S.W.A.S.H. from SPS Improves Sitting, Standing
December 01, 2006
The unique S.W.A.S.H.® (Sitting Walking And Standing Hip) orthosis, available from SPS, utilizes a complex angular structure engineered to maintain good hip alignment.
While standing or walking,S.W.A.S.H provides enough abduction to prevent scissoring and medial femoral rotation.
As the hips are flexed into the sitting position, S.W.A.S.H. automatically abducts the hips into a tripod base for enhanced sitting stability, creating an upright posture.
Benefits of S.W.A.S.H. include improved sitting and standing postures, improved stability, and for the ambulatory user, improved gait.
S.W.A.S.H. does not interfere with children's ability to play and does not interfere with most walkers, wheelchairs, or standing frames.
