous studies that have shown the effectiveness of multifactorial interventions for preventing falls,3 Shaw et al found no significant effect associated with the intervention. These findings suggest that even though multifactorial interventions may prevent falls in elderly people with no cognitive impairment, the same effect cannot be assumed for elderly patients with cognitive impairment. It is unclear why the ...

Background With increasing age neuromuscular deficits (e.g., sarcopenia) may result in impaired physical performance and an increased risk for falls. Prominent intrinsic fall-risk factors are age-related decreases in balance and strength / power performance as well as cognitive decline. Additional studies are needed to develop specifically tailored exercise programs for older adults that can easily be implemented into clinical practice. Thus, the objective of the present trial is to assess the effects of a fall prevention program that was developed by an interdisciplinary expert panel on measures of balance, strength / power, body composition, cognition, psychosocial well-being, and falls self-efficacy in healthy older adults. Additionally, the time-related effects of detraining are tested.. Methods/Design Healthy old people (N = 66) between the age of 65 to 80 years will participate in this trial. The testing protocol comprises tests for the assessment of static / dynamic steady-state balance ...
In this trial, which was underpowered to detect small, but possibly important reductions in serious fall injuries, a structured physical activity program compared with a health education program did not reduce the risk of serious fall injuries among sedentary older people with functional limitations …
The Iowa Department on Aging has received a federal grant to prevent falls by at-risk Iowans.. According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, unintentional falls are the leading cause of injury-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths for Iowans aged 65 or older.. Increasing the variety and availability of evidenced-based fall prevention programs throughout the state is key to reducing the number of fall related injuries said Iowa Department on Aging Director Donna Harvey. Thanks to this project, the State will establish a responsive, integrated fall prevention network that enables more at-risk Iowans to participate in falls prevention programs and learn strategies to decrease their chances of falling. We hope you will strongly consider becoming engaged in this effort. It is an investment in Iowa s future; if we can educate people today, we can prevent fall-related injuries and deaths in the years to come..

A hip or pelvic fracture is a major fall-related injury which often causes a decline in mobility performance and physical activity. Over 40% of patients with hip fracture have cognitive impairment or dementia and poorer rehabilitation outcomes than those without cognitive impairment. In this subgroup, there is a lack of evidence on the best practices supporting recovery. The main aim of this study is to investigate the effects of a transitional care intervention after inpatient rehabilitation on physical activity and functional performance in this group of cognitively impaired patients. This dual-centre, randomised controlled trial compares a multifactorial intervention with usual care as control condition. Two hundred and forty community-dwellers (≥ 65 years) with a hip or pelvic fracture and mild to moderate cognitive impairment (MMSE 17-26) are recruited at the end of inpatient rehabilitation. The four-month intervention consists of (a) an individually tailored, progressive home exercise program
Annualized rate per 1,000 population for fall injury episodes for which a health-care professional was contacted either in person or by telephone for advice or treatment. † Estimates are based on household interviews of a sample of the noninstitutionalized civilian population.. § 95% confidence interval.. In 2012, the U.S. rate of nonfatal fall injuries receiving medical attention was 43 per 1,000 population. Rates increased with age for adults aged ≥18 years. Adults aged 18-44 years had the lowest rate of falls (22 per 1,000), and the rate for those aged ≥75 years was higher (121 per 1,000) than for all other age groups.

