The Lower the Number, the Greater the Protection

ProtectaHip® hip protectors are engineered for optimal safety wet or dry. Others use foams that rupture when wet and require Warning Labels. Compare Plum’s Number to the other brands: Plum’s number is as low as 79, compared with 212.5 and 341.5 That’s how much more impact energy is reaching the hip. A number above 200 is dangerous.

While no hip protector can guarantee protection from all impacts or injuries, Plum is committed to engineering only the highest quality of materials for safety effectiveness, rugged dependability, and lightweight comfort.

Plum’s ProtectaHip® Hip Protector Pads are fire-retardant and self-extinguishing, for the safety of patients, caregivers and nursing homes. Other brands catch fire and keep burning.
