Advantages of Wearing Hip Protectors
Many studies have shown that hip protectors help prevent hip fractures in older individuals at high risk for falling. Wearing a hip protector can help reduce the impact of a fall and lower the likelihood of a hip fracture. By offering increased protection, Posey Hipsters may relieve the wearer’s anxiety about falling and may enhance their quality of life.
Recommeded Use: Patients at risk for falling; those at risk for a hip fracture.
