The Challenge of Falls in the Elderly

(1) One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.

(2) Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.

(3) Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.

(4) Falls result in more than 2.8 million injuries treated in emergency departments annually, including over 800,000 hospitalizations and more than 27,000 deaths.

(5) In 2015, the total cost of fall injuries was $50 billion. Medicare and Medicaid shouldered 75% of these costs.

(6) The financial toll for older adult falls is expected to increase as the population ages and may reach $67.7 billion by 2020.

According to the repot from www.cdc.gov                    

Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor.

If you or the Doctor want to know when and how many times the elderly falls recently, Our TM-V42 Fall Detector Alarm  will meet this kind demands.
