The Hip Protector Access Pants are based on our standard design, but have a large cut-out section to allow access for an incontinence pad to be worn over the top of the Hip Protector Access Pants. This means that if the incontinence pad needs to be changed, the Carer can change only the incontinence pad, without the need to change the Hip Protector Access Pants, thus minimizing the amount of manual handling required. Another advantage of this product is that they may be worn underneath normal underwear and if the person wants to go to the toilet, they need only remove the normal underwear and can leave the Hip Protector Access Pants in place when they are on the toilet. This may be a time when Hip Protectors are required as getting on to and off the toilet may be a difficult transition for some people. The Pelican Hip Protector Pants have two pockets sewn on to the polycotton underpants. The material used in the pockets is designed to allow the skin to breathe. The Hip Pad pockets are big enough to move the Hip Protector Pads up or down, or side to side in the Pockets. This gives some flexibility to correctly locate the Pads over the Greater Trochanter. The Black Foam on the inside of the Pads helps to keep the Pads slightly off the body to allow some air circulation between the Pad and the Hip. Another benefit of the Black Foam is to grip the pocket material and keep the Pads in position. However if a restless person moves the Pads, it is possible to simply sew the pocket to keep the Pads in the correct position. Use a ?ball tip? needle to avoid cutting the threads of the polycotton pants material. Like all brands of Hip Protector Pants, the Pants may be inadvertently repositioned when being worn. It is advisable to periodically check that the Pads are still located correctly over the Greater Trochanter. Many falls occur during the night when people get out of bed to go to the toilet in an unlit room. The Pelican Hip Protectors give protection in case the wearer gets out of bed during the night and falls. As the Pants may be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, pay attention to the skin integrity under the Pad area. Factors such as the weather, or a person?s chemical make-up may affect the skin. It is recommended to have some time without wearing the Pads to allow the skin to ?breathe?. If this becomes a serious problem, it may be better not to wear the Pants. This type of problem could occur with any brand of hip protectors.
