This Hip Protector with Hard Shields works like a crash helmet for the hip.
The shells are designed to cover the neck of the thigh bone. This reduces the risk of a hip fracture, in the event of a fall. The Hip Protector transfers the impact of a fall on the hip, into the tissue surrounding that hip.
It is advised by the manufacturer that shaped pads be worn.
