The California Hip system is a comfortable, total-contact reinforced mesh pelvic component based on the popular California Compression Orthosis supports the back and aligns pelvis and hip joint. The California Hip System has universal pelvic, thigh and hip joint components to reduce inventory and make stocking all sizes more cost efficient. Hip joint settings provide a strong flexion/ extension stop with mild, adjustable resistance to adduction. Comfortable mesh thigh component. Patient-adjustable compression to increase comfort during activities of daily living. Abduction wedge regulates the clearance of the hip joint over the trochanter and incision site. Lightweight, low profile components are easier to wear under clothing which can increase patient compliance and wearing time.
