Abstact. A hip fracture not only affects the body but it also the economy of human. Before improvement and prevention have been developed, research need to be done in order to identify the factors that contribute to the hip fracture. The objective of this paper is to review on past studies that related to factors that influence the impact of force to the proximal femur and to evaluate the relation of the results between computational analysis and experimental method. Experimental and finite

There are several parameters of impact force such as body mass index, the thickness of soft tissue, impact velocity and stiffness of human body that influence the effect of hip fracture during fall. Based on the previous study, force and stiffness result between FE analysis and experimental have shown good correlation. For that reason, the FE method can be applied to predict future result related to the hip fracture research.
