AM-SB-01 brace is excellent support for hip joint after endoprosthesoplasty.
Endoprosthesis is often result of degenerative disease that based on destruction of joint cartilage, joint capsule and other soft tissues. There are bone spurs, called osteophytes, one the femur head and acetabulum surface. Osteophytes usually limit joint movement and typically cause pain.
Hip joint is ball joint where head femur is inside the acetabulum. Reason of the joint degeneration can be improper building (hip dysplasia), growth disturbances or injuries. It can be also caused by metabolic disorders such as osteoporosis or overweight.
Our AM-SB-01 brace with lateral splint is a crucial element while rehabilitation process after joint replacement.
The lateral splint supports joint against the undesirable motions such as: excessive hip adduction, flexion or rotation, which can cause loosen and shift of the endoprosthesis. In this case the resurgery is necessary.
Our hip brace is used after surgery which limits the risk of the endoprosthesis destruction.
AM-SB-01 brace is made of structural fabric called ActivPren. Using of the Air Supply System based on interior fabric perforation allows skin to breath. ActivPren is also waterproof.
This fabric is soft and elastic what guarantees good fitting and proper compression. The structure of this material contains perforated neoprene foam covered by polyamide fabrics. The advantage of this material is that it is not knitted and contains no thick fibres which can cause abrasions if pressed firmly on patient’s skin.
Additionally, the brace is equipped with lateral splint made of high quality of sanded aluminium, durable cover what makes splints neutral to the influence of sweat and salt. The splint is covered in special lateral pocket what allows to bring it out and wash the brace.
In addition, the brace holds orthopaedic stays, which support the hip joint and adjustable fasteners: frontal and thigh, what provides good fitting the device according to the patient size.
