Falls are a major concern in the aging population, often leading to severe injuries such as fractures and head traumas and significantly impacting independence and quality of life. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, falls are Australia’s leading cause of injury hospitalisation and death, representing 43% of injury hospitalisations and 42% of injury deaths.


Falls requiring hospitalisation occur more frequently in adults with increasing age and are most likely to occur in the home.
