HEALTHY AGING: Study examines relationship between vision and muscle steadiness with age

(Mar. 12, 2012)   —   One out of every three adults aged 65 and older will fall this year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those seniors who fall, 20 to 30 percent will suffer injuries that will shorten their life span or negatively affect their quality of life.

East Carolina University researchers are working to improve those statistics through a project under way in the College of Health and Human Performance.
