Saddle type seat designed for people recovering from hip surgery
Specially designed to meet the needs of people who have undergone unilateral or bilateral total hip replacement.
Keeps the patient’s legs abducted in the proper position. The “saddle” type seat prevents internal rotation as well as adduction at the hip. This can help reduce the effects of spasticity occurring in people with cerebral palsy or other muscle tone affecting conditions. The unique bilateral contoured shape permits easy rising and provides optimal comfort.
Adds 4¨ (10 cm) to the seating level. Weighs 3.3 lb. (1.5 kg).
U.S. Patents 5,199,122 and 5,027,445, and covered by patents in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden and The United Kingdom.
Designed in conjunction with the OT/PT Rehabilitation Departments at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, NY.
