In a nutshell: Despite over 10,000 publications since 1990, fall injury rates in older people are still increasing over and above population ageing. This paper investigated the hypothesis that falls are a complex multi-systems medical problem, and a paradigm shift in statistical methods is required before fall injuries can be substantially reduced. It introduces a bottom-up supervised subspace clustering approach as an alternative to conventional approaches to statistical collection.
