• Falls are the second most common symptom at the A&E department in hospitals of Singapore. The elderly makes up a large number of victims being admitted after a fall, as they are more prone to injure themselves when they fall. (Source: Singapore Medical Journal). The frequency of fall increases with age, due to age-related physiological changes – slower reaction time, increased body sway and impairment of righting reflexes.
• Majority of falls occurred in the day and indoors, usually at home. (Source: Singapore Medical Journal)
• After a fall, 90% of the people who get help within one hour will continue to live independently, but after 12 hours without any aid, only 10% of the people can continue to live at home. (Source: New England Journal of Medicine)
• Nearly one half of the senior citizens who incur a serious injury never fully recover and many lose their ability to function independently for the rest of their lives. (Source: Yale University School of Medicine)
