Safehip AirX Hip Pad Hip Protector Underwear

While hip fractures are one of the most common and dangerous injuries for the elderly, it can be difficult to find a reliable method of protection that isn't inconvenient or cumbersome. The Safehip AirX Hip Pad Hip Protector Underwear are designed to provide the user with wearable hip protection that goes everywhere they do – providing powerful and discreet hip protection that can change lives. Representing a unique combination of comfort and protection, these underwear feature a built-in horse-shoe shaped shield, designed to disperse pressure away from the hip joint to prevent injury and provide peace of mind.

Peace of Mind

Hip fractures are exceedingly dangerous for the elderly, as they can lead to the need for operations, an extended stay in hospital, and a long and gruelling recovery process. While common-sense protection like seatbelts, motorcycle helmets and life jackets are seen as essentials, safety for hip protection is often needlessly neglected. The Safehip AirX Underwear is designed to provide this much-needed protection, allowing the elderly the peace of mind to carry on an active and social lifestyle.

Breathable Comfort

This pair of underwear is designed to provide the same comfort as a high-end alternative – with extra protection built in. They are made with AirX spacer fabric technology, which is a breathable, soft and skin-friendly material that keeps the wearer cool and comfortable all day long. Flexible while preventing moisture build-up, AirX Underwear provides comfortable wear, all day long.

Discreet Protection

Since this underwear is made with a high elastane content, it naturally conforms to the body to provide a discreet and ideal fit. The shields are designed to follow the contours of the body, ensuring they won't look out of place under clothes so protection is provided without changing the user's appearance.

Clinically Proven

Safehip AirX Hip Pad Hip Protector Underwear has been tested and proven to significantly improve safety in those at risk of injury from falls. In fact, in clinical trials conducted on more than 7,000 users around the world, Safehip AirX Underwear was proven to reduce hip fractures from falls by 64%!
