Give your hips 24/7 protection from the impact of a fall, with the Fall-Safe Hip Protectors® and Pants…
These specially-designed hip protectors harden on impact, giving your hips ultimate protection.
Ideal for anyone who is at risk from falls, whether due to osteoporosis, dizziness, conditions such as Parkinsons, dementia or side-effect of medication.
The pads are fixed to your skin with adhesive film. They can be easily removed from your skin and reapplied with the same film for 10 – 14 days. After this, you will need to apply a new layer of adhesive film.
Instructions are provided on the films and the pads can be worn continuously even while showering (but not in the bath).
Each pack contains 2 hip protection pads and 12 self-adhesive films.

Q: Are the self-adhesive films easy to apply?
A: Yes, clear instructions are provided on the back of each film, as shown in the photograph.
Q: How long will the pads last?
A: Approximately 3 years with normal use.
Q: How are they cleaned?
A: Washed under a tap with washing-up liquid, or wiped down with an alcoholic wipe, or put in the wash at <65˚C.
Q: How long will a pair of adhesive films last?
A: Generally, from 10-14 days, though some people will want to change them earlier as skin types differ. Human skin renews itself every 14 days.
Q: Are the adhesive film and pads non-toxic?
A: Yes, they have passed all the standard tests and been certified non-toxic.
Q: Are they widely used in care homes?
A: Yes, they are used daily in scores of care homes as well as in hospitals and by people living in the community.
Q: Why are they claimed to be so effective?
A: Because the special reactive material hardens within 1 millisecond of impact to absorb the blow across the entire pad, and then immediately relaxes to its former soft and flexible state.

I am wearing the hip protectors while recuperating from a fall - with the prognosis of a month on crutches. They are very, very comfortable and not noticeable under my track suit. Wearing the pants with the protectors gives me the conﬁdence to do more on crutches and I am hoping that this this will accelerate my re-habilitation.
