Hip guard / protective appliance

Hip guard

With the growth of age, the bones of the elderly gradually become slack, and many elderly people cause hip sprains and even fractures every year. This kind of protective equipment has the functions of protecting buttocks and correcting body posture. Three-dimensional cutting of the back according to the principles of ergonomics and anatomy, combined with acupuncture and acupoint magnetic therapy, has the functions of relieving waist pain. Hip pads can effectively reduce falls and injuries of the elderly.
