Hip fractures in the elderly are a serious risk that usually requires surgery. Prevention is infinitely preferable to treatment.

The Hip Shield Hip Protector Belt by SaheHip has been specifically developed to reduce the risk of hip fractures in seniors. It is also suitable for post-surgery hip care. The Hip Shield Hip Protector Belt by SAFEHIP® AirX is a belt with hook & loop fastener and sewn-in hip protector pads made out of soft PE foam. The belt is designed to absorb and deflect impact away from the hipbone and prevent hip injury. It is designed for active seniors who are at risk of falling.

How Does the Hip Shield Hip Protector Work?

Positioned in critical areas around the hips, the sewn-in foam shield can effectively prevent hip fractures. 

In the event of a fall, the unique Hip Shield Hip Protector absorbs and dissipates the impact, reducing the risk of hip fracture, trauma and bruising to the vulnerable hip area.

 

The Hip Shield itself is discreet and comfortable to wear and is unobtrusive beneath a skirt or trousers.

  • Frail seniors
