"In an icy and halkig day in Stockholm is usually around 200 people seek treatment after they have fallen."
"More women than men and more older people than young people coming to care due to slippage."
"During the period January to march 2018 com 4 118 in to the care with halkrelaterade damage, according to the Region the Stockholm assembly."
"– A case, especially if you are elderly, can have serious consequences, so one must be careful, " says Patrik Söderberg, chief medical officer at Stockholm Region."
"One of five people who sought care had the crushing of different kind on the knees, elbows and hips. Every third person had damage to the over - and underarms."
"– When you fall are often received with the hand and then the wrist to get off, " says Söderberg."
"TT: Is there any way to protect their arms when you fall?"
" No, it's best to be as careful as you can only pre-emptively. A small handledsbrott set to very much misery, and may require the plaster in about four weeks."
"in Order to avoid slipping, you can think of to sand properly, use dobbar under your shoes and take it easy."
"– Spring, for example, not to the bus. Also remove the ice and be careful when you simply go, says he."
"59 per cent of those who sought care during the previous year's first three months were women, but according to Söderberg, does not mean that more women are slipping."
"– It depends on several things, first that women getting older so there are more older women than men. Secondly, the women benskörare to a greater extent and get lighter skeletal injuries."

"2. Do you have a cane you can get a slip-resistant material to the at your medical center."
"3. Sand or salt on the driveway and at the entrance to your house when it's slippery. Salt works when it is warmer than seven degrees below zero."
"4. Contact your municipality if you feel that it is slippery outside shops, on the sidewalks or roads in your neighborhood."
"5. In some sjukvårdsaffärer is it possible to buy höftskyddsbyxor, which can reduce the risk of höftledsbrott if you fall."
"6. Please have a backpack on you with something soft in, for example, a large shirt or a pair of towels, when you are out walking. The backpack can protect yourself from being hit in the back or the back of the head if you fall backwards."
