Hip replacement surgery is a procedure in which a doctor surgically removes a painful hip joint with arthritis and replaces it with an artificial joint often made from metal and plastic components. This surgery is often the only way to relieve the pain and improve the walking. After procedure, patient should keep upright position the very next day. Unfortunately, up to 12 months after hip replacement surgery, pivoting or twisting on the involved leg should be avoided. Patient should also not cross the involved leg past the midline of the body nor turn the involved leg inward and you should not bend at the hip past 90 degrees. All of these activities may damage the “new joint” and another hip replacement could be necessary. To ensure safety, patient should consider using our hip abduction brace with innovative lower limb abduction system “Hip Joint Control Flex”.
VIPERmax is an universal hip brace with control of flexion/extension and abduction/adduction. The brace is designed with MiniMax principle (maximum effect in minimum device). Due to innovative construction the brace provides maximum safety and protection with little sizes.
Our hip brace VIPERmax is made of ActiveDistance, equipped with soft universal abdominal and thigh bands and anatomic shaped monocentric splint with ROM adjustment.
ActivDistance is 3-layered lamination, made of comfort foam and 2 non-elastic polyamide layers. ActivDistance is not elastic what improves stabilization. The foam inside makes our fabric very soft and comfortable. Our fabric is self-gripping in both sides, so you can fit our devices perfectly.
In the soft, abdominal and thigh part we used special ABS plastic elements with Velcro straps. The splint is equipped with innovative Press-slide system which provides smooth full length adjustment. Our hip brace maintains required hip position, reinforces the joint and provides po-op control. It’s excellent solution for improving the gait pattern and treat the muscles contractures. The fast and easy adjustment provides full anatomical flexion/extension and adduction/abduction control. Before limit the hip motion, consult your doctor.