1. Introduction. According to the reports by Suzuki et al. [1] and Demura et al. [2] , which researched the conditions related to falling, the fall incidence rate for one year was approximately 20% in the community-dwelling elderly aged 65 and over, although regional differences were observed. Because fall incidence increases with age, this increases the possibility of the elderly sustaining fractures and becoming bedridden. A decline in physical fitness seriously limits the activities of daily living (ADL) for the elderly and increases the possibility of a fall. Therefore, it is important for the elderly to adequately evaluate their physical fitness levels in order to achieve an independent life without falls.. Suzuki et al. [3] evaluated the life function and physical functions of the community-dwelling elderly using the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology Index and reported that the scores of fallers were higher than those of nonfallers. In addition, Tinetti et al. [4] reported that ...
While they acknowledge that there wasnt enough evidence for reviewers to look at the differences in exercise modality or doses, authors note that there may also be longer-term benefits of introducing fall prevention exercise habits in people in the general community. They point out that most of the studies reviewed focused on programs that lasted 12 weeks or more, with nearly a third lasting a year or more. These findings highlight the importance of primary prevention, they write.. Even with the definitive conclusion on the overall effectiveness of exercise in falls prevention, authors of the review believe more work should be done to tease out the impact of various exercise programs, though they advise that the studies will need to be very large. They also recommend further research into fall prevention programs in emerging economies where the burden of falls is increasing more rapidly than in high-income countries, and the need to investigate how best to integrate falls prevention ...
Falling can pose a serious health risk to older adults in acute, home, and institutional environments. Using the Hendrich II Fall Risk Model, this instructional program demonstrates how to assess patients for strength and mobility, extrinsic and intrinsic fall risk factors, and cognition. It also stresses the importance of assessing risk factors when conditions change, as well as, how to reduce fall risks by properly interpreting the assessment, and applying appropriate interventions. This program is an excellent resource for all health care professionals involved in assessing the mobility of older adults ...

The research in this thesis is intended to aid caregivers supervision of toddlers to prevent accidental injuries, especially injuries due to falls in the home environment. There have been very few attempts to develop an automatic system to tackle young childrens accidents despite the fact that they are particularly vulnerable to home accidents and a caregiver cannot give continuous supervision. Vision-based analysis methods have been developed to recognise toddlers fall risk factors related to changes in their behaviour or environment. First of all, suggestions to prevent fall events of young children at home were collected from well-known organisations for child safety. A large number of fall records of toddlers who had sought treatment at a hospital were analysed to identify a toddlers fall risk factors. The factors include clutter being a tripping or slipping hazard on the floor and a toddler moving around or climbing furniture or room structures. The major technical problem in detecting ...

Cooperative Studies of Intervention Techniques, or FICSIT, initiative, launched in 1990 to improve physical function in old age.. Research from these and other FICSIT trials has demonstrated the benefits of strength training for older people and the value and cost-effectiveness of targeted, fall prevention programs for the elderly. It is estimated that each year falls are responsible for costs of over $12 billion in the U.S., and the costs due to physical frailty are much higher. The news on Tai Chi is a reminder that relatively low tech approaches should not be overlooked in the search for ways to prevent disability and maintain physical performance in late life. The FICSIT studies have shown that a range of techniques, from the most sophisticated medical interventions to more low tech methods, can help older people avoid frailty and falling, says Chhanda Dutta, Ph.D., Director of Musculoskeletal Research in the NIAs Geriatrics Program. We must make sure that we look at every approach, ...
Multifactorial fall prevention programmes have recently been considered7-9 because falls are caused by complex risk factors such as disabilities and the caring environment. In the hospital setting it is very important to identify patients at a high risk for falling at admission to prevent the occurrence of falls. In the present study, age, a history of falling and the need for help with ADL were common risk factors for falls in both men and women, and it is suggested that it is important to obtain this information at admission. As falls are associated with restricted mobility,10 ADL are important for their prevention... Medications such as psychotropic and hypnotic drugs increase the risk of falls. Some researchers have warned that multi-medication including antidepressants are a risk factor for falls.11 ,12 Patients treated with psychotropic or hypnotic drugs therefore require special attention.. A retrospective study suggested that one of the independent risk factors for recurrent falls was a ...
Study findings published in The Lancet Neurology indicated that frailty makes older adults more susceptible to Alzheimers dementia and moderates the effects of Alzheimers disease-related brain changes on dementia symptoms. Frailty and Alzheimers dementia have many risk factors and clinical features in common, such as age, inflammation, functional impairment and atypical illness presentation, Lindsay M.K.

