Hip Protectors

Medical devices that protect people from fall related hip fractures and injuries have been on the market for many years. Hard shell hip protectors have very low user compliance because of their bulkiness and people do not feel comfortable wearing them. Soft shell hip protectors are more comfortable but have very low impact absorption because they are simply a piece of foam.

The newest technology in hip protectors is here: ComfiHips®! Our pads were designed in conjuction with the University of Florida Department of BioMechanics. They were designed with three goals in mind: high impact absorption, very high user compliance, and affordability. When wearing ComfiHips®, you will feel comfortable and have an ease of mind that you are protected from a possible fall related injury.

In fact, since ComfiHips® has been on the market, we have not had one return or complaint! Why??? Because our main feedback from our customers has been: I feel more secure when I wear ComfiHips® and I forget that I am wearing ComfiHips® because they are so light weight!

Osteoporosis is a decrease in bone mineral density that makes you very susceptible to fractures and falling. There are various severities of this disease and people who have it, need to take every precautionary measure to protect themselves.

Lifestyle changes must be made to avoid a possible fracture if you have osteoporosis. Diet, exercise, strengthening your balance and using a hip protector to protect you against injuries when you fall are great ways of intervention. ComfiHips® is here to protect you. Our pads not only absorb up to 87.2% of impact from a lateral fall, they actually absorb more impact the harder someone falls!

If you have any more questions about how to protect yourself, please visit us at for more information and how to contact us.

Light Up The House

Many people use lights that are on a switch. If we have to get up in the middle of the night for any reason, sometimes it is very difficult to find that light switch. Place night lights around the house so you are never unsure of where you are walking.

One common way people fall is because of getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, yet there are no lights on. Place night lights around the house, they produce enough light to see the floor when the main house lights are off. ComfiHips® is also there to protect you, day and night. In case you do fall, our hip protector will absorb most of the impact so hopefully you avoid a severe injury and even a hip fracture.

Father's Day

This past Sunday was Father's Day, a day that family comes together to celebrate the man of the house. Let's make sure that our fathers do not fall this coming year by giving them tips on balance, education, and staying active.

Balance - Look at your father when he walks, does he have trouble? Try observing how he stands or turns the corner. If he does not look like he is doing this properly, then contact a physical therapist or an occupational therapist to help strengthen his balance so he can walk better.

Education - A fall related injury is the #1 reason why people visit the emergency room in the United States according to the CDC. ComfiHips® is reducing the probability of hip fractures and severe injuries to those who wear them.

Staying Active - As we age, we become more sedentary in our lifestyles. Try getting your father out of the house and do an activity that everyone can enjoy. Putt putt golf, bowling, or going to a park are all great ideas on how to keep our fathers moving.

NADONA in Las Vegas

This past week, ComfiHips® was featured at the National Director of Nursing Conference in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada! People from all over the United States were being introduced to the newest technology in hip protectors on the market.
Iris Onrot - co-inventor of ComfiHips® and featured in the picture - explained to the Directors of Nursing along with VP's of Clinical Services at the conference, what separates ComfiHips® from all other hip protectors.

At the end of every presentation, the reaction people gave her was astounding. Not only were they impressed with our over whelming statistics, amazing user compliance, and proven high impact absorption... they could not believe she had them on and they could not see it! She said, "I wear ComfiHips® at the conference to show people how stream line the pads are in our undergarments. People do not want to wear a bulky hip protector but they want the reassurance to know they are protected in case they fall."

Balance Me or Balance Beam?

When was the last time you tried to stand on one foot for 30 seconds? It is harder than you think. As we get older our balance and stability becomes an issue due to a decrease in flexibility, muscle weakness and decreased response time which can cause a fall. ComfiHips® protects you when your balance is not as good as it used to be. Even when you are trying to strengthen your balance, there is still a high chance of falling. Wear the hip protector that is trusted by its thousands of users: ComfiHips®.

Aging Part 2

One of the main reasons a fall can occur is that our response time slows down. Remember when we used to slip on water or ice and be able to catch ourselves? As we age our body begins to break down and we don’t have the agility that we used to when we were in our 20’s. Protect yourself with ComfiHips®; it has been proven to reduce the probability of experiencing an injury from a fall.
