If you or a family member are prone to falling, you run the 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 securely positioned in integrated pockets. The belt style is great for those who prefer not to wear a full pair of shorts, and the hook and loop closure makes this belt easy to put on and take off. Can be worn over or under clothing.
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.