Researchers predict that the Coiv-19 pandemic will lead to a range of long-term mental health problems. They attest that the U.S is not fully ready to handle the wave of health problems caused by the global pandemic concurrently with the increased life expectancy. In order to face those challenges all health professions need to join forces and develop strategies to deliver appropriate care to individuals and empower global health community to care for the aging population (Vahia, 2020).. Response 2. As a senator preparing for this years policy agenda, it is imperative to address current social aging concerns. The following concerns will be the main focus of this years agenda, and are listed from highest to lowest priority: social isolation, mental health service gaps, fall prevention programs, and HIV/AIDS interventions. With the current covid-19 pandemic, social isolation amongst the elderly is of biggest concern as it impacting both physical and mental health. In a study completed by ...

BACKGROUND: Falls and fall-related injuries are a major public health concern, a financial challenge for health care providers, and critical issues for older adults. Poor balance and limited mobility are major risk factors for falls. OBJECTIVE: The p
By Dr Thijs Ackermans. Stair negotiation is one of the most hazardous daily tasks for older adults, often resulting in falls. Indeed, falls on stairs have been identified as the leading cause of accidental death and place a substantial financial burden on the National Health Service in the UK. Identifying the individuals at risk for a fall is necessary to deliver effective fall prevention interventions. However, presently there are no specific screening tools for stair fall prediction. It is questionable whether generic fall screening methods can identify older people at risk for falls on stairs, especially as stair negotiation is a complex and specific skill. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether stair fallers could be differentiated from non-stair-fallers by biomechanical risk factors or physical and psychological parameters included in existing fall screening methods. In addition, we aimed to identify the individuals with the highest stair fall risk using a novel multivariate ...

Method and device for fall prevention and detection, specifically for the elderly care based on digital image analysis using an intelligent optical sensor. The fall detection is divided into two main steps; finding the person on the floor, and examining the way in which the person ended up on the floor. When the first step indicates that the person is on the floor, data for a time period of a few seconds before and after the indication is analyzed in the second step. If this indicates a fall, a countdown state is initiated in order to reduce the risk of false alarms, before sending an alarm. The fall prevention is also divided into two main steps: identifying a person entering a bed; and identifying the person leaving the bed to end up standing beside it.
Optimal mobility is fundamental for healthy ageing and quality of life. This study is part of a cross-sectional population-based study of 85-year-old people residing in Linköping municipality, Sweden. The purpose was to describe 85-year-old peoples health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in relation to mobility and fall risk while adjusting for gender and body mass index. Data collection included a postal questionnaire, a home visit and a reception visit. HRQoL was assessed with EQ-5D-3L, mobility with the Timed Up and Go test (TUG) and fall risk with the Downton Fall Risk Index (DFRI). All those who completed the DFRI, TUG and EQ-5D-3L were included in the present study (N = 327). Lower HRQoL was associated with longer time taken to complete TUG and higher fall risk in both genders but not with body mass index. Women had higher risk of falling, took a longer time to complete TUG and reported less physical activity compared with men. Health-care professionals should address mobility capacity ...

