The Orthomerica Newport® Junior Hip Brace with Virtual® Paediatric Joint enhances hip stability by supporting and positioning the hips in optimal alignment while allowing a controlled range of motion. A universal pelvic module with bilateral thigh cuffs and washable CoolFoam™ liners. A comfortable lumbar pad and the anatomical design captures and stabilises the pelvis.
The hip orthosis can be used postoperatively to maintain the corrected surgical position or to maximise function during activities of daily living. Improved alignment through the hip encourages appropriate acetabular and femoral modelling and reduces the tendency for subluxation and dislocation.
The anatomical design captures and stabilises the pelvis, while the Virtual® Paediatric Joint is the smallest and lightest hip joint available with adjustable control of flexion, extension, abduction and adduction. The curved proximal joint attachments provide clearance over the incision and trochanter.
Designed to provide rigidity similar to that provided by a hip spica cast, the Newport® Junior with abduction bar is the perfect postoperative orthotic choice. A dual sliding bar design where one bar is slotted for maximum adjustability and the other has pre-drilled holes for stable fixation. Adjustable for up to 30° of abduction on each side.
To add a Adjustable Abduction Bar ‘Short’ or ‘Long’, contact our Customer Services Department. See size guide for codes.
