SAFEHIP AirX Hip Protectors

Hip protection helps prevent hip fractures. People who have suffered a fall - or who are at risk of falling - can benefi t from effective hip protection. What starts out as an innocent fall may lead to an operation, a long stay in hospital and an increased demand for professional care. In addition, 30% of all people who suffer a hip fracture die within 2 years (1). A growing number of elderly people indicates a future rise in the occurrence of hip fractures. Worldwide, it is estimated that the number of hip fractures will increase from 1.66 million into 2.6 million in 2025 and 6.26 million in 2050 (2). Hip protection should be seen as an extra security that contributes to the user's own safety on the same level as seatbelt, lifejacket, or motorcycle helmet. Hip protection reduces the risk of serious injury, saves money and can also improve quality of life by promoting a sense of security, thus allowing the user to remain active, social and reduce the fear of falling. SAFEHIP® AirX® is a 100% textile hip protector with the protector shield based on AirX® spacer fabric technology, which is a breathable, skin friendly and soft textile material. The AirX® technology is your guarantee for optimal compliance. SAFEHIP® AirX® hip protectors come in three models - a female, male and unisex model in white. The pants are fl exible and comfortable to wear, not too warm, and may be used with incontinence pads as a fi xation pant. They have been designed to perform like regular underwear, with a fl y opening on the male model and lace-look detail on the female. When the gender of the patient is not known in advance, the Unisex brief is suitable for both. All SAFEHIP® AirX® pants are very durable and can be washed in industrial washing machines at up to 95°C/200°F and tumble dried at highest temperatures.
