    A newly designed Hip’ Safe Helite Airbag, the first wearable airbag will protects seniors from hip fractures in case of fall down.

    As we get older, osteoporosis and some stress injuries can weaken our bones and make susceptible to break easily even with a little fall. The scary thing is When we fall, we fall hard, and it becomes more and more difficult for our bodies to recover.

    Hip fractures are common in old adults as their bones are weak with osteoporosis
    Break in the upper quarter of the femur (thigh) bone, hip fracture is the one of commonest type of bone fracture in old adults says orthopedic surgeons.
