Nearly half of people over 65 have a fall, and around 400,000 people over the age of 75 will have to go to hospital as a result of a fall every year, with costs to UK healthcare services estimated at £2billion a year. Many elderly people who have suffered a fall are worried about further injury and therefore stop or limit physical activities that otherwise might help them regain confidence and their original quality of life.
