Ultraflex Offers HOPe1
April 01, 2005
The R&D team at Ultraflex has developed a new
hip orthosis for pediatric patients needing night bracing
post-multilevel Botox for spastic cerebral palsy (quadriplegia,
diplegia). It has full "gutter" solid KO or KAFO sections to
minimize point pressure and a simple twostrap patellar counter
force strapping to keep knees in full extension (as cast). Quick
release components gently abduct to stable full maximum abduction,
and bar length adjusts to achieve maximum abduction.
