For seniors, a fall can cause a hip fracture, so it's vital to protect this hip bone. The Hip Pad Hip Protector, open by Safehip AirX protects the critical areas around the hips to absorb the impact of a fall. This helps reducing the risk of injury, and divertes the impact to the surrounding parts. The Open part of the pants makes this ideal to be used with incontinence pads or adult diapers as it facilitates the change of incontinence pads.

Patented shock absorbent hip protector

The Hip Pad Hip Protector is based on impact dispersion and absorption. This means that, in the event of a fall on the hip, the hip protector disperses the energy of the impact away from the hip bone. This energy is absorbed by the soft tissue and the muscles around the femoral neck, reducing the risk of a hip fracture.


Hip Protector Safehip AirX

The horse-shoe shaped shield, fitted inside the pants, is highly shock absorbent and can absorb up to 60% of the impact from a fall.

To ensure the best fit possible, the Air X 16 mm fabric shapes to the contours of the body. This makes these hip protectors very comfortable to wear.

Clinical evidence

The clinical evidence is based on intensive research and development, with constant focus on the user’s needs.

The Hip Pad Hip protector by Safehip AirX has been tested on more than 7,000 people in a long series of clinical trials in Scandinavia, Germany, Holland, Japan and Australia.

That is why this hip protection underwear is the most sold and available hip protector in the world.



Thin, Comfortable Design

Despite their high level of shock absorption, the protective AirX fabric is only 16mm thick. The 4-way stretch fabric contours the body naturally for best possible comfort throughout the day and overnight.

The hip protectors are worn in a pair of pants, ensuring correct positioning and comfortable use. The shorts can be washed at 90° C.
