Table 6 Falls in the three intervention groups during the 12-month follow-up period

From: The efficacy of treadmill training with and without projected visual context for improving walking ability and reducing fall incidence and fear of falling in older adults with fall-related hip fracture: a randomized controlled trial

  AT (n=14) CT (n=16) UPT (n=16)
Number of falls 11 11 20
Observation time, person-years 13.51 15.14 15.49
Fall incidence rate, falls/person-years 0.81 0.77 1.29
Number (%) of fallers 4 (28.6) 5 (31.3) 9 (56.3)
Incidence rate ratio (95% CI), relative to UPT 0.63 (0.22–1.76, p=0.377) 0.59 (0.22–1.64, p=0.314)  
Relative risk (95% CI), relative to UPT 0.51 (0.20–1.29, p=0.159) 0.56 (0.24–1.29, p=0.285)
