Prevalence and risk factors for falls in older men and women: The English Longitudinal Study of Ageing. falls are a major cause of disability and death in older people. Women are more likely to fall than men, but little is known about whether risk factors for falls differ between the sexes. We used data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing to investigate the prevalence of falls by sex and to examine cross-sectionally sex-specific associations between a range of potential risk factors

106. Estimating the Upper Limit of Lifetime Probability Distribution, Based on Data of Japanese Centenarians. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Estimating the Upper Limit of Lifetime Probability Distribution, Based on Data of Japanese Centenarians. In modern biology, theories of aging fall mainly into two groups: damage theories and programed theories. If programed theories are true, the probability that human beings live beyond a specific age will be zero. In contrast, if damage theories are true, such an age does not exist, and a longevity record will be eventually destroyed. In this article, for examining real state, a special type

Use of a physiological profile to document motor impairment in ageing and in clinical groups Ageing decreases exercise performance and is frequently accompanied by reductions in cognitive performance. Deterioration in the physiological capacity to stand, locomote and exercise can manifest itself as falling over and represents a significant deterioration in sensorimotor control. In the elderly, falling leads to serious morbidity and mortality with major societal costs. Measurement of a suite

110. Frequency of ED revisits and death among older adults after a fall. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Frequency of ED revisits and death among older adults after a fall. Falls among older adults (aged ≥65 years) are the leading cause of both injury deaths and emergency department (ED) visits for trauma. We examine the characteristics and prevalence of older adult ED fallers as well as the recurrent ED visit and mortality rate.This was a retrospective analysis of a cohort of elderly fall patients who presented to the ED between 2005 and 2011 of 2 urban, level 1 trauma, teaching hospitals

111. Stand by me! Reducing the risk of injurious falls in older adults. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Stand by me! Reducing the risk of injurious falls in older adults. About one-third of community-dwelling adults age 65 and older fall each year, and some suffer fractures, traumatic brain injury, and even death. Therefore, it is important to identify older adults at risk and recommend helpful interventions. Copyright © 2015 Cleveland Clinic.

112. FRAX (Aus) and falls risk: Association in men and women. (Abstract)

factors were documented for 735 men and 602 women (age 40-90 yr) assessed at follow-up (2006-2010 and 2000-2003, respectively) of the Geelong Osteoporosis Study. FRAX scores with and without BMD were calculated. A falls risk score was determined at the time of BMD assessment and self-reported incident falls were documented from questionnaires returned one year later. Multivariable analyses were performed to determine: (i) cross-sectional association between FRAX scores and falls risk score (Elderly (...) Falls Screening Test, EFST) and (ii) prospective relationship between FRAX and time to a fall.There was an association between FRAX (hip with BMD) and EFST scores (β = 0.07, p < 0.001). After adjustment for sex and age, the relationship became non-significant (β = 0.00, p = 0.79). The risk of incident falls increased with increasing FRAX (hip with BMD) score (unadjusted HR 1.04, 95% CI 1.02, 1.07). After adjustment for age and sex, the relationship became non-significant (1.01, 95% CI 0.97, 1.05

113. Hyponatremia as a fall predictor in a geriatric trauma population. (Abstract)

Hyponatremia as a fall predictor in a geriatric trauma population. Approximately one in three older adults fall each year, resulting in a significant proportion of geriatric traumatic injuries. In a hospital with a focus on geriatric fall prevention, we sought to characterize this population to develop targeted interventions. As mild hyponatremia, defined as a serum sodium <135meq/L, has been reported to be associated with falls, unsteadiness and attention deficits, we hypothesized (...) for a fall than non-hyponatremic patients, when adjusting for age, neurological disorder, and hematologic disorder. Consequently, hyponatremia identification and management should be an integral part of any geriatric trauma fall prevention programme. Additionally, if hyponatremia is found during a geriatric fall workup, it should be corrected prior to discharge and closely monitored by a primary care physician to prevent recurrent episodes of falls.Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

Falls during the prior year were documented via self-report, and for men, falls risk score was obtained using an Elderly Fall Screening Test (EFST). Sleepiness was assessed using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), and scores of  ≥ 10 indicated EDS. Differences among those with and without EDS in regard

Clinical impact of gait training enhanced with visual kinematic biofeedback: Patients with Parkinson's disease and Patients stable post stroke(☆). As the world's population ages, falls, physical inactivity, decreased attention and impairments in balance and gait arise as a consequence of decreased sensation, weakness, trauma and degenerative disease. Progressive balance and gait training can facilitate postural righting, safe ambulation and community participation. This small randomized

leads to a restriction of their mobility. When the phobia of falling occurs, the fear of falling down takes an excessive scope, it is associated with anxious reactions when seniors dread the risk, and leads them to avoid these situations reducing their mobility. This reduction of activities contributes to the premature decline of physical capacities, worsens social life, increases the falling and institutionalization risk. However, there is no specific tools for the detection of seniors falling

that this activity may reflect a demand for stability of the body in order to carry out the motor task. This study has successfully demonstrated the frontal cortex’s role in maintaining gait, particularly when concerned with a secondary task. Why is this important? Although gait disturbances are extremely rare in young people, their prevalence increases with age. fall at least once a year, with the incidence rate climbing to 50% in the over-85 population.

119. Pathogenesis and treatment of falls in elderly Full Text available with Trip Pro

Pathogenesis and treatment of falls in elderly Falls in the elderly are a public health problem. Consequences of falls are increased risk of hospitalization, which results in an increase in health care costs. It is estimated that 33% of individuals older than 65 years undergoes falls. Causes of falls can be distinguished in intrinsic and extrinsic predisposing conditions. The intrinsic causes can be divided into age-related physiological changes and pathological predisposing conditions. The age

from medical conditions (all P < 0.0001). Injuries to the head (P < 0.0001) and to the lower extremity (P < 0.019) occurred predominantly in the older population. Age was the sole predictor for recurrent falls (OR 1.2, P < 0.0001).Falls at home are the main class of falls for all age groups, particularly in the elderly. Fall prevention strategies must therefore target activities of daily living. Even though falls related to sports mostly take place in the younger cohort, a significant percentage
