28L101 Cosa Active

28L101 Cosa Active
Reference number 28L101
Function Hip abduction orthoses
Cosa Active hip abduction orthosis: inconspicuously effective

The Cosa Active supports patients with neuromuscular diseases. It has been designed as an adult version with a zip. Besides spastic diplegia and hip dysplasia, another area of application is congenital·hip joint subluxation.

By using pads between the legs, the Cosa Active helps to significantly reduce hip adduction. For users, this means improved torso control and stabilisation of the standing and sitting base.

The advantages of the Cosa Active at a glance:

  • The orthosis is available in sizes from 128 up to unisex size L (women’s 46 and men’s 54).
  • 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, may also help stabilises the standing and sitting base.
  • Thanks to the Cosa Active, 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.
