HipSaver QuickChange TailBone Unisex Soft Hip Protector

HipSaver QuickChange Tailbone Soft Hip Protector is designed to protect the hips and coccyx of elderly people from fractures and  injuries sustained during falling and swaying backwards.

HipSaver QuickChange TailBone features 2 protective airPads over the trochanteric areas of the hips and a third protective pad over the tail bone (i.e. coccyx) area of the lower back.     

HipSaver QuickChange TailBone has been designed for easy wear, convenience and comfort of people with all degrees of incontinence. It has a ‘snap on’ crotch for easy and quick change of incontinence protection pads and diapers. To change incontinence pad – simply drop the crotch down, change the pad and snap the crotch back into place.

The protective airPads fit snugly over the vulnerable trochanteric areas of the hips. There is also a third protective pad at the back of the QuickChange garment that protects the coccyx from painful injuries during backward sway or a backward fall.

HipSavers QuickChange are unisex and equally popular with men and women. Available in practical beige colour resistant to staining and discolouration in 6 sizes.

To benefit from 24 hour protection, you should wear your HipSaver day and night. It is soft, comfortable and protective at all times!

The QuickChange garment itself is made from double layer fabric. The crotch is wide to accommodate incontinence pads and diapers snugly and safely and without discomfort to the user. Removing and changing incontinence pads is fast and simple – just detach the snap on fasteners and snap them back together after the incontinence pad or diaper change. 

HipSaver QuickChange Tailbone is unisex.

QuickChange style of HipSaver Soft Hip Protector 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.

Most people need 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.  

Fabric composition: 36% polyester, 56% cotton, 8% Lycra. There is no latex component in HipSaver Soft Hip Protector. 

HipSaver QuickChange Tailbone Soft Hip Protector is unisex and available in 6 sizes for snug fit and comfort.
