Hip protectors are a specific type of underwear or pants that have padding (either hard or soft) along the outside of each hip and leg. These pads are designed to prevent hip fractures in the event of a fall. Hip protectors can come in the shape of either pants or underwear.
The usage of double-sided sticky films that are breathable and more pleasant to wear than specialized pants is a recent invention that has come about as a result of these films. The fact that the adhesive films can be worn when showering, bathing, or using the restroom makes them a safer option.
Hip protectors are most typically worn by elderly people because of their increased likelihood of experiencing hip fractures as a result of falling (for example, due to a history of a previous fall and underlying osteoporosis).
