Demographics and Falls
It is well known that the populations in the U.S. and abroad are aging. The costs associated with falls-related injuries are already high, at over $20B per year in the U.S. alone.
These costs will more than double by 2020, and are projected reach $240B by 2040. At the same time, Medicare and Medicaid no longer cover the costs associated with falls-related injuries. The solution is SorbaSHOCK™.
