Hip Orthosis

Hip Orthosis

HO

A hip abduction orthosis is a brace that is typically used following a revision of a hip replacement or after a hip dislocation. It is used to help prevent excessive flexion or extension (forward and backward movement) of the hip and to limit adduction (it keeps the legs from moving together). The brace holds the femur (thigh) in the hip socket, allowing proper healing to take place. The brace should be worn 24 hours a day unless otherwise instructed.
