What is a mechanical fall?


According to the University of Minnesota Medical Center, mechanical falls occur when people trip, slip or lose their balance. Mechanical falls are contrasted with falls caused by fainting or seizures.

The Medical Center recommends taking several steps in order to help prevent mechanical falls. For example, non-slip pads should be placed under rugs. The floor areas where people walk should be kept clear of obstructions. Sturdy ladders, not chairs, should be used to reach high shelves. The soles of shoes should not be slippery. Care should be taken when travelling on uneven sidewalks. In addition, if a person has balance problems, a cane or walker should be used.
