WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?

Hip Protectors are worn by people to help prevent hip injuries and fractures if they fall. The Pelican Hip Protector Pants come in either a female or male style, and a variety of sizes.  As well as a shape difference, the male style has a fly in them. We use soft foam pads to offer excellent impact absorption. The pads fit into pockets in the sides of the pants. The pads are big enough to give good coverage of the greater trochanter (hip bone).
