Hipsaver Open Bottom Veterans High Compliance Pack - 6 open bottom pants with protecting pads permanently sewn in to each pair. 

Effective hip protection gives you confidence in your ability to move safely from place to place, but HipSaver Open Bottom takes protection one step further! Personal underwear and/or incontinence aids slip easily over HipSaver Open Bottom, providing the same effective 24-hour hip protection as other HipSaver products, while making toileting even easier.

HipSaver Open Bottom was designed at the request of nursing staff who saw a need for a hip protection garment that allows residents to wear their familiar underwear and alleviates problems for those with urge incontinence or challenges in removing close fitting garments.

  • HipSaver Open Bottom is hip protection that can be worn close to the body with confidence  
  • HipSaver Open Bottom is latex-free and contains no skin irritants
  • Ultra soft breathable polycotton-spandex allows for a smooth, comfortable fit
  • Wide elastic leg bands are never tight or binding
  • The open crotch design reduces accidents due to the 'fumble factor'

HipSaver Open Bottom is comfortable enough to wear 24 hours a day - even while sleeping. Hip protection pads are soft, thin (just 13mm thick), and tapered to provide effective hip protection with style.

HipSaver Open Bottom is the perfect hip protection for those with Parkinson's and others who experience problems with motor skills or manual dexterity challenges. HipSaver Open Bottom additionally allows nursing staff to provide quicker, easier care for those who need assistance with toileting.

Like all HipSaver products, HipSaver Open Bottom is complete machine washable and dryable to temperatures up to 95°C.

Intro to Hipsavers (01:29)
Introduction to Hipsavers. I am going to assume that you don't know very much about hip protectors so I'll start by showing you the actual hip protector pad that inside of every model of HipSaver. This is the open-cell foam that actually absorbs the energy. This material was invented by NASA and it was originally used to protect astronauts from against G-forces on re-entry to earth atmosphere. It is used in many applications now among them tempera-medic mattresses and pillows. You might be very familiar with those. So we cut the foam to the shape that we need and we put it inside a waterproof airtight pouch. This pouch is what goes into the actual germit one on either side and regardless of the hip protector model that you will see throughout this in-services, the hip pad remains the same. We change the designs of the garments, we change some of the details of the garments those were done to change the effectives and the ease of use for the end user and the caregiving staff. To give you an idea of how the energy is absorbed in this hip protectors, I'll do my little ode to Helen demonstration. Posted on video: Helen is the HipSaver creator's partner. She came up with this golf ball demo. This golf ball, I'll drop on the table and you can see that the energy will be return to me by the table. If you put the hip pad in place and drop it, you can see that the hip pad actually absorbs the energy rather than returning it to the end user. So that is a demonstration on how we avoid having energy transferred to the hip bone and potentially causing a hip fracture.
