Hip & Hernia
Hip fractures are now one of the main reasons why the elderly are referred to nursing homes. Hip protection garments such as the unisex underwear we offer are and inexpensive and effective measure in the prevention of hip fractures for those at risk of falls.
A hernia is typicaly caused by protrusion of an internal structure through a weak point in the muscle wall or surrounding structure. They can occur in many parts of the body with the most common being around the groin (inguinal) or abdominal region.
Some hernia’s have no apparent cause whilst others can be attributed to heavy lifting, pregnancy, or obesity amongst other factors. Our popular products such as trusses, briefs, pants, boxer shorts and binders are indicated for use with all types of hernia; both pre and post surgery, inguinal hernia containment and post childbirth.
