Wearable technology implementation to prevent fall-related hip fractures in older
Wearable hip protectors have many benefits for residents (e.g., reduced hip fractures) and for long-term care homes (e.g., reduced costs associated with severe injuries), however, many residents who could be wearing a hip protector are not. This research project builds on key insights from other falls-related research in order to design and evaluate strategies for enhancing hip protector use in Ontario long-term care homes. Researchers will work closely with team members and residents to further understand the barriers and facilitators to hip protector use and build strategies that specifically address those barriers.
