Prevent Products Inc. has introduced new hip protectors with PPI-RAP™ (Rapid Absorption Polymer), a new foam technology that rapidly absorbs impact shock.

The foam offers 60% more protection and the pads are are 40% thinner. They also have antimicrobial product protection that protects against germs, the company said.

The new technology helps absorb energy at impact but is soft when at rest.
