Currently in Australia, more than 16,000 people break their hip every year. All of these people will be admitted to hospital, and most will have some kind of surgery. A year later, less than half will be able to walk as well as they did, and sadly, another 6 - 7% will have died.
An Australian study providing new evidence on the injury reduction benefits of motorcycle clothing in crashes will be launched in Sydney today. The study, led by Liz de Rome, Research Fellow, The George Institute for Global Health at The University of Sydney, is the first of its kind and will be published in Accident Analysis and Prevention.
