How do I go about when ordering SafeHip as a contract customer?
Some local government agencies and municipalities subsidize hip trousers, meaning that they can be ordered free of charge. In other municipalities, the end user may receive their first hip trouser free of charge but must pay for additional ones themselves. In still other places, the end user must pay for the full value of all trousers themselves. At NordiCare, we strive to make it easy to order the SafeHip, regardless of which system is applicable to your situation:
