ComfiHips hip protectors, designed in conjunction with a study at the University of Florida, are composed of an undergarment with inside pockets positioned over the greater trochanter bones. Specialized state-of-the-art pads, which absorb up to 87% of impact upon lateral falls, are placed inside the undergarments. Each pad weighs less than 25 potato chips and are so comfortable that patients can wear them while they sleep, potentially preventing falls that can often occur during nighttime trips to the bathroom. Each package contains two undergarments and two separate pads. This way patients always have a pair of ComfiHips to wear while the other undergarment is being laundered.
