Smarthip designs healthcare devices for senior people to help them avoid hip fractures when falling. The product is a revolutionary hip protector that the user can wear under her clothes without anyone noticing. The protecting part of the product, the fitted airbags, are positioned on the user’s hips, inside soft and comfortable midlayer pants. The airbags will automatically deploy on both sides and reduce the impact on the user’s hip bones when falling down. There is a smart algorithm measuring the movement of the user with three different sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. When the sensors detect the user falling the CO2 cartridges will release gas into the airbags, softening the landing.
We at Smarthip understand the frustration of wearing visible and clumsy protective clothing. We want to make the user feel confident and independent, so that they would have the courage to stay active and feel safe. This is why we make the protective parts thin and invisible, and focus on the comfort of the user. With the luxurious choice for fabrics, our goal is to make Smarthip the user’s favorite pants.
