The medical corset you mentioned is a specialized orthotic device designed for children with hip conditions requiring hip abduction. It is commonly known as a “hanged hip abduction brace.” This brace is used to maintain the correct positioning and alignment of the hips, particularly in cases where the child’s hip joints need to be kept in an abducted (spread apart) position. The brace typically consists of straps or bands that wrap around the child’s waist, hips, and thighs, and is secured to a suspended frame or hanger. This setup helps to stabilize the hips, prevent dislocation or subluxation, and promote proper development and healing of the hip joints. The brace is prescribed and fitted by a medical professional, such as an orthopedic specialist, who will ensure that it is customized to meet the child’s specific needs.
