More about HipSaver Nursing Home Style Soft Hip Protector

The design and the construction of the HipSaver Nursing Home Style deliver synergy and compatibility between hip protection and continence protection without compromise to effectiveness and comfort.

HipSaver Nursing Home Style is available in a regular model for women and with simulated fly front for men.

HipSaver Nursing Home Style is available in a practical beige colour to minimise incontinence related staining and discolouration caused by frequent high temperature machine washing. 

The fabric has a horizontal stretch that facilitates snug enveloping of the users body during wear. There is no vertical stretch in the fabric in order to secure safe positioning of the incontinence wear inside the hip protector garment as well as prevent the incontinence wear from pulling the garment downwards during activities, such as walking.

HipSavers are easy to look after and durable. They are ‘Wash, Dry and Go’ garments, which means that HipSavers are fully machine washable at 95° C high temperatures and can be tumble dried on medium heat till dry and ready to wear.

Compatibility with high temperature wash at 95° C is essential, when HipSavers are used in care homes or hospitals, where washing at high temperatures is a requirement of strict hygiene and infection prevention regulations.  

When washing HipSaver Nursing Home Style at home, wash your HipSaver in the same way as your other personal garments or as required for best hygiene up to 95° C.  

Please note that the protective HipSaver airPads are permanently sewn into the garment in the areas over the hips. The airPads are watertight and machine washable at high 95° C temperatures. You do not remove the airPads from the garment prior to washing as it is fully washable at 95° C and can be tumble dried at medium heat.   

Most people require 3 pairs of HipSavers – one pair worn, one in a wash and one ready to wear. People with a very high degree of incontinence may require more than 3 garments, depending on the frequency of garment changes and laundry availability.   

*HipSaver Soft Hip Protector can be purchased VAT Free by chronically ill registered disabled people. 

Fabric composition: 36% polyester, 56% cotton, 8% Lycra

Please note that there are NO latex components in HipSaver Soft Hip Protectors!

HipSaver Nursing Home Style Soft Hip Protectors in male and female models are available in 7 hip sizes for snug fit and comfort.
