We thank van Hateren et al for their comments on our article on multifactorial fall prevention in high-risk older persons.1 They point out that we did not report the results of the separate preventive measures aimed at the risk factors for falls. However, in Table 3 of our article1 we showed several differences related to risk factors for falling that were the result of our intervention.
