Eco Sound Medical Services to distribute hip protectors
Medical Protection Technologies' Fall-Safe Hip Protectors
The hip protectors are undergarments with pads and shock-absorbing material. However, the material becomes rigid when there is a fall, according to the company.
“Unlike other pads, Fall-Safe Hip Protector pads are concave and sculpted to fit the body, and have grooves and holes for breathability. They also remain soft and flexible until the moment of impact, providing unmatched effectiveness, durability, comfort, and low profile — all keys to successful hip protector program implementation,” said D. Stephen Robins, M.D., CEO of Medical Protection Technologies.
The average cost for inpatient hip fracture care in the U.S. is about $26,000 per episode, not including skilled nursing care, the company noted.
