These risks can range from burns and cuts to broken bones and toxic exposures.

Preventing a stumble from turning into a fall depends as much on luck as it does on preparation. Falls can be deadly for the elderly and people with prior serious injuries. A study is examining the factors that convert a stumble into a fall to better understand how elder care facilities can be designed to mitigate these risks.
