People over 85 suffer falls every year


Care home residents, 10 times more likely to sustain injury

Sadly 1 in 2 people over the age of 85 suffer falls every year.  Care home residents are 3 times more likely to fall than their peers in the community and 10 times more likely to sustain a significant injury.

Now, RibCap, one of Europe’s leading safety headwear brands for people of all ages who are subject to head injuries, is tackling the problem head-on and introducing its products to the UK residential care home sector.

RibCap’s ethos has always been to provide fashionably designed soft, yet protective headwear, free of the stigma of wearing traditional shell helmets or skull-caps.

Trusted by international neurological associations, now care home residents can be equipped with a protective solution that prevents head-injuries in and around the care home environment, and further enhances health and safety measures.

As the exclusive distributor in the UK, Gel Ovations is ideally placed through our vast experience of serving care homes with pressure ulcer prevention products, to spearhead supplying RibCap to further improve resident safety levels.
