These comfortable pants protect the hips from a fall that could lead to loss of mobility and independence.
SafeHip one-piece hip protector is a high-quality undergarment with sewn-in hip protectors (soft pads that have a patented “horseshoe-shaped” shield) that are in the right places to absorb the impact and cushion the body from falls. Ideal for those active and frail, SafeHip gives protection against a fractured hip from a fall that could lead to permanent injury, and loss of mobility and independence.
There are two models – the AirX and Open. The AirX model may be used with incontinence, and is comfortable and made out of textile material that is cool and flexible. The Open model offers protection for those who suffer from heavy urine and/or stool incontinence. Designed to be worn under diapers, this model is useful for those who require easy access without removing the hip protector. It is also ideal for those suffering from dementia, dizziness or reduced physical strength. It facilitates diaper changes and is good for night-time use.
The two models come in various sizes for both men and women, and each is priced at S$129. It is currently being sold by Comfort Keepers. To order, call 6348 9007.
