If you or a family member are prone to falling, you are at risk of a hip injury. The protection pads on both sides of this hip protector effectively prevent hip fractures. These pads are made of shock-absorbing visco-elastic soft foam (similar to memory foam), and they are easy to remove if necessary. The shorts are made of a soft cotton-lycra blend, with a stretchy elastic waistband and leg borders for the highest level of comfort. Made in Germany.
Careful washing will prolong the life of the brace. Remove all stays before washing. Hand wash with a non-detergent washing solution, and air dry (away from the sun and heating vents). Do not put the brace in the washing machine or dryer.
