Hip Protectors & Hip Pads - Underwear, Shorts, or Pants
Hip Protectors (also referred to as hip pads) incorporate special padding into their garments to help reduce the likelihood of a hip fracture for seniors, the elderly, or anyone at risk for falling. In addition, the increased protection may relieve some of the anxiety about falling to enhance their quality of life. According to many studies, these high impact-absorbing viscoelastic pads help protect hip bones against injury in the event they do suffer a fall. The Padded Hip Underwear or undergarments can be worn discreetly under clothing or you can buy Hipster shorts and sweatpants.
