Why hip protection?
Many people find fall prevention an annoying subject to talk about. However, it is a problem that deserves the necessary attention. On average, 88,000 people end up needing emergency aid after a fall every year. In some 15,000 of these cases, hip fracture occurs.
What is a hip protector?
A hip protector consists of a comfortable item of underwear with a special protection element, often made of a strong foam. This reduces the impact in the case of a fall and the risk of a fracture or bruising is reduced.
