28L10 Tubingen hip flexion and abduction orthosis
The Tubingen hip flexion and abduction orthosis has proved successful in the treatment of hip dysplasia in infants for more than 25 years. Flexion of the hip joints in excess of 90° with controlled medium abduction is conducive to maturation of infant hips under conditions similar to those in utero. Parents especially appreciate the fact that this treatment method does not limit their baby’s freedom of movement. This means the motor development of the child can proceed normally. Soft pads and hook and loop closures ensure that the orthosis is comfortable to wear.
The advantages of the hip flexion and abduction orthosis at a glance:
- Secure positioning of the hips in natural spread-squat position.
- Individual and reproducible flexion and abduction settings possible.
- Secure and uncomplicated application.
- Soft padding for enhanced wearer comfort.
- Water resistant.

The child’s hip is positioned in the desired spread-squat position using the spreader bar and the combination of the thigh support with the shoulder harness. This allows the hip joint to mature.
The orthosis is easy to put on and take off. The red closures are adjusted exclusively by a physician or O&P professional.
The beaded cords are colour-coded. This is for orientation so that the settings can be easily found again once they have been established.
The shoulder harness with comfortable padding is easy to put on using the hook and loop closure.
