The hip joint is located in the pelvic girdle and consists of the acetabulum and proximal part of femur. This is a multiaxial ball-and-socket joint like the glenohumeral (shoulder) joint. The hip joint has a stronger labral rim combined with the ligament and capsule. Reinforcement by associated soft tissues provides good stability.
OPPOR hip dual-protector includes the outer shield and absorber foam for optimum protection and prevention of injury during a sideway fall, fracture or deconditioning.
LEVEL 1 Shield－The outer shell acts like a shield to help protect the hip from direct and strong impact from the hard surface when experiencing a fall.
LEVEL 2 Absorber Foam－The absorber foam material on the hip protector absorbs most of the direct shock impact on the greater trochanter of the humerus, and reduces the risk of fracture. It provides optimal protection in the event of a fall. It helps build confidence for the patient to remain active.
How to use:
Apply on the protector as wearing pants.
Remove the protector component before washing, but be sure to put the parts back together after cleaning. Wash the garment in cold water. Hang dry. Do not bleach. Do not iron. Do not dry clean.
