HipSaver Soft Hip Protector is a leading soft hip protector that has been rigorously tested for impact protection and proven in clinical trials and in practical use in hospitals and care homes world-wide. HipSaver is used by the NHS and care homes in the UK nationwide since 2002.
HipSavers are easy to look after and durable. They are ‘Wash, Dry and Go’ hip protection garments, which means that HipSavers are fully machine washable at 95° C high temperatures and can be tumble dried on medium heat till dry and ready to wear.

You do not need to worry about removing the airPads from the garment prior to washing as it is fully washable at 95° C and can be tumble dried at medium heat. Wash your HipSavers in the same way as your other personal garments.

To measure for appropriate Hip Saver size, you need to measure around for the hip – the circumference measurement around the body at the level of the upper thighs (trochanter areas). The trochanter area can be recognised easily as it moves, when a person raises a knee up in a standing position.
Please note: The trochanteric area of the hip is where the hip fractures occur and in need of protection. The hip is not to be confused with the top of pelvic bone that is located much higher just under the waist and more towards the front of the body. The pelvic bone does not move, when the knee is raised.
