Hip fracture protection with tytex

Innovation with care in mind. Let's break the fall and not the hip.

Innovative approach to protecting people from fall-induced fractures

The average population age continues to rise, and individuals continue to lead independent, active lives into their senior years. Naturally, the need for safeguarding against a constant and underlying risk of hip fractures becomes increasingly crucial. As a response, we have developed Safehip: an innovative approach to protecting people from fall-induced hip fractures.

Hip protectors can help break a fall and not the hip

The Cochrane Study reviewed the effectiveness of hip protectors preventing hip fractures in older people. The Cochrane study was first published in 1999 and the evidence was promising. In the study, the risk of hip fracture was reduced nearly three-fold if the subject wore a hip protector at the time of falling. 

Safehip is the world’s leading hip protector. The effect is clinically proven and can reduce the risk for fracturing a hip with around two thirds. But don't take our word for it - reach out to us and get the latest data.
