Why is this important?

The most serious fall-related injury is hip fracture. Approximately 212,000 hip fractures occur each year in the United States among adults aged 65 years and older; 75 to 80 percent of all hip fractures are sustained by females. The impact of these injuries on the quality of life is enormous. Half of all elderly adults hospitalized for hip fracture cannot return home or live independently after the fracture. Interventions that reduce the risk of seniors falling will yield significant public health benefits.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the hospitalization rate due to hip fractures among females aged 65 and older to 741.2 hospitalizations per 100,000 population.
