L’appréhension de la chute chez la personne âgée : existe-t-il un intérêt à l’apprentissage de la chute ?

Abstract : Fear of falling is common among the elderly. It can have a negative impact on the autonomy of the person. This study aimed to understand if having learned to fall in judo reduces the fear of falling in older adults. Methodology : to answer this problematic we realized a cohort study. Thirty-seven subjects aged 65 and over were included (17 non-judokas and 20 judokas). The primary endpoint was the FES-I test score. Results : the average FES-I score was 18.6 ± 5.2 for the judo group and 25.9 ± 10.6 for the non-judo group. This difference was significant (p-value = 0.0003). Discussion : learning how to fall at judo may reduces the fear of falling in the elderly but this study has some bias so it is not possible to affirm it. Learning how to fall could be a good way to prevent fear of falling. It would be interesting to set up a reeducation program including the learning of the fall to see if it is effective in elderly people who are already afraid of falling.
