Function Hip abduction orthoses
Cosa Junior hip abduction orthosis: inconspicuously effective

The Cosa Junior hip abduction orthosis supports children with neuromuscular diseases. It is specially tailored to very young users and thus designed without a zip. Besides spastic diplegia and hip dysplasia, another area of application is congenital·hip joint subluxation.

The advantages of the Cosa Junior at a glance:

  • It covers the size range from 80 to 116 (corresponds to child sizes 74 to 122 cm).
  • For patients with a scissor gait, the orthosis prevents the knees from crossing.
  • Padding between the legs can reduce hip adduction, which, along with improved torso control, also stabilises the standing and sitting base.
  • Thanks to this orthosis, ambulatory users can use less energy to cover greater distances.
  • In addition, the improved pelvic symmetry and increased freedom of movement for the knees supports a physiological gait.
  • The Cosa Junior is also helpful for wheelchair users, as the orthosis makes additional wheelchair abductors unnecessary: By wearing this orthosis patients gain not only a wider seating position, but also greater freedom for their hands.
  • The orthosis is individually adaptable, soft and low-maintenance.
