SafeHip Active Belt Hip Protector – Unisex
Terms Of Service
I use this when riding my bicycle or using my push-scooter for exercise and errands. After falling over on my bike last year I figured I'd pad up since at my age I don't want a broken hip. I haven't fallen over since then and even if I did, who knows if a non-fractured state would be because of this, since it's never happened before. But it can't hurt and might help. What I like is the convenience and fit. I got the X-large and it goes on quickly over my jeans and belt since it has a velcro overlap. There is stretch in the thing which is nice because I have a phone pouch on my belt. I am currently wearing a men's size 36 jean with a quarter inch leather belt and the hip protector goes on comfortably. It is beginning to stretch a bit after about 40 trips or so, but still works. When it gets too stretchy it would be doable to put in a dart in a non-vital place. So I give it 5 stars for convenience, fit, and longevity.
Easy to order, quick delivery product is as described.
Product will be used for a geriatric gentleman who falls often. This product protects his hip.
I find this comfortable to wear, and it gives me great peace of mind as I have osteoporosis and balance problems. My osteoporosis specialist recommended it. It seems expensive but not compared to a broke hip.
Fit is very good.
