In a nutshell: This analysis drew information from a randomised controlled trail as well as wider literature, and looked into the cost-effectiveness of installing shock-absorbing floors into hospitals for older people. Initial results show such floors can be cost-effective in reducing falls injuries, but further research is needed to deduce whether the floors cause a higher fall rate.
