Why is falls prevention important?

Did you know that 1 out of 3 elderly people living at home falls once a year? Although a fall may seem harmless, it can have serious consequences such as a fracture. Did you also know that balance, mobility and physical strength are strong protective factors in limiting the risk of falling? Despite the possibility of preventive physical therapy, this is not yet sufficiently used in Belgium. Moreover, it is useful to identify other factors that can influence the risk of falling during a comprehensive examination and to make sure you can stay active safely.
