Conclusion: Parachute use did not reduce death or major traumatic injury when jumping from aircraft in the first randomized evaluation of this intervention
Took me a minute.
Fantastic. How did they get funding for this? Testing the efficiency of parachutes when jumping from 0.6m.
I’d be willing to pitch in a fiver to conduct a studdy with a larger sample size . . .
How many cadets can we get at an RAF station?
I particularly like this bit:
PArticipation in RAndomized trials Compromised by widely Held beliefs aboUt lack of Treatment Equipoise (PARACHUTE) trial
I’m clearly being thick. Someone help me see what the joke is
That explains it better than I can.
Study is that when jumping from an aircraft (at less than 1m from the ground) a parachute is pointless…
The title however didn’t point out the height, only the result
