A Brief History
The HealthSaver story began in 1999 when Brisbane based Ian Lancaster discovered a brand new product developed in the USA by bio-mechanical engineer Ed Goodwin. It was a revolutionary comfortable and soft hip protector to aid in the prevention of hip fractures especially in the elderly. After many conversations between Ian and Ed it was agreed Ian would introduce HipSaver to the Australian market.
Within four years HipSaver had become the market leading hip protector not only in Australia but around the world, and remains so to this day. A few years later, following the huge success of HipSaver, Ed Goodwin developed a never before seen frail skin protection textile called DermaSaver which has amazing protection properties, and of course Ian Lancaster was pleased to introduce a revolutionary product into the Australian market once again. It was at this time it was decided to change the company name from HipSaver to HealthSaver to allow the addition of more products to its range.
