HIP-HOP Flooring Study

CoupleIn hospitals, older people can fall and hurt themselves. We want to see if a new type of flooring can help stop people hurting themselves as badly, if they accidentally fall. This study is being organised by the University of Portsmouth.

The study is being funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust (a research charity). The National Osteoporosis Society is also funding part of this study. We are working with researchers from the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) at the University of Sheffield and the Health & Safety Laboratory. Many other people are helping to advise us.
