Why do Bones Fail?
Osteoporosis is a widespread disease. Every third woman and every fifth man are affected by bone loss with advancing age. A frequent consequence of this is a fracture of the femoral neck—a painful injury that massively impairs the quality of life of those affected. Patients must reckon with long term loss of mobility. Long bed rest and the associated often poor general condition even lead to an increased mortality rate.
