SWASH Brace

Hip orthoses

Standing, Walking And Sitting Hip Orthosis' is developed to help hip problems caused by CP. The brace keeps the lower extremities apart when walking and helps in sitting and standing if knees scissor while walking or muscle imbalance causes adduction in the pelvis. This orthosis doesn't limit the flexion or extension of the pelvis. The SWASH is used constantly. Can also be worn during sleeping to guide the pelvis into abduction. Will not work if the pelvis has a contracture of over 20 degrees or in cases of severe tibial outwards rotation.
