Hip injuries, resulting from falls, are the leading cause of injury death and the main cause of nonfatal injuries that limit independent living among people 65 years and older. While medications, such as sedatives and anti-anxiety drugs, often increase the risk of falls and fall-related injuries, poor vision, and just difficulty in moving from place to place put the elderly at risk of a fall that may result in a fatal or debilitating hip injury or hip fracture
Seniors often develop a fear of falling, causing them to limit activities and leading to reduced mobility. Scientifically proven to reduce hip fractures and traumatic hip injuries, HipSaver products restore confidence of motion to the elderly, both preserving physical health and increasing senior mobility. Worldwide, study after study* proves that hip protection is an effective prevention of hip injury due to fall.

The large leg openings make the HipSaver® Nursing Home easy to pull on and off. The full, soft fabric crotch perfectly accommodates incontinence pads.
Protection that's easy to wear
Designed for optimum style and comfort, HipSaver® SlimFit looks good, feels good and pulls on just like regular underwear. It’s ideal for elders who are fashion conscious, active, or prefer a longer leg length in their undergarment. HipSaver® SlimFit can accommodate an incontinence pad and is ideal for walking, golf, tennis, skiing and other sports.
The male version features a built-in fly front.
Discrete and Effective
HipSaver® QuickChange gives you all the features and benefits of the Nursing Home style but with the convenience of a snap down crotch panel. This allows carers to change incontinence products quickly and easily without having to pull the brief down while the wearer is in a standing or lying down position.

Makes changing easier for carers
HipSaver Open Bottom
Requested by nursing staff who saw a need for residents to have a garment that permits easy self-toileting. The open crotch design is perfect for patients with urge incontinence or challenges in getting clothing on or off.
HipSaver® Open Bottom is worn against the skin underneath any incontinence products, and allows a resident’s normal underwear to be worn over the top of the protector.
For quick and easy toileting
Immediate professional hip safety, perfect for:
- New admissions adjusting to new surroundings
- Acute care and short stay patients
- Residents with temporary changes in risk factors
HipSaver® Interim does not need to be patient specific because it is not underwear. Keeping a small supply of HipSaver® Interim in stock will ensure that you can offer seamless protection to those patients at risk of falls and fractures.
HipSaver Interims are also available with built-in tailbone protection and are commonly used as pyjama pants.
The perfect stop-gap for your Falls Management Program
HipSaver with Tailbone Protection
When people fall, there’s no guarantee that they will fall directly to one side. Sometimes they fall backwards. Therefore our High Compliance models are now available with permanently sewn-in tailbone protection. This added protection is available in Nursing Home, QuickChange, SlimFit, Interim, Shorts and Track Pants styles (not available in Open Bottom).
Protection for both hips and tailbone
