Hip Abduction Orthosis (hip brace)

A hip abduction orthosis or hip brace is a brace used to treat hip dysplasia in infants.

Features

  • Effectiveness of the hip abduction orthosis or hip brace is based on the principle of using the seated squat position with flexion in excess of 90° combined with moderate abduction.
  • Reproducible hip flexion setting allows for adjustment using beaded cords and simple closures.
  • Abduction can be adjusted using the spreader bar.
  • Easy handling.

Indications

  • A hip abduction orthosis or hip brace is used to treat hip dysplasia in infants (types IIa and IIb hips according to Graf).
  • When monitored by an experienced orthopedist at frequent intervals, a hip abduction orthosis can also be used in cases of instable or decentered hips (types IIc and IId according to Graf).

Post-operative hip braces

A post-operative hip brace stabilises the hip joint and restricts rotation.

Harder braces are used to stabilise the hip/pelvic area in such a way as to partially immobilise the hip/pelvic area. A post-operative hip brace is also suitable for post-surgery use.

Post-operative hip braces are available in a range of styles and sizes.
