Canadian Association of Occupational Therapy gets Comfi!

We are exhibiting at the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapy (CAOT) Conference in Victoria, B.C. We have met so many OT’s from Fraser Health  who love ComfiHips® and want to use them but have questioned why Fraser Health won’t allow them to. 

FHCA Gets Comfi!

Yesterday at the Nurse Leadership Conference, Sue Ann Guildermann gave an exceptional educational lecture about fall prevention. She spoke about how to determine the right hip protector to use by looking at impact studies and user compliance studies.

ComfiHips® amazed every person that came by the booth on Wednesday! Its user compliance study shows that it reduced hip fractures to less than 1/4 of 1% of 818 falls! Also an impact study showing that ComfiHips® not only is superior to the other hip protectors it was tested against it actually absorbs more impact the harder someone falls down!

What Causes a Fall?

As we age, our body undergoes a lot of physical changes. We think that our movement and our senses are still the same as they were when we were younger, but our body atrophies over time.

Some things that become less acute as we age are:

*Reflexes to balance ourselves

The aging of these senses can lead to a fall and inevitably a hip fracture. If you have any of these problems visit us at and let us protect you in case you fall!

I am Falling for You!

According to the CDC, it was reported that 55% of falls occur in the home. This is because there are so many risk factors at our homes that we do not think about until it is too late. According to the Florida Department of Health, fall related injuries are the leading cause of emergency room visits per year in the state. ComfiHips® was designed to help prevent these injuries in case you fall. It is the newest technology in hip fracture prevention with up to 87.2% impact absorption on a lateral fall!

*Falling is the primary cause of accidental death of people over 65.
*90% of hip fractures occur due to a fall.
*Quality of life is dramatically reduced if you survive a hip fracture.

Protect yourself from a fall related injury with the newest technology in hip protectors: ComfiHips®. It is lightweight, high impact absorbing, and affordable.

What is a Newton of Force?

In an impact study done at SUNY Cortland, ComfiHips® outperformed two other leading hip protectors that it was tested against at both 7,500 Newtons and 10,000 Newtons of force.

What does all this mean? Some studies show that the average person falls with a force between 5,000 and 8,000 Newtons. Other studies state that people fall with a much higher force. ComfiHips® pads absorbed the 7,500 Newtons and 10,000 Newtons of force to below the hip fracture threshold.

According to an expert kick boxer can generate up to 9000 Newtons of force! So imagine a kick boxer giving you his best hit and you don't feel most of the force because you are wearing ComfiHips®! We are saving people's lives by abosrbing most of the impact from a lateral fall.

National Falls Prevention Awareness Day

The Senate recently passed a bill declaring September 22, 2013 National Falls Prevention Day.  They want to promote and increase public awareness about how to prevent and reduce falls among older adults.

Falls are becoming so common that one out of every three adults over the age of 65 will fall each year. “Fall prevention programs are a solid investment that save people’s lives…” said Kohl, Chairman of the Senate Special Committee on Aging.

Why not protect yourself with ComfiHips®? It was designed with an impact study by the University of Florida. ComfiHips® pads are so light weight that you forget you are wearing them over your hips! For more information on how you can protect yourself from a fall, visit us at

Famous last words: “I won’t fall.”

Statistics are in for just the state of Florida. In 2008 alone, the reported number of falls in each age group is dramatically more than any other related injury. This information can be found on the Department of Health website for Florida.

Here are the numbers for falls that resulted in an emergency department visit: for ages 65 – 74 (31,268 falls), 75 – 84 (41,924 falls), 85+ (34,682 falls).

The next closest reported injury is Moving Traffic -any occupant in the car. Here are these numbers: for ages 65 – 74 (5,834 injuries), 75 – 84 (3,367 injuries), 85+ (949 injuries).

So by these numbers you are at least10 times more likely to fall down and go to the emergency room than being injured in a car accident!

ComfiHips® is here to protect you!

At a major long term care facility that has 387 beds, the year they began wearing  ComfiHips®, their hip fractures were reduced to less than ¼ of 1% on 818 falls! Amazing statistics!

Protect yourself, protect your friends, protect everybody you know with the pad you trust: ComfiHips®!
