Tubingen hip flexion and abduction orthosis
Reference number 28L10
Modelled on nature – Tubingen hip flexion and abduction orthosis for infants

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.