Background: Falls are common in older adults and can result in serious injuries. Due to demographic changes, falls and related healthcare costs are likely to increase over the next years. Participation and motivation of older adults in fall prevention measures remain a challenge. The iStoppFalls project developed an information and communication technology (ICT)-based system for older adults to use at home in order to reduce common fall risk factors such as impaired balance and muscle weakness. The system aims at increasing older adults motivation to participate in ICT-based fall prevention measures. This article reports on usability, user-experience and user-acceptance aspects affecting the use of the iStoppFalls system by older adults. Methods: In the course of a 16-week international multicenter study, 153 community-dwelling older adults aged 65+ participated in the iStoppFalls randomized controlled trial, of which half used the system in their home to exercise and assess their risk of ...
World renowned researchers emphasize the critical need for clinicians to aggressively utilize a multi-pronged approach to reducing the risk of complications and premature death from type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Started cycling a month back and had been to some great rides. One of my dear friend / mentor recommended me to start cycling before my body asks for it. Since I am a workaholic and sit all day in front of PC, I bet not much muscles move other than my fingers and eye balls. Apparently, cycling is a good exercise and lets you keep your body fit and whenever I get time I do not miss my morning ride. As a beginner, I ride for 15-20 Kms in one go maintaining an average speed of 20kmh with a maximum of 25 Kilometre ride to my personal record.. Well, that was about my cycling experience which I probably would have wrote after a regular habit of cycling. But today I had my first fall from cycle and wanted to share my experience. I belong to punjab and apparently the roads here can be seen around potholes and I have been lucky enough to escape those potholes for the last 1 month to ride my way through. But today, I had encountered with one such pothole and unfortunately I applied front tyre break. ...
Daily life requires frequent estimations of the risk of falling and the ability to avoid a fall. The objective of this study was to explore older womens and mens understanding of fall risk and their experiences with safety precautions taken to prevent falls.A qualitative study with focus group discussions was conducted. Eighteen community-dwelling people [10 women and 8 men] with and without a history of falls were purposively recruited. Participants were divided into two groups, and each group met four times. A participatory and appreciative action and reflection approach was used to guide the discussions. All discussions were audio recorded and transcribed verbatim. Data were analysed by qualitative content analysis, and categories were determined inductively.Three categories describing the process of becoming aware of fall risks in everyday life were identified: 1] Facing various feelings, 2] Recognizing ones fall risk, and 3] Taking precautions. Each category comprised several ...
RESULTS: Nineteen of the 95 women sustained at least one fall during the six-month follow-up. Women with > 2 uncorrected risk factors had a significantly higher risk of falling than those with 0-2 risk factors; the odds ratio adjusted for four confounders was 4.58 (95%CI 1.472-4.250; P=0.009). Adherence to recommendations for fall prevention was negatively associated with fall risk. The adjusted odds ratio for a ten percent increase in adherence rate was 0.749 (95%CI 0.594-0.945; P=0.015 ...
There are a variety of steps that one can take to both prevent falls, and if a fall happens, be prepared to handle the situation in the most efficient manner.. 1. Make a Doctors Appointment - A fall prevention plan can be created with your doctor, or CareAparent, and can really help to clarify and increase awareness of fall risks specific to you, such as how any medication you take might increase the risk. Discuss previous falls and what you should do if they happen, as well as reviewing any health conditions you might have that can increase your risk.. 2. Keep Active - Keeping yourself mobile and physically active can help reduce the risk of falls exponentially, and, should you fall, can help reduce the risk of serious injury. Of course, aside from day-to-day mobility, you should get an ok from your doctor regarding physical exercise, but options such as swimming and water workouts for example are a great option for gentle yet thorough exercise. Your doctor may also suggest visiting a physical ...

