Global Edmonton | Canadian scientists study snow slips and falls in winter laboratory

 

Slipping on ice or snow is a rite of passage in Canadian winters. But a group of scientists working in an ice-rink laboratory are looking into how to avoid those nasty wipe outs that leave us with sprained ankles, thrown backs and broken bones.
