According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in every 3 adults 65 and older will experience a fall.  Among those adults who are 65 years and older, falls are the leading cause of injury death.  In 2007, over 18,000 older adults died from unintentional falls and traumatic brain injuries accounted for 46% of these fatalities.  In 2006, there were 316,000 hospital admissions for hip fractures in people age 65 and older and over 90% of the hip fractures were caused by falling.
