Samenvatting

Nationale en internationale cijfers tonen aan dat 1 op 3 thuiswonende 65-plussers en nagenoeg de helft van de 80-plussers minstens eenmaal per jaar valt. Bij ongeveer 40% van hen resulteert dit in een letsel.1-4 Ongeveer 10% van de valpartijen bij ouderen leidt tot ernstige letsels, waaronder heupfracturen (1-2%), andere fracturen (3-5%) en letsels van de weke delen en hoofdtrauma (5%).1,3-5
