Brian commented on After the Fall

Thanks Kate! I actually remember taking judo as a kid and learning the way to fall.
But now much older and from observing seniors, it's likely they wouldn't have the
presence of mind to react quick enough or remember how to break their fall. Also
if the fall as a result of dizzyness or vertigo or falling asleep (you'd be surprised at how
many fall out of bed or off the toilet) they have less control. I hope the community comes up with a great solution. It's a situation I'm close to and worry about (my mom) every day.
