Hip Orthosis

You may need to wear a hip brace during recovery when you’ve had hip or pelvic surgery or an injury. There are hip stabilizers and hip braces. These are both types of hip orthotics.

Hip disorders affect the hip joint, impacting thigh movement and your ability to support the weight of your body. In many instances, these disorders can cause pain and discomfort.

Common conditions that require wearing a hip brace:

  • 1. Hip fracture
  • 2. Hip dysplasia
  • 3. Osteoarthritis
  • 4. Hip dislocation
  • 5. Femoral head resection
  • 6. Hip replacement recovery
  • 7. Post-operative hip revision

In addition to stabilization, hip braces provide compression to your body. Compression helps increase blood flow and reduces swelling. This keeps the joints warm, flexible and safe.

Hip Abduction Braces

Often the dysplastic hip of a newborn baby goes back into the socket very easily because the mother’s relaxing hormones are still in the baby. Doctors will normally use the least aggressive treatment they can to achieve the desired outcome.

Dislocated or unstable hips in newborn infants can easily be realigned. Usually, a hip abduction brace or Pavlik harness is used that holds the legs in a better position for the hip while the socket and ligaments become more stable. This encourages normal development of the hip joint.

Hip abduction braces are also commonly used immediately following treatments involving a spica cast. Usually, in-bracing helps to reintroduce more range of motion to the hips while the hip is growing and becoming more stable.

These Braces include a virtual Pediatric Joint, which enhances hip stability by supporting and positioning the hips in optimal alignment while allowing a controlled range of motion. The hip orthosis can be used post-operatively to maintain the corrected surgical position or can be provided to maximize function during activities of daily living. Improved alignment through the hip encourages appropriate acetabular and femoral modelling and reduces the tendency for subluxation and dislocation.

Reciprocating Gait Orthosis (RGO)

A reciprocating gait orthosis (RGO) is a full-body orthotic device that consists of a hip-knee-ankle-foot orthosis(HKAFO), a custom moulded pelvic girdle and a thoracic extension.

An RGO can be used to treat people with paralysis due to spinal cord injury or other neurological diseases, including spina bifida.

An RGO can enable patients with lower-body weakness or paralysis to stand upright unassisted and walk with the help of crutches or a walker. The Knee ankle-foot orthosis (KAFO) section immobilizes the knees and ankles to allow the patient to balance the body in a standing position while the RGO section allows hip motion and pelvic rotation that imitates a functional walking gait.

At Xtremity, we utilize Hip reciprocating joint from different manufacturers and then attach it to a custom build pelvic section and KAFO (with different joint options)
