Slips and Trips are the two leading causes of falls. These events can be defined as follows. Slips occur when there is too little friction or traction between your footwear and a walking surface resulting in an unintentional slide. Trips occur when your foot or lower leg collides with an object, or incorrectly adjusts to a step downward causing you to stumble or fall. Falls occur when a slip, trip, or other event causes you to lose your balance and rapidly descend.
