Femoral neck fracture often occurs when elderly people, especially women, fall down. It is one of the major reasons to become in need of care or bedridden. Hip protectors are known to be effective in preventing femoral neck fracture, but it has not been widely used, due to the hardness and thickness of pads which makes protectors uncomfortable. Kaneka teamed up with Nagoya University, Shibaura Institute of Technology, and the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology Hospital to develop a revolutionary, new hip protector. New pads are only 6mm thick, thinner than anything before. It feels comfortable to wear and minimizes impacts in case of a fall.
