fall prevention with grab bars

According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of injury among adults aged ≥65 years, who in 2014 experienced an estimated 29 million falls, resulting in 7 million fall-related injuries. In 2018, 27.5% of adults aged ≥65 years reported at least one fall in the past year (35.6 million falls).
