ABSTRACT
The article looks at the use of external hip protectors to prevent fractures due to falls. Finnish researchers found that the risk of hip fracture can be significantly decreased if a hip protector is worn at the time of the fall. However, the researchers also found that many participants refused to wear the hip protector.
