California Hip System

California Hip System

  • Price: £0.00
  • This product needs to be applied by a trained clinician and cannot be purchased direct, please contact Customer Services for further information

Indications for use
  • Post-op revision patients who have undergone a surgical procedure and need an orthosis until the component is integrated and soft tissue heals
  • Adult patients with CVA, spinal cord injuries or head trauma can benefit from the California Hip with bilateral thigh cuffs to widen the base of support in standing and sitting
  • Patients who have been non-compliant with rigid plastic hip orthoses
  • Patients whose cognitive function impairs their ability to follow hip precautions
  • Patients with weak hip abductors who need a kinesthetic cue and positioning to prevent dislocation
  • Elderly patients confined to bed who are at risk for dislocation
Features and benefits
  • Comfortable, total-contact reinforced mesh pelvic component based on the popular California Compression Orthosis supports the back and aligns pelvis and hip joint
  • Universal pelvic, thigh and hip joint components reduce inventory and make stocking all sizes more cost efficient
  • Hip joint settings provide a strong fl exion/ extension stop with mild, adjustable resistance to adduction
  • Comfortable mesh thigh component
  • Patient-adjustable compression to increase comfort during activities of daily living
  • Abduction wedge regulates the clearance of the hip joint over the trochanter and incision site
  • Lightweight, low profi le components are easier to wear under clothing which can increase patient compliance and wearing time

Contra-indications

  • Severely unstable hips that need signifi cant control of adduction may require a more restrictive orthosis, e.g., Newport 3 or Newport 4
  • Patients with two or more previous dislocations may benefit more from a rigid plastic Newport hip system
  • Hip replacement patients with poor alignment of the pelvis/ acetabulum
  • Patients requiring a KAFO attachment may need a more rigid pelvic band to enhance control of internal/ external rotation and adduction/abduction.
