Mobility Products For World Osteoporosis Day: October 20th 2017

Worldwide, one in three women and one in five men aged 50 years and over will suffer an osteoporotic fracture.  Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and fragile, so that they break easily – even as a result of a minor fall, a bump, a sneeze, or a sudden movement. Fractures caused by osteoporosis can be life-threatening and a major cause of pain and long-term disability.  Therefore wherever possible it is best to avoid bumps and falls in and around your home.

Osteoporosis Day

World Osteoporosis Day (WOD) takes place every year on October 20th; dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. Organized by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) every year, World Osteoporosis Day involves campaigns by national osteoporosis patient societies from around the world with activities in over 90 countries. #LoveYourBones
