The majority of fractures among elderly people originate from two causes, the increased risk of fall, and bone fragility. Many individual-related risk factors for fall-related fractures have been identified (e.g. female sex, advanced age, low bone mass density, presence of chronic medical conditions, gait and balance problems, overweight, smoking, living alone). Further studies have investigated environmental risk factors associated with occurrence of fall-related fractures among elderly people. Identification of the latter is important for development of cost-effective environmental-oriented risk-reduction strategies (i). We performed a study to identify which factors in physical environmental appear associated with occurrence of fall-related fractures in home among the community dwelling elderly people.
