However, it’s usually after the fall that treatment and awareness follow. In a study, researchers at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Urbana-Champaign, found that wearable devices with motion sensors can predict older participants’ risk of falling. #technology #consumerelectronics #research #sensors #medicine #injury #prediction

In an earlier post, we described the high impact an ostomy often has on a patient's life. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of an ostomy creation is hernia formation which is one of the main consequences of abdominal surgeries. Many of the concerns expressed by individuals with hernias are body image problems. The worries and fears include anxiety around how big the hernia will grow as well as uncertainty about the future in general. Some may also react with disgust and shock at the thought of having not only a stoma, but also a parastomal hernia, as this will be visible. Fortunately, there is much focus on how these concerns can be addressed. #design #surgery #bodyimage #hernia #abdominal

Why is biomechanical testing of SAFEHIP® hip protectors important? We know for a fact that the shape of our Safehip horseshoe protector shields with the hole in the middle makes it challenging to explain and advocate for the advantage of this over the classic fully covering type of hip protector shields. In this context, it is important to know, how hip protectors attenuate force as this ability may prevent a hip fracture. We use biomechanical test to demonstrate this. The aim of the biomechanical tests is to prove exactly this – that by not covering the critical spot on the hip, the hip protector shield becomes more effective. Read this article to see how the efficiency of hip protectors are tested and how the different SAFEHIP® products managed the test. #hip #fracture #biomechanics

Function is king, feminine appearance is queen. A post-op bra must support and enhance the surgical outcome, speed up the healing process and offer comfortable recovery after breast cancer surgery. And while the function of a post-op bra is crucial, the aesthetic look of the bra must not be overlooked, as this contributes to higher compliance and enhances the women’s feeling of “normality”. Better design increases compliance. We have this in mind, when we design our products for the Carefix post-op bra, so that our bras do not "only" fulfill the very important medical purpose, but also the woman's need for a both comfortable and nice-looking bra.
