A hip fracture is a serious injury which can be particulary detrimental if you are over the age of 65. Older people are more at risk to hip fractures due to a number of contributing factors such as weakening bones and balance and vision problems.
A hip fracture almost always requires surgical repair or replacement followed by months of physical therapy. taking steps to improve bone density and prevent falls is the best way to help prevent fracture.
HipSavers are proven to help prevent fracture by cushioning the most vulnerable part of the hip on both sides of the body.
HipSavers are worn like underwear and are almost invisible under clothing.
A study was conducted on 106 geriatric patients in 2004 over a 1.5 year period. The HipSavers showed an 80% reduction in hip fractures with 11 hip fractures prevented overall.
The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association.
