Here’s where you can find out what exactly hip protectors are and what they do. We could tell you something like this: They’re a specialised form of pants or underwear containing pads (either hard or soft) along the outside of each hip/leg, designed to prevent hip fractures following a fall. Problem is it really doesn’t tell you what, at least in plain English, hip protectors are and why you should use them.

Let’s figure out what exactly hip protectors are, and why they’re useful. We offer two types the belt and pants. The belt fits around the waist just like a belt. It’s smaller, more comfortable and easier to put on and wear.

The pants are a bit different. They’re worn like underwear and have with pads used to cover the bony extensions of the hip area.

Hip protectors are most commonly used in elderly individuals who have a high risk of falls and hip fractures (for example, due to the history of a previous fall and underlying osteoporosis).

Every year, around 300,000 Americans are hospitalised for breaking a hip during a fall. Hip fractures are difficult to recover from, especially for older patients.

Lower bone density and muscle is another reason for hip fractures – better known as Osteoporosis it’s a leading cause for broken hips. The disease causes bones to become weak and brittle and doesn’t produce new bone as fast.

We deal with both family members and companies looking at ways to protect older people from falls. No matter who you are our hip protectors gives you peace of mind to help against injury. If you or your loved ones are living at home or in a care facility we can make sure people are safer from possible falls.

A number of reviews have found that hip protectors are cost-effective, particularly among residents of care homes and for long-stay patients in a hospital.

What Makes Hip Fractures So Dangerous for the Elderly?

Every year, around 300,000 Americans are hospitalised for breaking a hip during a fall. Hip fractures are difficult to recover from, especially for older patients. A study published in 2015 by Mediators of Inflammation revealed up to 96% of people who broke their hip were over 65.

Lower bone density and muscle is another reason for hip fractures. Commonly known as Osteoporosis it’s more common in elderly women is a leading cause for broken hips.

The disease causes bones to become weak and brittle and doesn’t produce new bone as quickly as older bone tissue is removed. Osteoporosis-related breaks are among the most common types of hip fractures, as bone fractures can occur easily with any type of fall.

Older patients with reduced muscle mass are more at risk of falling due to mobility and balance issues and, subsequently, suffering from a hip fracture.

It may be that you are the caregiver for someone who has an increased risk of falls or fractures. This is where Olivia Johns hip protectors can help with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that if a fall should happen, the risk of injury has been reduced.

Our hip protectors can use used not only in your own home but in assisted living and nursing homes to help keep residents safe from falls injuries.  If you or your loved one is living in a residential care community and are interested in purchasing hip protectors, ask a staff member if your community already uses these.  If not, contact us and we can send both you and the community further information.