Many of my elderly patients are unsteady. This article documents the possible benefits of foot orthotic devices as an important aspect of a Fall Prevention Program. Functional Foot Orthotic Devices can dramatically improve the surface area of contact of the bottom of the foot (bringing the ground up to meet the foot surface exactly) enhancing proprioception or balance. I have seen this daily in my private practice. But, it must be used with stable shoes, and the patient must look more stable and feel more stable. Sometimes, it appears more stable to me, but the patient senses some instability. Sometimes, the patient feels fine, but the shoe/orthotic combination looks unstable to me. So, functional foot orthotics must be evaluated shoe by shoe in a good Fall Prevention Program, but will be a valuable part of this program ...
Photo-elicitation interviews were used to better understand the factors that increased and decreased fall risk according to wheelchair users with chronic SCI. Findings from this study suggest that each wheelchair user had a unique set of fall risk factors based on an interaction of multiple fall risk factors within their specific situation, and their risk of falling was dynamic (ie, fall prevention needs change over time). When addressing a wheelchair users fall risk, the individualised, dynamic and complex nature of fall risk and their dynamic fall prevention needs should be considered. Participants also discussed priorities for fall prevention training, as well as multiple fall prevention strategies that they developed through their past experiences of falling.. Although individualised fall prevention approaches have been previously well supported and recommended for use with older adults,31 32 they have been less recognised for the SCI population. The need for individualised fall prevention ...
However, new funding from the Newfoundland and Labrador Healthy Aging Research Program may help reduce those statistics, at least in this province. Dr. Jeanette Byrne is receiving $16,620 for her study, Fall Prevention in Seniors in the Greater St. Johns Area: A Qualitative and Quantitative Examination of a Fall Prevention Program. With Dr. Michelle Ploughman from the Faculty of Medicine, shell identify the beliefs and experiences of seniors when it comes to fall risk and fall prevention, and examine whether a 10-week exercise and education program will result in reduction in fall risk and subsequent fall incidence compared to education alone.. Currently there are very few fall prevention initiatives in our province that target community dwelling seniors, explained Dr. Byrne. Hospitals and long-term care facilities in the province have targeted programs aimed at reducing fall risk, however healthy, active, community dwelling seniors are also at substantial risk for falls. Once falls occur ...
In this nursing home study, polypharmacy per se was not found to be a risk factor for fall-related injuries: injuries were associated with the use of multiple drugs (7 or more), but only when an injurious fall risk-increasing drug (antiarrhythmic or antiparkinson drug) was part of the patients therapeutic regimen. Multiple medications, or particular medication classes, were not clearly associated with injurious falls. Several literature reports support the hypothesis that these active principles can contribute to predisposing patients to falls. In particular, a meta-analysis study showed digoxin, type 1a antiarrhythmic and diuretic use to be associated with falls in older adults [5], while in another study, hip-fracture patients, compared with matched controls, were more frequently prescribed antiparkinson drugs [22]. Polypharmacy per se, arbitrarily defined as the use of four or more medications, was recently shown not to be an independent risk factor for falls in a population-based setting ...
In Sweden, injuries due to falls are the most common cause of injury-related hospitalization and injury-related death amongst elderly. Also, during the 20th century, increasing trends in fall-related injuries have been observed in many high-income countries. Whilst fall-related injury trends have been reported from national studies in other comparable countries, no studies from Sweden using national data have been published, despite this issue sometimes being pointed out as one of the most important emerging societal risks both in Sweden and elsewhere. With large individual and societal costs, as well as prognosticated continued increases in high-income countries, the aim of this thesis is to update the knowledge on the trends of fall-related injuries amongst elderly in Sweden and to determine whether the issue is still to be considered an emerging risk.. National injury morbidity and mortality data from Sweden can show that with regards to all hospitalized fall-related injuries as well as hip ...
Pretty much everyone knows at least one person who has fallen. The fall may have been purely accidental, such as a slip and fall, or the fall may have been related to dizziness. More than one in three people age 65 years or older fall each year. The risk of falling and thus fall-related injuries rises proportionally with age. Each year, more than 1.6 million elderly go to US emergency departments for fall-related injuries. Among older adults, falls are the number one cause of fractures, hospital admissions for trauma, and accidental injury deaths. Fractures caused by falls can lead to hospital stays and oftentimes to long term disability. With this comes loss of independence. Most often, fall-related fractures are at the arm, hand, ankle, spine, pelvis or hip. Hip fractures are amongst the most serious type of fall injury. They are a leading cause of loss of independence, particularly in the elderly. Only 50% of the elderly hospitalized for a broken hip return home or are capable of living on ...

Because nursing home residents are particularly at risk, nursing homes should implement a broad range of fall prevention strategies. However, not all fall incidents can be avoided and external hip protectors may contribute to prevent hip fractures. A major problem in studying the effectiveness of hip protectors is residents poor adherence. In nursing homes, adherence is dependent not only on the resident, but also on staff knowledge of and attitudes about hip ...

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by gaze palsy, bradykinesia, postural instability, and mild dementia. PSP is one of the most common parkinsonian disorders, second only to Parkinsons disease. Of primary concern to individuals with PSP are issues related to reduced mobility, particularly with regards to their increased frequency of falling backwards. Although medical treatment (predominantly pharmaceutical) has been found to be effective for improving some symptoms including slowness and rigidity, most of these interventions are only partially effective in maintaining and improving balance and gait. Mobility issues in PSP are, therefore, addressed primarily through fall prevention programs delivered by physical and occupational therapists. In this review article, we will provide an overview of the current literature that explores nonpharmacological methods for reducing fall risk among individuals living with PSP ...

