Rated five stars for efficacy and superior comfort

As a Clinical Nurse Specialist my experience with clients is the loss in confidence they have upon falling and sustaining an injury. At the recommendation of a colleague, our falls prevention programs suggested the use of Hip Protectors for our clients to overcome these barriers to a full recovery. I was apprehensive about their efficacy and effectiveness, as well as compliance with our clients. However, Hornsby Comfy Hips hygienic, soft silicone design and comfy fit put my concerns to rest. They are now a staple in our falls prevention program, reinvigorating our clients who have sustained an injury due to a fall with the confidence to move again and have produced no hip fractures or related injuries in clients wearing Hornsby Comfy Hip protectors.

Sarah Kerr | Clinical Nurse Specialist

Throughout my long career as a senior clinical nurse, participation in our falls program and patient compliance with Hip Protectors was a herculean task.

We tried a number of different varieties however it was Hornsby Comfy Hips protectors that put these problems to bed. Their protectors were so comfortable that all our patients that even needed to sleep in them did not complain. A pleasure to use from start to finish and not a hip fracture recorded on a patient wearing Hornsby Comfy Hips protectors.

Lesley Smith | Retired Registered Nurse

When my late Husband entered care, it was insisted that he needed support and it was recommended that I contact Hornsby Comfy Hips for hip protectors.

The team were courteous, friendly and helpful to meet his needs. A stubborn man his entire life, he never once complained and insisted they were comfortable to wear. I am confident that Hornsby Comfy Hips hip protectors improved the quality of his life

Speak to a person not a machine!

Ordered pants for my father in law in WA and they organised the DVA approval, contacted the nursing home and had it all done in less than a week.

Cannot recommend them highly enough!

Luigia Kerr | Customer

Within 10 mins of placing my order online (on a Saturday), I received a call from James to check my on order.

When I asked they could post directly to My Dad in NZ rather than to me in Brisbane, there was no hesitation at all.

Ahh-mazing customer service!

Jacqui Sharman | Customer

When Dad had a fall over Christmas we braced for the worst!

Thank goodness he was wearing his HCH Hip Protectors and walked away unscathed!
