According to the National Floor Safety Institute, falls account for over eight million hospital emergency room visits per year and are the leading cause of visits. But how do you know if the injuries claimed could have actually resulted from that STF event?
In his most recent article in the Fall issue of SIU Today Magazine, ARCCA Expert Dr. Andy Rentschler explains how biomechanists can provide different avenues of investigation to help determine how or if a fall event actually happened and what the subsequent injuries truly are.
