We love the “ComfiHips” brand of hip protectors! We switched to them several years ago from another brand that we had difficulty with the waist bands ripping. “ComfiHips” come in both male and female styles. They look and are more like underwear and are not as bulky under the clothing and yet are effective. They are big part of our fall prevention from injury program. They come in all the sizes you would need to meet the individual resident’s needs. Many of our residents wear “ComfiHips” while they sleep and that gives them more security when they have to get up in the middle of the night. They launder very well and our laundry staff have no trouble keeping them nice and white. The company is very timely in sending us new ones whenever we need them. We do not seem to have to re-order them as often as our last brand as they do hold up well through wear and washings. I would recommend them to other facilities for their fall injury prevention programs.

“Now that I'm wearing Comfihips, I feel so much more secure and I don't think about falling anymore!
I'm so happy my cousin found this product and brought it to my attention. I hope that other people will find out about it and use it too.”

“We have been using ComfiHips at Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe since 2011. Our residents love wearing them. They tell us that they are so lightweight and streamline they don’t realize they even have them on! As an Administrator, I’m thrilled this product exists, as I feel so much better knowing that my residents have the best protection for their hips in case they fall. Every Administrator and Director of Nursing should make sure their residents are assessed for their potential risk of falling and have them wearing ComfiHips if they need them. It is a fabulous product and a win-win situation for the facility and the residents.”
