UNIVERSITY of Cumbria researchers have been awarded more than £130,000 to fund a project aimed at preventing falls in older people.

The three-year project will examine walking patterns of people aged 65 and over, and how head and eye movements can lead to falls.

Around one in three adults over 65 who live at home will have at least one fall a year, and about half of these will have more frequent falls.
