Universal hip abduction brace
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 VIPERmax with innovative lower limb abduction system “Hip Joint Control Flex”.
VIPERmax is an universal hip brace with control of flexion/extension and abduction/adduction.
Our hip brace VIPERmax is made of Active3D™, equipped with soft universal abdominal and thigh bands and anatomic shaped monocentric splint with ROM adjustment.
Active3D™ is thermoformed fabric made of special foamed, cell-closed designed material. It reduces the pressure on the body or any abrasions made by orthopaedic stays and aluminum splints. It is fully waterproof fabric and does not absorb sweat. It’s easy to clean. Due to its features, the fabric is an excellent product for making medical orthopaedic braces and orthoses. ACTIVE 3D™ has various external self-gripping layers. Our material has special, thermoformed properties and may be shaped according to the functional goals of the final braces.
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 VIPERmax 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.

SAFE HIP SPLINT
SAFE HIP SPLINT - it is a light, universal and very strong orthopedic splint designed for hip joint orthoses. The splint is perfect for use after hip surgery, it controls both the angle of hip flexion and abduction of the lower limb. The splint is made of a very strong aluminum alloy and high-quality steel, which guarantees proper and reliable postoperative protection of the hip joint. Both the upper and lower arm of the splint are equipped with 3D supports, which are made of a very strong PE called ABS. The height of the hip basket is adjustable, which allows you to easily set the orthopedic range of motion at the height of the hip joint. Additionally, hip basket has adjustable width and a very strong front fastening realized on swivel quick-release buckles. The lower 3D thigh supports are also made of ABS and also have height and limb rotation adjustments. Additionally, the thigh supports have a stabilizer of the medial part of the knee to prevent accidental deformation of the protected limb. The thigh support is also fastened with quick-release buckles, which guarantees a perfect fit of the circumferential tapes to any shape of the thigh. Both the elements of the femoral support and the elements of the hip have been equipped with soft thermoformed 3D cushions, perfectly relieving the product from the patient's body, and the special channels allowing air to migrate, thanks to which the patient's skin is properly oxygenated after the surgery, which speeds up the treatment process. In addition, the 3D pads have a cut-off function in order to adjust the product to the patient's body size. The ROM has been additionally strengthened, in which specially reinforced hexagonal screws were used as angle locks, which guarantees the stability of the set angle, even with heavy and obese patients. The clock has a full extension lock and adjustment of the flex and extension angle in every possible configuration in the range: 0, 15, 45, 60, 80 and 100 degrees. The angle lock is secure and cannot be changed accidentally or by an unauthorized person due to the fact that an Allen key is required to change it. The splint additionally has a specia adjustment of the lower limb abduction, thanks to which this setting becomes extremely precise, not found in this form in competing products on the market. Limb abduction is carried out using a specially cam, thanks to which the adjustment can withstand very high loads. The abduction function is possible thanks to the use of a reinforced metal hinge located directly above the orthopedic ROM.