N2 - Falls pose a serious threat to older people, since they may lead to severe injuries, reduced quality of life and increased health care costs. Every third person over 65 years old falls at least once each year, and the number of falls increases with age and frailty level. Falls are multifactorial by nature and a person can have several risk factors contributing to a fall. A variety of assessment scales have been developed for assessing fall risk factors and estimating the probability of future falls. These are typically administrated by a health care professional. However, selection of an assessment scale with high enough sensitivity and specificity and reasonable administration time can be difficult. The goal of this thesis was to develop new methods for fall risk assessment utilizing accelerometry-based movement ...

The aim of this study was to establish the inter-rater reliability of the Functional Balance test for Geriatric patients (FBG) and concurrent validity between the FBG and the Berg balance scale, and to present reference values for the FBG. Patients (n = 22) aged between 66 and 87 years with varying diagnoses and elderly subjects without balance problems (n = 145) were assessed. The inter-rater reliability, calculated with intraclass correlation (ICC2.1) for FBG total was 0.99. Cohens kappa coefficient (κ) varied between 0.83 and 0.94 for the four items in the FBG. The correlation between the total scores for FBG and the Berg balance scale, calculated with Spearmans rank correlation coefficient (rs) had a correlation of 0.96. The reference value for FBG total was 24 for men and woman aged 65-69 years, 23 for men and woman aged 70-79 years, 22 for men 80 years and older, and 21 for woman 80 years or older.. ...
Fear of falling is very common in older adults and can have a substantial impact on a persons quality of life, says Dr Kim Delbaere, the lead researcher behind the app.. Using the iconFES app will make assessing this fear and creating targeted fall prevention strategies easier for GPs and clinicians and more accessible to those at risk of falling, she says.. Many instruments are available to measure fear of falling in older adults, but iconFES is the first tool to use pictures to gauge the level of concern people have about falling during different daily situations.. Designed for use by clinicians and doctors, the app allows for quick and reliable assessments and means the results can be shared with patients immediately.. We hope that access to a quick and easy app like iconFES means that more GPs and clinicians will regularly assess fear of falling in older patients, says Dr Delbaere.. iconFES records accurate data essential for assessing fall risk and creating fall prevention ...
In the United States, an estimated 28.7% of adults aged 65 years or older fell in 2014.1 Falls result in increased morbidity, mortality, and health care costs.1,2 Risk factors for falls include age, medication use, poor balance, and chronic conditions (ie, depression, diabetes).1 Fall prevention strategies are typically recommended for adults older than 65 years. In several European countries, an increase in mortality from falls has been observed since 2000, particularly among adults older than 75 years.3,4 This age group has the highest fall risk and potential for cost-effective interventions. We report trends in mortality from falls for the US population aged 75 years or older from 2000 to 2016. ...
Background: the STOPP criteria advise against the use of long-acting benzodiazepines (LBs). Objective: to study whether LBs are associated with a higher fall risk than short-acting benzodiazepines (SBs) (elimination half-life ≤10 h). Methods: we used base-line data and prospective fall follow-up from the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam, a longitudinal cohort study including 1,509 community-dwelling older persons (Study 1) and from a separate fall prevention study with 564 older persons after a fall (Study 2). Time to the first fall after inclusion and number of falls in the first year after inclusion were the primary endpoints. Results: both in Study 1 and Study 2 the use of SBs was associated with time to the first fall, hazard ratio (HR) 1.62 (95% CI: 1.03-2.56) and HR 1.64 (95% CI: 1.19-2.26),respectively. LBs were not significantly associated with time to first fall, HR 1.40 (0.85-2.31) and HR 1.08 (0.72-1.62). In both studies, the use of SBs was also associated with number of falls, ...

