Hip’Safe is a new way to protect seniors from hip fractures in their daily life. We did our best to create the perfect device that suits most of seniors. Unfortunately we can’t find a solution adapted for everyone (at least not this version).
To see if the device is adapted for you or not, please answer to these questions.
GREEN for YES and RED for NO !
If you have any doubts, more questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
HOW OLD ARE YOU ?
MORE THAN 65 YEARS OLD
The algorithm was made according to the movements of people aged above 65 years old and with mobility troubles.
LESS THAN 65 YEARS OLD
The device is not adapted for people below 65 years old because if the person is very active, the system could inflate unexpectedly.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE ?
IN A NURSING HOME
The device is perfectly adapted for people living in a nursing home.
AT HOME WITH HELP
The device is adapted, if the person has regular visit from carers or family (at least once a week.)
AT HOME WITHOUT HELP
The device may be not adapted, if the person doesn’t have regular visits (less than once a week) from his family or carers to help him with the belt.
DO YOU PRACTICE SPORT ?
NO, I DON’T PRACTICE SPORT
The device is adapted to protect seniors on their daily activities such as going for a walk, going the supermarket, gardening …
YES, I PRACTICE SPORT
The device is not adapted for sports : bicycle, horse-riding, skiing …
HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU FALL IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS ?
NEVER BUT NOT CONFIDENT / BETWEEN 1 AND 10 TIMES
The device is completely adapted to people that fall time to time. It will help them to get more confidence in their daily walk.
MORE THAN 10 TIMES
Unfortunately, the device is not adapted to people who fall a lot. The gas cartridge have to be changed after each fall and the price for one cartridge is 50 € so that this solution would be very expensive.
DO YOU NEED SOME HELP TO WALK ?
NOTHING / WALKER / CAN
Hip’Safe can be worn on its own to get more confidence but also in addition to a can or a walker to make movements safers.
Hip’Safe is not adapted for wheel chair uses because it won’t inflate well when teh person is seated.
DO YOU HAVE A DEGENERATIVE DISEASE?
The device is perfect for people with balance troubles and for those who need a tool to feel more confident in their daily life.
It is also perfect for people recovering from a hip fracture.
ALZHEIMER , PARKINSON
The device is not adapted for people that fall everyday and should be understood by the user. Otherwise, it won’t be effective : high cost and high unexpected inflation risks.
