Abstract

Falls are a major societal problem and emerging technologies provide solutions for preventing falls. Reasons for falls are multifactorial and ICT-based interventions take various risk factors into account. In this population study people over 65 years with malnutrition according to MNA were 71% more likely to have fallen during the preceding three months period.
