Apart from knee arthroplasty, hip arthroplasty is the most commonly performed joint replacement.  In 2011, 232,200 patients received a hip joint prosthesis.

During the time leading up to hip surgery, pain will increase, e.g. due to the progressive osteoarthritis of the hip joint, and patients will typically establish a compensatory posture while standing and walking. The pain will lead to a decline in physical activity and muscular imbalances of the muscles controlling the hip joint. A muscular deficiency in this area may result in a high risk of luxation after hip replacement.

The DynaCox evolution Hip Orthosis minimizes the risk of a luxation of the hip joint and an ensuing second operation. The orthosis’ unique dynamic design secures the femoral head in the acetabulum, without corrupting the patient’s natural gait. This innovative treatment/therapy concept allows the patient to activate and train the musculature around the hip, and ensures a successful healing process.
