Abstract

Objectives: To elucidate the mechanism through which vitamin D is associated with decreased falls. Design: This was a convenience sample from a larger observational study examining correlations between vitamin D and 1) falls, 2) motor function, and 3) cognition (n=159). Setting: Falls data were collected via weekly on-line surveys completed in the participants' homes. Yearly evaluations of motor and cognitive function were conducted in an out-patient setting of a large tertiary medical center. Participants: Participants from the Intelligent Systems for Assessment of Aging Changes Study (ISAAC), a community-based cohort study of independently living older adults over age 70, who had vitamin D concentration within 6 months of clinical evaluations were included in the analysis. Results: Participants mean age was 85 years and 74% were women. Fallers (n=37) had significantly lower vitamin D concentration (32.9ng/ml) compared to non-fallers (39.2ng/ml) (p
