The BAAH Brace (Beagle Adjustable Abduction Hip) is used in the management of paediatric hip reconstruction. The brace is manufactured in the UK by Beagle Custom Fabrication and was designed for a consultant surgeon at the Royal Hospital for Children who wanted an alternative to the Batchelor cast.
The custom brace is made-to-measure to provide a perfect fit for the patient. Designed with either a short or long adjustable abduction bar, constructed from a Dural Alloy – a high strength, low weight alloy composed of Aluminium, Copper and Magnesium.
The thigh cuff is manufactured from LDPE (low-density polyethylene), which has sufficient rigidity but enough flexibility to allow the cuff to open for easy donning. Constructed with a single hook and loop fastener and a removable/washable liner. The brace is supplied with an extra set of pads.
The BAAH brace is a made-to-measure custom brace, so three measurements are required:
» Thigh circumference
» Length of cuff
» Bar length: Short (160-260mm) or Long (260-420mm)
