SKU: CF-BAAH Categories: ,

Manufactured in the UK by Beagle custom fabrication, the BAAH Brace (Beagle Adjustable Abduction Hip) is used in the management of Paediatric HIP reconstruction. The brace was made for a consultant surgeon at the Royal Hospital for Children who wanted an alternative to the Batchelor cast.

The custom brace is a made-to-measure brace to provide a perfect fit for the patient. Designed with either a short or long adjustable abduction bar, which is 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 & loop fastener and removable/washable liner.

The BAAH brace is a made-to-measure custom brace, so 3 measurements are required:
»  Thigh circumference
»  Length of cuff
»  Bar length: – Short (160 – 260mm) or Long (260-420mm)