Fear of falling confines many seniors to the house. Professional caregivers help them remain active and engaged in the community.
Virtual time to contact (VTC) is a measure of postural stability that estimates the virtual time it would take to reach an individuals stability boundary. This study aimed to validate VTC as measured by a depth sensor and determine whether VTC from the depth sensor distinguishes between older adult fallers and nonfallers compared with a force platform. VTC was assessed in 10 young and 20 older adults by having participants lean in a circular direction followed by 5 balance tests: eyes open, dual task, eyes open foam, eyes closed, and eyes closed foam. Spearman rank correlations and Bland-Altman plots were conducted to determine validity, and receiver operating characteristic curves were constructed to discriminate between fallers and nonfallers. Significant correlations were found in the dual task (P = .03), eyes open foam (P , .01), and eyes closed foam conditions (P = .05). The depth sensor discriminated between fallers and nonfallers in the eyes open (P = .02), dual task (P = .03), and eyes ...
Falls are the key causes of fatal injuries and are the most common cause of hospital admissions among senior citizens. One in four Americans age 65 and over fall each year, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in an emergency room for a fall. Further, a recent review of ambulance calls to Saddleback Medical Center involving Village Residents during the past four months revealed that 50% were the result of a fall. The Foundation of Laguna Woods Village has partnered with the Social Services Division and MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center to implement a fall-prevention program designed to increase Resident awareness and the availability of fall-prevention services. Classes will focus on fall prevention topics, including sit-to-stand instruction, dynamic standing exercises, fall recovery and more.

Authors: Power, Valerie , Van De Ven, Pepijn , Nelson, John , Clifford, Amanda M. Article Type: Research Article Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Falls among community-dwelling older adults are a common yet often preventable occurrence. Clinicians frequently use task-based assessment tools to evaluate clients balance and mobility with the aim of predicting falls and providing targeted fall prevention interventions, but no consensus exists on the optimum tool(s) to use for this purpose. This review aims to identify the task-based assessment tools that can best predict falls among community-dwelling older adults. METHODS: Online databases Academic Search Complete, AMED, Biomedical Reference Collection: Expanded, CINAHL Plus, MEDLINE, General Science, and SPORTDiscus were searched from 1983 to 2013 to identify prospective studies assessing the performance of …specific tasks in order to predict falls. Following screening, the methodological quality of studies included for review was appraised using a ...
Background Falls are one of the major health problems in adults with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Interventions, such as the Otago Exercise Programme (OEP), can reduce falls in community dwelling adults by up to 35%. The cost-benefits of such a programme in adults with RA have not been studied Objectives To determine healthcare cost of falls in adults with RA, and estimate whether it may be cost efficient to roll out the OEP to improve function and prevent falls in adults living with RA. Methods Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis aged ≥18 years were recruited from four rheumatology clinics across the Northwest of England. Participants were followed up for 1 year with monthly fall calendars, telephone calls and self-report questionnaires. Estimated medical cost of a fall-related injury incurred per-person were calculated and compared with OEP implemention costs to establish potential economic benefits. Results 535 patients were recruited and 598 falls were reported by 195 patients. Cumulative ...
The present study based on a nationally representative sample of older adults living in the Andes mountains and coastal region of the country indicates that 34.7% of older adults had fallen in the previous year in Ecuador. Among fallers, 30.6% reported a fall-related injury. The prevalence of falls was higher in women and among older adults residing in the rural Andes mountains. In the multivariate model, women, subjects with cognitive impairment, those reporting urinary incontinence, and those being physically active during the previous year were variables found independently associated with increased risk of falling among older adults in Ecuador. Moreover, a gradual and linear increase in the prevalence of falls was seen as the number of risk factors increased. Falls represent a major public health problem among older adults in Ecuador. The present findings may assist public health authorities to implement programs of awareness and fall prevention among older adults at higher risk of falls.
Some 50,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with Parkinsons disease (PD) every year. The American Institute of Neurology estimates there are one million people affected with this neurodegenerative disorder, with 60 years as average age of onset. Falls and fall-related injuries are a major issue for people with Parkinsons. Up to 70 percent of advanced PD patients fall at least once a year and two-thirds suffer recurring falls. These fall rates are twice as high as those of adults of comparable age, so improving balance in patients with Parkinsons would provide a major health advantage. Sunil Agrawal, professor of mechanical engineering and of rehabilitation and regenerative medicine at Columbia Engineering, along with Dario Martelli, a post-doctoral researcher in his group, have been working on this issue with Movement Disorders faculty from the department of neurology at Columbia University Medical Center. Stanley Fahn, a leading expert in Parkinsons, and Un Jung Kang, division director, ...
Metabolic abnormalities, including hyperglycemia, obesity, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, are frequently present inpatients with type 2 diabetes and are risk factors for both microvascular and macrovascular disease. The risk is further increased in patients with microalbuminuria. Clinical trial evidence has shown that reducing plasma glucose levels, blood pressure, or both slows the development or progression of microvascular complications. Individual trials have focused on 1 or, at most, 2 interventions. However, in routine clinical practice, multifactorial interventions are often needed to improve the many possible metabolic derangements. Gaede and colleagues study shows the benefits of intensively managing type 2 diabetes. A major strength of the study is its pragmatic design that compares multifactorial interventions (similar to those recommended by the American Diabetes Association) in a diabetes center with routine care by primary care providers. An impressive reduction in the ...
Among persons 65 years and older, injuries related to falls are the main cause of injury deaths and disabilities. The most serious fall injury is hip fracture. In 1996, 340,000 hospitalizations for hip fracture occurred among persons 65 years and older, and 80 percent of these patients were women. About 50 percent of older adults hospitalized for hip fracture never regain their previous level of function. A report on the incidence and prevention of hip fracture resulting from falls appears in the March 31, 2000 issue of the reports and recommendations series of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).. About 95 percent of hip fractures are caused by falls. Risk factors for hip fracture resulting from falls among older women include increasing age, muscle weakness, functional limitations (e.g., difficulty with daily activities such as bathing or dressing), environmental hazards, cognitive impairment or dementia, use of psychoactive medications, a history of falls, lack of current or previous ...
In conclusion, denosumab may reduce the risk of falls in addition to its established fracture risk reduction by reducing bone resorption and increasing bone mass.

