The Orthomerica Newport Ultra Hip Orthosis is designed to provide protection and support for patients with problems related to hip instability. The Ultra Hip brace protects the hip joint capsule by providing a limited and safe range of motion following surgical procedures.
A laterally placed abduction paddle helps to maintain the head of the femur in the acetabulum. The compression belt designed with double pull tabs anchors the hip joint and thigh cuff to promote optimal alignment. The femoral widget on the hinge offers extra adjustability for those patients who are more difficult to fit.
The brace provides the user with greater mobility and support when toileting than any other hip brace. The universal fit means it can be used for the left or right and accommodates a waist size ranging from 25” – 52”.
