Journal of the American Medical Directors Association The results of a 13 month long study were published in the Sept/Oct. 2003 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association. HipSavers were written into the care plan of 38 at-risk residents. The study authors report an average 93% compliance rate for the duration of the study. Equally important, there were 126 falls among the HipSaver wearers and no hip fractures. The results are very significant since compliance is a major ingredient in the success of any hip protector program. Previous studies on hard-shell hip protectors have reported much lower compliance rates. Canadian Family Physician Do hip pads help prevent hip fractures?
