81. Feature selection for elderly faller classification based on wearable sensors Full Text available with Trip Pro

Feature selection for elderly faller classification based on wearable sensors Wearable sensors can be used to derive numerous gait pattern features for elderly fall risk and faller classification; however, an appropriate feature set is required to avoid high computational costs and the inclusion of irrelevant features. The objectives of this study were to identify and evaluate smaller feature sets for faller classification from large feature sets derived from wearable accelerometer

82. Home Camera-Based Fall Detection System for the Elderly Full Text available with Trip Pro

Home Camera-Based Fall Detection System for the Elderly Falls are the leading cause of injury and death in elderly individuals. Unfortunately, fall detectors are typically based on wearable devices, and the elderly often forget to wear them. In addition, fall detectors based on artificial vision are not yet available on the market. In this paper, we present a new low-cost fall detector for smart homes based on artificial vision algorithms. Our detector combines several algorithms (background

Background Population ageing and the increased tendency to fall with age, present a major challenge to health care providers and health systems as well as for older people and their carers.

the fracture risk of a fall. According to the Centers for Disease Control, almost 30 percent of older Americans fall per year and 38 percent of those that fell reported a fall that limited activity or led to a doctor’s visit. For those over 65 years of age, falls were the most frequent cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries with 27,000 deaths and 2.8 million ER visits along with 800,000 hospitalizations. Not surprisingly, the percentage of individuals that fell rose with increasing age as did the percentage

The key distinguishing characteristic between mild cognitive impairment and dementia is whether the decline is starting to interfere with essential daily functioning. In a billionaire typically surrounded by assistants, who is now the president , whether Trump can perform his necessary daily tasks on his own may be difficult to assess. The symptoms

91. Fatal river drowning: the identification of research gaps through a systematic literature review Full Text available with Trip Pro

on epidemiology, risk factors and prevention strategies for river drowning.Twenty-nine papers were deemed relevant to the study design including 21 (72.4%) on epidemiology, 18 (62.1%) on risk factors and 10 (34.5%) that proposed strategies for prevention. Risk factors identified included age, falls into water, swimming, using watercraft, sex and alcohol.Gaps were identified in the published literature. These included a lack of an agreed definition for rivers, rates for fatal river drowning (however, crude

92. Falls in the Elderly Secondary to Urinary Symptoms Full Text available with Trip Pro

Falls in the Elderly Secondary to Urinary Symptoms Falls and fractures have a significant impact on our patients, their families, and caregivers, and cost the health care system billions of dollars. Each year, millions of adults aged 65 and older fall. Falls can cause moderate to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas, and can increase the risk of early death. Fortunately, falls are a public health problem that is largely preventable. Because many patients with falls

94. Sex Differences in Fear of Falling among Older Adults with Low Grip Strength Full Text available with Trip Pro

strength, activities of daily living, cognitive function, depressive symptoms, and fear of falling were assessed. Multiple regression analysis was performed by a simultaneous data entry method.Fear of falling was greater in older women with low grip strength than in their male equivalents (P<0.001). Regression analysis showed that age, fall experience within the previous 2 yr, activities of daily living, and depressive symptoms collectively accounted for 15.3% (P<0.001) of the variance among men (...) . Meanwhile, age, fall experience within the previous 2 yr, grip strength, activities of daily living, and depressive symptoms collectively accounted for 13.4% (P<0.001) of the variance among women.Thus, the predictors of fear of falling differ between older men and women with low grip strength. Therefore, sex differences must be considered when developing intervention strategies for reducing fear of falling in this demographic.

95. Relationship Between Difficulties in Daily Activities and Falling: Loco-Check as a Self-Assessment of Fall Risk Full Text available with Trip Pro

Relationship Between Difficulties in Daily Activities and Falling: Loco-Check as a Self-Assessment of Fall Risk People aged 65 years or older accounted for 25.1% of the Japanese population in 2013, and this characterizes the country as a "super-aging society." With increased aging, fall-related injuries are becoming important in Japan, because such injuries underlie the necessity for nursing care services. If people could evaluate their risk of falling using a simple self-check test, they would

between left and right limbs. A similar phenomenon was also observed for MT. There were significant differences between fallers and nonfallers in maximum isokinetic torque at knee and ankle joints. The correct rate of PMT was higher than other variables, such as MT and maximal isokinetic torque, in evaluating elderly fall risk by using logistic regression analyses. The results suggest that PMT in the choice step reaction test could be a useful parameter to assess risk of fall among elder adults

97. Developing Methods of Repurposing Electronic Health Record Data for Identification of Older Adults at Risk of Unintentional Falls Full Text available with Trip Pro

Developing Methods of Repurposing Electronic Health Record Data for Identification of Older Adults at Risk of Unintentional Falls Nationally, nearly 40 percent of community-dwelling adults age 65 and older fall at least once a year, making unintentional falls the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries among this age group. Addressing this public health problem in primary care offers promise. However, challenges in incorporating fall risk screening into primary care result

98. The Effect of Exercise Intervention on the Community's Older Adults

Gung Memorial Hospital Study Details Study Description Go to Brief Summary: Osteoporosis is a serious global health problem, second only to cardiovascular disease. Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease in the elderly population, characterized by loss of bone mineral density (BMD) and continuous destruction of bone microstructure, especially in postmenopausal women. It gives rise to bone fragility and fracture risk. Moreover, as people grow older, falls frequently occur with high (...) severity, and nearly 35% to 45% of persons aged 65 or older fall at least once a year. Osteoporotic fractures increase mortality, morbidity, chronic pain, and the cost of social care and it decreases the quality of life. Here, investigators plan to perform different exercise interventions such as circuit exercise, aerobic dance and Tai Chi on the community's older adults to evaluate whether exercise intervention could improve the bone mineral density, physical fitness, muscle strength or quality

99. Anxiety disorders and falls among older adults. Full Text available with Trip Pro

history of anxiety disorders was determined. Falls were determined by self-report. In men, a falls-risk score (Elderly Falls Screening Test (EFST)) was also calculated.Among fallers, 24 of 299 (8.0%) had a lifetime history of anxiety disorder compared to 36 of 634 (5.7%) non-fallers (p=0.014). Examination of the association between anxiety and falls suggested differential relationships for men and women. In men, following adjustment for psychotropic medications, mobility and blood pressure, lifetime

standardization of photography in clinical practice, forensics, or research have not been published. In preparation for a study of injury patterns in elder abuse and geriatric falls, our goal was to develop and evaluate a protocol for standardized photography of injuries that may be broadly applied.We conducted a literature review for techniques and standards in medical, forensic, and legal photography. We developed a novel protocol describing types of photographs and body positioning for eight body regions
