Frequently Asked Questions
What are body pads?

People with certain conditions may be vulnerable to damaging the boney, sensitive areas of the human body.

There are a range of pads designed to fit different parts of the body, protecting the user in the areas most at risk.

Who might use body pads?

Some elderly people develop fragile skin which is easily broken after minor collisions with hard objects.

Other conditions may lead to the boney areas becoming sensitive to pressure.

Are boney-parts protectors available for the elbows and ankles?

The pads here are made for specific parts of the body.

If you want to guard against damage to the point of the elbow or the bony parts of the ankle, specific pads for that purpose are available.

They are also useful for reducing the risk of pressure sores for people spending prolonged periods in bed or in unmoved positions.

What are body pads made of?

Most pads have foam interiors, providing padding properties and also being light in weight.

Other pads have gel-filled pockets, increasing the protection against any pressure build-up which might lead to the development of sores or skin lesions.

Both real wool and synthetic fleece materials are commonly used.

Again, these are light in weight and provide good protection against minor collisions which might otherwise break the skin.

How do body pads and boney parts protectors attach to the body?

Body pads are worn in a variety of ways.

Some styles, particularly the fleecy items, fix with loose fitting velcro straps. Many foot and heel protectors have this design.

This has the benefit of being universal in size. However, it is important to check their measurements to confirm they will fit.

Other body pads, like those with gel inserts, tend to be worn like sock-style knee supports.

They are made from elasticated materials which hug the area of the body tightly enough to stay in place.

Are protectors for the hips available?

Damage to the hips can be a serious problem for some people.

Pads designed specifically to protect the hip bones are built-in to side panels of special underwear.

They fit over the often-vulnerable parts of the hips known as the trochanteric areas.

Are there pads to make car seatbelts more comfortable?

There are specific fleece pads which fit to a car’s safety belt, softening the area which contacts the upper body.
