Only from Plum Enterprises… Your Fall Safety Specialist™
The Serious Problem Hip Fractures
- Hip fractures cause the greatest number of deaths and lead to the most severe health problems and poorer quality of life. One in four women who have a hip fracture will die within a year.
- Hip fractures are the most frequent type of fall-related fracture, with traumatic brain injuries second, and extremity injuries third.
- Hip fractures are a major threat to the health and well-being of older adults. One-third of adults 65 and older fall at least once a year, and the risk increases with age.
- Osteoporosis is one of the major public health problems facing older adults, particularly older women, with hip fracture the most severe consequence.
- One in two woman and one in four men over 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime.
The Challenge of Preventing Hip Fractures
- As we age, the incidence and progression of osteoporosis can become an increasing, if invisible, risk which can make it that much harder to recognize it and prevent.
- Osteoporosis means porous bone, which occurs as the loss of bone and density outpace the growth and density of new bone.
- With the onset and progression of osteoporosis, bones become brittle and more vulnerable to the breakage from fall injuries, particularly the hip area.
- Low calcium, lack of exercise, low estrogen, menopause, the growth hormone and the parathyroid hormone can all cause cause lower bone density and osteoporosis.
- Protecting the hip area comfortably, effectively and attractively so individuals can remain safe and active is a challenge.