youre in an upright unsupported position, you fall.. I loved this answer because she was sort of admitting that most falls could be prevented. So why do they happen so often?. According to CDC, Each year, an average nursing home with 100 beds reports 100 to 200 falls.. About 1,800 older adults living in nursing homes die each year from fall-related injuries. Those who experience non-fatal falls can suffer injuries, have difficulty getting around and have a reduced quality of life.. WOW. Those are scary statistics.. Why do falls occur more often in nursing homes?. According to CDC, Muscle weakness and walking or gait problems are the most common causes of falls among nursing home residents. These problems account for about 24% of the falls in nursing homes. Environmental hazards in nursing homes cause 16% to 27% of falls among residents. Such hazards include wet floors, poor lighting, incorrect bed height, and improperly fitted or maintained wheelchairs. Medications can increase the risk of ...

Falling is a major cause of injury among older adults, contributing to fear, loss of independence and billions of dollars in healthcare costs, according to several studies. For glaucoma patients specifically, contrast sensitivity and visual field loss can decrease hazard perception. Falls are most likely to occur at home, but on the bright side, the home is a modifiable environment.. Researchers recently evaluated home hazards and lighting levels in association with fall rates among older adults with glaucoma and found that with better lighting, fewer falls occurred.. The study included 170 individuals diagnosed with glaucoma or suspected glaucoma. The participants provided three years of prospective fall data in monthly diaries and filled out information about specific fall locations in post-fall phone questionnaires. The researchers evaluated seven home areas for hazards and lighting during in-home assessments and analyzed the influences of such hazards on fall rates. Data were adjusted for ...
About 20 percent more emergency department visits by older patients would be attributed to falls if hospital screening took into account patients chief complaint in addition to diagnosis codes, an AHRQ-funded study concluded. An analysis of electronic health records at an academic medical center during a 33-month study period identified about 4,400 fall-related visits among people 65 or older. More than 850 of those were not classified as fall related, however, because visits were recorded with ICD-9 codes alone. Those patients whose visits were not classified as fall related were less likely to be admitted but were associated with higher baseline comorbidity, which suggests that defining falls based only on coding underestimates the true burden of falls. Including patients chief complaint along with diagnosis codes will help identify more people in the ED who have fallen, which will help guide future research and policy, as well as provide clinical care for the most at-risk population, ...
