The elastic waistband and large leg openings make the HipSaver Nursing Home brief easy to pull on and off. The full, soft, fabric crotch perfectly accommodates liners or diapers. And the entire unit can be washed and dried at institution regulation temperatures (up to 250°F/121°C).

HipSaver® QuickChange™ Snap-down panel for a quick pad or liner change — with just two snaps!
HipSaver QuickChange gives you all the features and benefits of HipSaver Nursing Home with a “snap-down” front crotch panel that allows incontinence pad/liner changes — all without having to pull the brief down. Simply unsnap the crotch panel, shift the QuickChange up on the patient’s waist, change the pad, liner or diaper, shift back into position and fasten the two crotch panel snaps. Perfect for changing residents, even while they are standing.
Snap-on and snap-off with proven HipSaver protection!
The HipSaver Wrap&Snap unsnaps completely to eliminate pull-up and pull-down dressing. Perfect for hard-to-dress residents or those who require frequent changing. And, unlike competitive products, the Wrap&Snap comes with reinforced snaps for extra durability and protective pads that are 40% larger and tapered for comfort. Best of all, with the Wrap&Snap you won’t need an extra pair of hands to snap it back together!
Specially designed for seniors at home and great for outpatients or those residents who reject the look of the institution models.
Effective hip protection that’s so discreet — it’s invisible!
Made of light-stretch, polycotton with form-fitting Lycra, HipSaver SlimFit looks good, feels good — and pulls on just like regular underwear. It’s lightweight and flexible enough for walking, golf, tennis, skiing and other sports — and comfortable enough for everyday wear!
Best of all, HipSaver SlimFit actually protects hips better than bulky or hard-shell protectors. So it’s ideal for fashion-conscious and active elders who are at risk of hip fracture, but reject uncomfortable and obvious hip protection products.
NEW! Open crotch design for easy toileting.
The HipSaver Open-Bottom can be put on once and left on all day and all night. The totally open crotch allows the wearer to use the toilet without having to pull the HipSaver down. It’s the perfect hip protector for those who may need to suddenly and quickly use the toilet — no fumbling!
HipSaver® Open-Bottom™ 3-Snap
The new HipSaver Open Bottom 3- Snap is the perfect solution to make it easy to change incontinence products while reducing soiling of the HipSaver.
While the original HipSaver Open-Bottom works great for residents who are self-toileting, the new HipSaver Open Bottom 3-Snap is worn OVER incontinence products. With just 3 snaps, incontinence products can be changed quickly. And because the crotch area is totally open, there is less chance of soiling the HipSaver. With less soiling you won’t have to change the HipSaver as often.
HipSaver® EZ Pull-up™ Handles
Help for those with weakened grip-strength.
Make HipSaver protection easier than ever for residents who dress themselves. Add new HipSaver EZ Pull-up Handles to any HipSaver SlimFit or Nursing Home model and give the wearer easy-to-grasp handles for opening and pulling the brief up. Designed for residents without the grip-strength to grab a waistband, EZ Pull-up Handles are just what many residents need to be able to continue to dress themselves.
HipSaver is proven in both biomechanical testing and clinical studies. HipSaver’s biomechanical test results from 2 prestigious Universities are superior to hard shell hip protectors. A two-year published study reported a zero percent fracture rate in 199 falls of high risk elderly individuals. A 13-month long study also using HipSavers reported a 93% compliance rate and no hip fractures in 126 falls.
When evaluating a hip protector, be sure that testing is executed by professional University staff representatives using clinically accepted protocols. Also, ask for copies of clinical studies to ascertain that the studies cited refer to that specific brand and not hip protectors in general.
HipSaver pads are all soft, thin and tapered — designed for maximum comfort to increase compliance rates while offering proven protection. Six sizes ensure proper fit.
HipSaver’s sewn-in pads are more convenient. Sewn-in pads can’t get lost during laundering or be removed by residents. Sewn-in pads are more cost effective — which reduce labor time inserting and removing.
Machine wash & dry at high temperatures
HipSavers are designed to be machine washed and dried in institution laundries-up to 250°F
