ATHERTON-based MP Julie Hilling witnessed the impact of severe osteoporosis at the parliamentary launch of World Osteoporosis Day, last week.

Ms Hilling tried on an ‘osteoporosis suit’ that uses a system of harnesses, braces and bands to allow the wearer to experience the physical impact of the condition demonstrated by the National Osteoporosis Society (NOS) policy team.

Age UK and the National Osteoporosis Society are establishing a new ‘Falls and Fractures Alliance’ in England and the MP said: “I welcome the liaison to highlight the need for falls prevention”.
