Pre-Selected Hip Joints

Pre-selected Hip Joint Drawing

A pre-selected joint simplifies the unlocking method by breaking it down into two steps.

  1. The patient pre-sets the joint to the unlock position. The patient remains stable until they are ready to sit.
  2. With both hands holding on to their walker the patient gently stands more upright. This action takes the load off the connecting plates and the joints snap unlocked!

Patients using RGOs with conventional hip joints are sometimes afraid to unlock their hip joints for fear of losing balance because they must let go with one hand to unlock the joint. This leaves the patient in a very unstable condition with the danger of the torso pitching forward. As described above the pre-selected hip joint eliminates this hazard.

  • Safer and independent hip joint unlocking means more independence and greater self-esteem.
  • The Center for Orthotics Design lower hip joint bars are interchangeable with the medium or large Fillauer, Inc., hip joints.
