Dutch design and development. Tested in a laboratory and by seniors.

Wolk is a Dutch invention that has been developed in collaboration with Delft Technical University. The Wolk development team has tested the Wolk hip airbag extensively for its reduction on the impact of falling, reliability and user-friendliness. These tests were carried out in the laboratory in very tough conditions as well as in real life situations. More than 80 seniors lived with Wolk for a total of more than 1,750 days. These people lived either at home or in care homes and were all happy to use Wolk. During this period, there were 10 falls and Wolk successfully cushioned the fall each time and protected the hip.
Please be careful always, wherever you go. No airbag can protect you from every fall and prevent (serious) injury at all times.
