Abstract: A method to protect the hips during falls could effectively reduce the incidence of hip fractures. We report the results of the first hip protector trial in Japan, performed between July 1996, and September 1999. One hundred and sixty-four elderly female residents of nursing homes, with Activities of Daily Living above the wheelchair level, agreed to participate in this study. Among them, 88 were randomly selected to wear a hip protector and 76 controls did not. All falls and… Expand
Effectiveness of Hornsby Healthy Hip pants on hip fracture prevention from falls in the elders living in institution
TLDR
Based on the large effect size, elders in hip protector group seem likely to have low falls rate and very high compliance rate, which could be implied that Hornsby Healthy Hip hip protector might be an alternative approach for falls prevention. Expand
Prevention of hip fractures by external hip protectors: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
The hip protector studied was not effective in preventing hip fractures and the per protocol analysis in compliant participants did not show a statistically significant difference between the groups. Expand
Hip protectors' effectiveness as a nursing intervention in residential care - a literature review
TLDR
Nurses need to carefully assess which elderly need hip protectors and to continue assessing as needs change and must educate caregivers and the elderly on the correct use of hip protector and their limitations. Expand
Efficacy of a hip protector to prevent hip fracture in nursing home residents: the HIP PRO randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
In this clinical trial of an energy-absorbing/shunting hip protector conducted in US nursing homes, the study was terminated due to a lack of efficacy, adding to the increasing body of evidence that hip protectors, as currently designed, are not effective for preventing hip fracture. Expand
Do hip protectors decrease the risk of hip fracture in institutional and community-dwelling elderly? A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
There is little evidence to support the use of hip protectors outside the nursing home setting, and the potential benefit of Hip protectors in reducing hip fractures in nursing home residents requires further confirmation. Expand
Prevention of hip fracture by external hip protectors: an intervention in 17 nursing homes in two municipalities in Norway
TLDR
This non-randomized study showed that hip protectors introduced to all residents in nursing homes considerably reduced the incidence of hip fracture. Expand
Hip protectors for preventing hip fractures in older people.
TLDR
Hip protectors probably reduce the risk of hip fractures if made available to older people in nursing care or residential care settings, without increasing the frequency of falls, however, hip protectors may slightly increase the small risk of pelvic fractures. Expand
External hip protectors are effective for the elderly with higher-than-average risk factors for hip fractures
TLDR
Risk of hip fracture can be reduced by hip protectors among elderly women with fall history and low BMI among nursing homes with 672 ambulatory but frail elderly women. Expand
The Amsterdam Hip Protector Study: compliance and determinants of compliance
TLDR
Although the compliance percentages were moderately high during the unannounced visits in this study, not everyone was wearing the protector correctly and most participants did not wear the hip protector during the night, indicating compliance is a very important issue in hip protector research and implementation.

Mechanical evaluation of hip pads to protect against fracture of elderly femurs in falls.
TLDR
An impact testing system was developed and the hip pad with air cushions had a high impact absorbing performance and was sufficiently effective to protect against hip fracture. Expand

Effect of external hip protectors on hip fractures
TLDR
It is indicated that external hip protectors can prevent hip fractures in nursing-home residents. Expand
Fall direction, bone mineral density, and function: risk factors for hip fracture in frail nursing home elderly.
TLDR
The data suggest that, among the frailest elderly, measures to reduce the severity of a sideways fall and improve mobility touch on new domains of risk, independent of bone mineral density, that need to be targeted for hip fracture prevention in this high-risk group. Expand
Etiology and prevention of age-related hip fractures.
TLDR
The findings clearly suggest that factors related to both loading and bone fragility play important roles in the etiology of hip fracture, and emphasize the continuing need for combined intervention strategies that focus on fall prevention, reductions in fall severity, and maintaining or increasing femoral bone mass and strength. Expand
Epidemiology of hip fractures: implications of the exponential increase with age.
TLDR
The multifactorial nature of the problem suggests that hip fractures will be difficult to prevent even as the fractures and their associated costs continue to rise with the increased number of older people, but the variability of hip fracture rates within high risk populations in Europe and North America reflects the existence of other powerful risk factors that, if identified, might provide the basis for more effective interventions.

TLDR
It is concluded that falls among older persons living in the community are common and that a simple clinical assessment can identify the elderly persons who are at the greatest risk of falling. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that a combination of measurements of neuromuscular function and of bone strength may be the most accurate approach to assessing the risk of hip fracture. Expand
