One in four older adults will fall each year, and the CDC estimates that by 2020 there will 29 million falls reported in those 65 and older. During this Challenge, OpenIDEO will work with the Challenge sponsor – AARP Services Inc. – and a global community to design tangible solutions that help prevent falls.
There’s a huge need to destigmatize fall prevention tools and build solutions that leverage knowledge and expertise across generations and geographies. Challenge participants are tasked with developing tools, environments and campaigns that support people in living mobile, healthy and empowered lives. Everyone has a stake in devising innovative ways to help prevent millions of injuries from falls each year across the world.
