The aim of this study was to determine if wearing a wrist guard in snowsports impacted on fracture site in the wrist. Participants presenting to two Australian resort medical centres with wrist fractures for one month in peak season 2010 were invited to participate. Differences between the mean distance ratio of the fracture site in the wrist were determined between the guard wearing and non-guard wearing populations using analysis of variance.
