Reducing the risk of hip fractures in the elderly, or for post operative care The Hipshield can help to prevent a fall becoming an injury and is designed to absorb and deflect impact away from the hipbone. The Hipshield itself is discreet and comfortable to wear and inside the protector is a lightweight honeycomb structure that compresses on impact. The Hipshield just slips into a pair of protector pants and is unobtrusive beneath skirts or trousers. Pants are available in two styles, male and female, in six sizes based on waist measurement. Made of 95% cotton, each pair has internal pockets that you simply 'slip' the Hip protector into before putting on the garment. Suitable for day or nightwear the Hipshield is available in 'single' or 'triple pack'. The single pack contains one knickers/pants plus two Hip protectors. The triple pack contains three knickers/pants plus two Hip protectors. The perfect solution, one pair to wear, one in the wash and one spare!
