Reducing the risk of hip fractures in the elderly, or for post operative care. The Hipshield can help to prevent a fall becoming an injury and is designed to absorb and deflect impact away from the hipbone. The Hipshield itself is discreet and comfortable to wear and inside the protector is a lightweight honeycomb structure that compresses on impact. The Hipshield just slips into a pair of protector pants and is unobtrusive beneath skirts or trousers.
Pants are available in two styles, male and female, in six sizes based on waist measurement. Made of 95% cotton, each pair has internal pockets that you simply 'slip? the Hip protector into before putting on the garment.
- Suitable for day or nightwear the Hipshield is available in single or triple packs.
- The triple pack contains three knickers/pants plus two Hip protectors.
- The single pack contains one knickers/pants plus two Hip protectors.
- The perfect solution, one pair to wear, one in the wash and one spare!
The Hipshield protectors should be hand washed with warm soapy water and be left to dry. This normally takes around 10 minutes. The Undergarments may be washed by hand or in a washing machine at 60 or less.

Important Note: It does NOT include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb.
What proof do we need to provide?
In order to waive VAT on your purchase, the government requires a simple self declaration to be made as to the nature of your disability at the time of ordering. No proof of your disability need be shown to any party at any time.
Its very easy to claim VAT relief, all we need to know is the name, address & disability of the person the item is for & what there chronic sickness or disability is. We don’t need a doctor’s letter or any reference numbers.
Which Items are eligible?
VAT Exemption only applies to certain items; these are items which have been designed to be used by someone who is chronically sick or disabled. Examples of such products are Mobility Scooters, Wheelchairs, Bath Lifts & many more daily living aids.

We do NOT decide if an item is or isn’t exempt & we don’t make any more or less money if we charge you VAT or we don’t charge you VAT.
If you do not complete the VAT exemption form, or you are not eligible for VAT relief, we are obliged to charge you VAT on the whole of your order.
If you fail to return any VAT exemption forms to us we WILL charge your card for the outstanding VAT.
