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.
