Soft hip control orthosis worn in bed

Randy McFarland

Hi List members,

I have an Alzheimer’s patient who needs to follow hip precautions but when
unsupervised, she has sat up in bed, unstrapped the soft abduction bolster
and dislocated her hip while still in bed. Now the physician wants her to
wear her ambulatory hip orthosis while in bed. Is anyone aware of a soft
orthosis that would prevent hip flexion in while in bed but wouldn’t cause
skin pressure problems?
