What to buy with Hip Brace for Arthritis

How to apply Ossur Unloader Hip Brace?

Note: At initial evaluation, fold belt arms and straps instead of cutting. When appropriate length has been determined, cut as needed to obtain final fit.

Rotation Control Strap Placement

  • Before donning the Unloader Hip, fasten Rotation Control Strap on the affected side by threading the Upper Alligator Clip through a slit in belt arm, and attaching it to button hook.
  • SmartDosing Dial should be at "0" mark.
  • Temporarily fasten lower strap end at the bottom of trousers, so that it doesn‘t tear at the Lycra during fitting.
  • Have user don the brace.

Belt Arm Adjustment

  • Detach Front Closures from Belt Arms.
  • Fold/Cut Belt Arms vertically, so that they are aligned with mid-line.
  • Re-attach Front Closures.
  • Close Belt Arms so that they overlap tightly but comfortably around waist.

Rotation Control Strap Adjustment

  • Detach Upper Alligator Clip. Fold/Cut strap so that the SmartDosing edge is positioned below the Belt Arm line (approximately 2 cm/0.79“).
  • Detach Lower Alligator Clip, and fold/cut strap to obtain ideal tension. It should feel tight, but not uncomfortable, when wrapped around the thigh and attached at outer side of leg.
  • With leg rotated slightly outwards, set SmartDosing dial at “5” mark. When rotating leg towards front and lifting it slightly, patient should experience agreeable tension in leg.
  • Repeat Lower Alligator Clip adjustment if necessary. The objective is to obtain adequate tension with SmartDosing at the “5” mark.

Thigh Strap

  • Position Thigh Strap so that its dot is positioned over the dot on the Rotation Control Strap.
  • Thread the slim end through the opening, and fasten securely.

Pulley System Adjustment

  • Verify the length of Pulley System strings by pulling at handles, and attaching on Belt Arms.
  • If the handles overlap, shorten strings by using the spooling system located inside the handles.
  • Fasten Pulley System so that it sits tightly and comfortably on Belt Arms.

Trochanter Pad (optional)

Apply pad when peak pressure reduction on greater trochanter is needed, and/or to increase sealing effect on labrum.

  • Position Trochanter Pad on the greater trochanter of the affected hip by attaching it under Belt Arm.

Final check

Verify that the brace is sitting correctly on body, with all parts accurately positioned. Ask the patient to walk around, sit down, and stand up, to ensure proper fit. Adjust as necessary, then proceed to cut straps and belt arms to ideal length.
