Yli tuhat ikäihmistä kuolee kaatumisiin

Yli 75-vuotiaiden kaatumiset ovat yleisiä, joka kolmas ikäihminen kaatuu vähintään kerran vuodessa ja heikkokuntoisista vuosittain kaatuu joka toinen.

Fyysisen toimintakyvyn yhteys kaatumisriskiin on selvä: Mitä paremmassa fyysisessä kunnossa 75 vuotta täyttänyt henkilö on ja mitä enemmän hän liikkuu, sitä epätodennäköisempää kaatuminen on.

Terveyden ja hyvinvoinnin laitoksen julkaisemista Alueellisen terveys- ja hyvinvointitutkimuksen tuloksista ilmenee, että lähes puolet yli 75-vuotiaiden kaatumisista aiheuttaa vamman, joka tarvitsee jonkinasteista hoitoa. Suomessa kuolee vuosittain yli tuhat ikäihmistä kaatumisen seurauksena, noin 7 000 saa lonkkamurtuman ja kymmenet tuhannet eriasteisia hoitoa vaativia vammoja. Kaatuminen voi lisätä myös kaatumispelkoa, jolloin ikäihminen vähentää liikkumistaan, mikä puolestaan heikentää toimintakykyä – ja lisää kaatumisvaaraa.

Tämä kierre on mahdollista katkaista erilaisilla käytännön toimenpiteillä kuten yleisellä fyysisellä aktiivisuudella ja erityisesti monipuolisella tasapaino- ja voimaharjoittelulla. Varhainen kaatumisvaaran tunnistaminen auttaa kaatumisten ehkäisemisessä ja edistää ikäihmisten hyvinvointia sekä itsenäistä kotona selviytymistä. Se myös vähentää terveydenhuollon kustannuksia.

Monipuolisten liikuntapalvelujen tarjonta onkin tärkeää ja niiden järjestämisessä tarvitaan julkisen sektorin lisäksi myös järjestöjä.
