"People living with a memory impairing disease are at high risk for falling. We recommend Phoenix Hipwear to our residents living in long term residential care, as an effective tool to reduce the chance of a hip fracture occurring with a fall. Phoenix Hipwear has a superior product and excellent customer service. We strongly recommend them."

"We are excited to partner with Phoenix Hipwear to mitigate fall risks for our residents. We know from research that the risk of hip fracture is reduced by nearly 3-fold by wearing a hip protector at the time of falling.  We also know that, on average, older adults only survive an average of 18 months after a hip fracture occurs. Knowing this, we are pleased to offer Phoenix Hipwear to our residents and families as a critical part of our falls program." Dr Sandi Petersen DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, GNP-BC, PMHNP-BE, FAANP, Senior Vice President of Health and Wellness - Pegasus Senior Living


"It was recommended by a Nurse that my partner would benefit from the Hip Protective underwear. He is in a Care Home, 89yrs and has dementia so has reasonably high risk of a fall. I ordered them online, response was immediate, double checking I had the right size etc.

I was extremely impressed with the service, and the delivery was next day!! Wow!!!

If we can do anything to save our loved ones from injuries I’m all for it.

Thank you Natasha for your helpfulness and amazing service." - Anne B


"I have been using hip protectors for some time, and recently purchased a Women's Starter Pack of the new Phoenix style. The underwear is very comfortable and fits well. The shields look good and are easy to put in the pockets. Once they are in I cannot feel them and wear them all day with my normal clothes. I recently had a fall and wearing hip protectors makes me feel safer." - Glenys (77 yrs old)


"The new Phoenix Hipwear is great for my mother.  Having the ability to change the shields is a game changer.  They've given her peace of mind as well as for me.  Thank you :)" - P Waaka


“So many thanks indeed for your attention to make sure my order was correct. Don’t often get such care. My mother's dementia has not reached “extreme” yet but sometimes not far off. These protectors have, I believe, saved her hips many times.” - John H

"Thank you for providing us a free hip protector for one of our residents. The products fits well (true to size), easy to clean and the shield can easily be removed.

The fabric was thin because it was cotton but is breathable and prevents pressure sore or marks on the skin due to the lining of the underwear, which is so much better compared to the ones that we had before.

It is a great product for our residents who are at risk of fall. Will surely recommend this product for our residents when needed." - Elaine Lactao, Registered Nurse


"Phoenix Hipwear is a quality product, wear is well tolerated by most in comparison to other brands tried. 

Good service with prompt response to enquiries and timely delivery.  Also, no issues with exchange when size / fit has not been right. Thank you." - Petrina MacFarlane, Physiotherapist
