מגיני ירכיים דגם "SAFEHIP ACTIVE"
SAFEHIP® Active is a belt with hook-&-loop closure and sewn-in hip protector shields. It is intended for temporary requirements (rehabilitation) and designed for active elderly people who are afraid of falling. The SAFEHIP® Active hip protector belt is based on our specially patented horseshoe-shaped shield. The patented shield technology of SAFEHIP® uses an energy shunting technique to take the fall impact by dispersing the energy from the fall away from the hip area. SAFEHIP® is an evidence-based, clinical and very comfortable hip fracture prevention solution designed to reduce the incidence of hip fractures.

The basic fabric behind the SAFEHIP® Active belt is the 3 dimensional spacer fabric called AirX™. One of the unique features of the AirX™ material is the ability to wick moisture efficiently away from the skin. Furthermore, the material is breathable and the products will not feel warm to wear. The soft, lightweight material follows the contours of the body, which means that the flexible AirX™ conforms perfectly to the user’s body shape. The result is a much improved user compliance.
SAFEHIP® is the most thoroughly tested hip protector in the world. It has been tested on more than 7,000 users in clinical trials in Scandinavia, Holland, Germany, Japan and Australia, and the results are unequivocal: SAFEHIP® has a significant effect in reducing the number of hip fractures.
SAFEHIP® Active has been designed for people who are still lead- ing an active daily life, and perhaps only need more protection when they are active outside of their home. The belt is easily applied by the user or by a caregiver. SAFEHIP® Active is also ideal for use in rehabilitation centres and hospitals by physio- therapists and occupational therapists in their work with patients after a hip operation. It can be worn over the user’s clothes. With sewn-in shields and available in black.
