It is estimated that between 20% and 30% of seniors fall each year. Research suggests that falls are the direct cause of 95% of all hip fractures. In 2004, the direct costs associated with falls among seniors in Canada were estimated at over $2 billion. The cost of falls for Canadian seniors (per capita) was 3.7 times greater than that for individuals between the ages of 25 and 64 years.
