Caption: Hospital nurse and patient. The nurse is preparing the patient for traction to be applied to her bandaged leg (lower left). This is the orthopaedics department of this hospital. The elderly are more prone to broken bones and joint problems as they age. Post-menopausal women are particularly at risk of losing bone density in the condition called osteoporosis. This leads to bones that are brittle. Photographed in the Netherlands.
