description: Objective: To conduct an environmental scan to identify the scope of literature on consumer products and injuries in seniors and to fill in some of the information gaps by exploring the relationship between assistive devices (AD) and fall-related injuries. Methods: The environmental scan included primary literature identified in Medline and EMBASE databases and grey literature was identified in Google and consumer product safety sites in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia. Weighted logistic regression was then used to examine the relationship between socio-demographic factors, frailty indicators, and AD use at the time of the fall, and the type of health services utilized and psychological consequences of the fall based on data from the 2008-2009 Canadian Community Health Survey on Healthy Aging. Results: The majority of the articles on consumer products and injuries reported secondary database sources and did not directly link the consumer product's influence on a given injury. We found AD use at the time of a fall was associated with hospitalization, worry about re-injury, and limiting one's activities due to this worry, even after adjustment for socio-demographic variables. When frailty variables were included in the model, however, AD use was no longer statistically significant. Conclusion: This study provides preliminary information on the relationship between AD use and fall-related outcomes. However, the current data are not sufficient to draw specific conclusions. More detailed questions regarding AD use for the entire population and additional questions regarding the contribution of the AD to the injury will help to provide a richer understanding of this relationship.

Key words: Injuries; consumer product safety; falls; elderly; aging Objectif: Proceder a une analyse de l'environnement pour definir la portee de la documentation sur les produits de consommation et les blessures chez les personnes agees et pour combler certaines donnees manquantes en explorant la relation entre les accessoires fonctionnels (AF) et les blessures liees aux chutes. Methode: L'analyse de l'environnement a inclus la documentation de base, repertoriee dans les bases de donnees Medline et EMBASE, et la litterature grise trouvee dans Google et sur les sites de securite des produits de consommation des Etats-Unis, du Canada, du Royaume-Uni et de l'Australie. Nous avons ensuite procede a une analyse de regression logistique ponderee pour examiner la relation entre les facteurs sociodemographiques, les indicateurs de fragilite et l'utilisation d'AF au moment de la chute, d'une part, et le type de services de sante utilises et les consequences psychologiques de la chute, d'autre part, selon les donnees sur le vieillissement en sante dans l'Enquete sur la sante dans les collectivites canadiennes 2008-2009. Resultats: La majorite des articles publies sur les produits de consommation et les blessures citent des sources de donnees secondaires et ne font pas de lien direct entre les produits de consommation et tel ou tel type de blessure. Nous avons constate que l'utilisation d'un AF au moment de la chute etait associee a l'hospitalisation, a la crainte de se blesser a nouveau et a la restriction des activites en raison de cette crainte, meme compte tenu des variables sociodemographiques. Quand nous avons inclus les variables de fragilite dans le modele cependant, l'utilisation d'un AF n'etait plus un facteur significatif. Conclusion: Notre etude donne des informations preliminaires sur la relation entre l'utilisation d'AF et les resultats sanitaires apres une chute. Les donnees actuelles sont toutefois insuffisantes pour tirer des conclusions precises. Des questions plus detaillees sur l'utilisation des AF, a l'echelle de la population, et des questions supplementaires sur le role des AF dans les blessures nous aideront a mieux comprendre la nature de cette relation.
