In an abstract presented at the Interdisciplinary Symposium on Osteoporosis, Impactactive Hip Protectors was compared to other well-known hip protectors and it was confirmed that Impactactive are the smallest, lightest, and thinnest shield of all the designs evaluated saying, “this same design exhibited impact performance at levels similar to other larger, heavier, and thicker designs”.

IMPACTACTIVE USES SOFTSHIELD TECHNOLOGY.
Impactactive shields are soft, lightweight and flexible for comfortable and discreet every day wear. Testing completed at an independent biomechanical laboratory has shown Impactactive shields reduce the force of impact.
The shields are soft, light and flexible for absolute comfort and thin enough to be virtually invisible under clothing.
At the moment of impact the shield momentarily stiffens to form a protective shell to absorb and deflect the impact force.
Once the impact is over, the shields instantly become soft, light and flexible again.
At less than ½ inch thick and weighing less than 2 ounces, the sewn in shields are designed to comfortably wrap around the hip area without being bulky.
Soft and lightweight, the unique molding of SoftShield Technology™ enables the protective shields to flex and form with your body. The large range of sizes are designed to help position the shields in the correct place over the greater trochanter.
Wash and wear convenience. Simply wear, wash and dry just like any other underwear. The whole garment can be washed and tumble dried without having to remove the shields.

“I was introduced to Impactactive by a staff member at the community where my mother lives...as soon as I saw the Impactactive underwear I knew this was the right product for Mom! The hip protectors are not bulky and do not show under clothing.
I feel much more at peace now knowing that my Mom is protected should she fall”
