John Hopkins Health after 50: Hip protectors are devices designed to protect the hip bones during a fall. Most types are worn under clothing and consist of plastic shields or foam pads that are held in place at the hips with specially designed underwear. They reduce the risk of hip fractures by absorbing the force of a fall and diverting this force away from the hip bone. Learn more Visit John Hopkins Health after 50 web site.
Health and Age: Fractures of the hip in the elderly are becoming more common. This can be due to a number of causes: an increased number and average age of older people, an increased risk of falls because of increased activity by elders, and lessened bone mineral density with age.
