How hip supports and braces work
A hip support speeds up your recovery after surgery by stabilising the hip joint in a fixed position. This way, your motion is limited, reducing the risk of hurting your hip with involuntary or uncontrolled movement. Hip braces often have rigid parts that not only give your hip stability but can also immobilise it or strongly limit and control motion. There are different hip braces and hip supports for different conditions. They are available for adults, but also for children. One frequent condition that requires a hip support for babies is hip dysplasia. A hip abduction orthosis is commonly chosen for this condition, but they are available for all ages and can also help with dislocation or healing from a hip replacement revision.
medi offers a hip support for the recovery after a total hip replacement. It's available in different sizes as well as versions for the left or right hip to ensure the best possible fit for all patients. They're made from soft fabric with a breathable design so that they can be comfortably worn all day.
Finding the right hip support for you
Medical aids need to be chosen with great care. You should always discuss with your doctor which hip brace or support is best in your case. They will know which of the many benefits of different supports will have the best effect on your hip injury, whether it's compression or restricted mobility. Your physician will also know why certain models might be a hindrance for your healing process, which is why professional advice is always strongly recommended.
