confusion and use of certain medications are associated with falls in the elderly. Addressing these risk factors can be expected to reduce rates of falling. Targeted fall risk assessments are the most effective preventive procedures, and include a plethora of assessment instruments that have been developed and designed for different purposes over the decades. Strategies for control of elderly falls have been established differently, taking into account the complex physiological and pathological

187. Effects of aging on the cerebrovascular orthostatic response. (Abstract)

Effects of aging on the cerebrovascular orthostatic response. When healthy subjects stand up, it is associated with a reduction in cerebral blood velocity and oxygenation although cerebral autoregulation would be considered to prevent a decrease in cerebral perfusion. Aging is associated with a higher incidence of falls, and in the elderly falls may occur particularly during the adaptation to postural change. This study evaluated the cerebrovascular adaptation to postural change in 15 healthy

in older people. University of York. Effective Health Care 2(4). 1996 Authors' objectives This reviews provides a summary of the research evidence on the prevention of falls and subsequent injury in older people. Authors' conclusions The risk of falls increases with age. Falls in older people often result in injury and death. Such injuries, frequently fractures, are a common and costly cause of hospital admission. There is some evidence to suggest that exercise, such as balance training, is effective

Condition or disease Accidental Falls Detailed Description: Falls are one of the most significant health risks to older Americans. In the U.S., 30-60% of community dwelling elders will fall each year.Studies have found rates of serious injury among elders who fall to range from 5-24%.

The effect of Tai Chi Chuan in reducing falls among elderly people: design of a randomized clinical trial in the Netherlands [ISRCTN98840266]. Falls are a significant public health problem. Thirty to fifty percent of the elderly of 65 years and older fall each year. Falls are the most common type of accident in this age group and can result in fractures and subsequent disabilities, increased fear of falling, social isolation, decreased mobility, and even an increased mortality.

A five-week exercise program can reduce falls and improve obstacle avoidance in the elderly. Falls in the elderly are a major health problem. Although exercise programs have been shown to reduce the risk of falls, the optimal exercise components, as well as the working mechanisms that underlie the effectiveness of these programs, have not yet been established.To test whether the Nijmegen Falls Prevention Program was effective in reducing falls and improving standing balance, balance confidence

Prevention of fall incidents in patients with a high risk of falling: design of a randomised controlled trial with an economic evaluation of the effect of multidisciplinary transmural care. Annually, about 30% of the persons of 65 years and older falls at least once and 15% falls at least twice. Falls often result in serious injuries, such as fractures. Therefore, the prevention of accidental falls is necessary. The aim is to describe the design of a study that evaluates the efficacy and cost

Dual-task-related gait changes in transitionally frail older adults: the type of the walking-associated cognitive task matters. Changes in gait patterns due to a simultaneously performed cognitive task have been reported previously and associated with an increased falling risk among older adults. Little is known whether the type of cognitive task performed while walking is important concerning possible gait interference in older fall-prone individuals.To quantify and compare the effects of two

200. The genetic epidemiology of joint hypermobility: a population study of female twins. Full Text available with Trip Pro

' Adult Twin Registry in the UK.The overall prevalence of hypermobility was 19.5% in MZ twins and 22.1% in DZ twins. The prevalence of hypermobile joints declined with age, falling from 34% in subjects ages 20-30 years to 18.4% in those ages 60 years or older. Significantly greater concordance for joint hypermobility was observed in the MZ twins when compared with the DZ twins (60% versus 36%), consistent with a genetic influence. In variance components analysis, the age- and body mass index-adjusted
