S.W.A.S.H

S.W.A.S.H. is the first and only orthosis that ensures variable abduction during both extension and flexion to help children with cerebral palsy control scissor gait and sit independently.

The S.W.A.S.H Orthosis is intended for use by any child whose adduction/internal rotation at the hip joint interferes with function or causes lateral migration of the femoral head. The majority of such children suffer from cerebral palsy, which may be spastic or dystonic.

 

  • Dystonia
  • Hip migration
  • Scissoring gait interfering with ambulation
  • Hip adduction which limits independent sitting

 

 

  • Plastic pelvic section extends from L2/L3 to the coccyx, providing maximum torso support for candidates with flaccidity or very limited trunk control 
  • Single strap fixed front closure to secure torso support
  • 6 mm (size1) and 7 mm (sizes 2-4) diameter uprights
  • Increased posterior and side support
  • Proven results in several different independent studies
  • “Childproof” thigh cuff closure
