    Abstract

    Falls in elderly are the leading cause of injury. A fall can result in serious injuries leading to loss of independence, hospitalization, increased medical costs, and a greater economic burden. Therefore, the development and implementation of effective strategies to prevent falls in elderly is a vital challenge for the health society.
