Post-fracture care: Do we need to educate patients rather than doctors?
This multicenter, randomized controlled trial involved 436 women, aged 50-85 years, who had attended hospital for treatment of a fragility fracture of the wrist or upper arm. The intervention group received repeated oral and written information about fragility fractures and osteoporosis management by a case manager, who prompted the patients to visit their primary care physicians to ask for BMD testing and management. This was found to improve the rate of post-fracture BMD testing by 20 percent. (2017-04-25)

Farmers are not just the backbone of a nation, they may have stronger hips too
This study found that in Sweden, for male farmers, the risk of a hip fracture was 14 percent lower compared to other occupations, adjusted for age. When also adjusted for rural status of residence, the risk reduction was still 15 percent lower. When also adjusted for income, education and latitude the effect was even more marked -- at 39 percent lower risk. (2016-04-16)

Computer model predicts how fracturing metallic glass releases energy at the atomic level
Metallic glasses are an exciting research target, but the difficulties associated with predicting how much energy these materials release when they fracture is slowing down development of metallic glass-based products. Recently, researchers developed a way of simulating to the atomic level how metallic glasses behave as they fracture. This modeling technique could improve computer-aided materials design and help researchers determine the properties of metallic glasses. They report their findings in the Journal of Applied Physics.

Bunk beds pose dangers to kids and adults
What would sleepovers and summer camps be without bunk beds? According to a new national study, they might be a little safer. For the first time, researchers have looked at injury rates in bunk beds for people ages 1 through 21, and found some surprising results. Not only are kids under 6 hurt most often, there is an additional spike in injuries between ages 18 and 21. Experts attribute that to young adults using bunk beds in places like college dorms or military barracks. (2008-06-02)
