Orthotic therapy for positioning or progressive extension stretch therapy to reverse hip adduction contractures. The SoftPro HKO has an adjustable hip abduction bar with settings in 5 degree steps from 30 degrees to 45 degrees of hip abduction. The hip abduction bar can be set to 5 degrees more hip abduction than comfortable end range to apply a progressive extension gentle stretch on the hip adductors. By increasing wearing time to three to six hours per use, the Total End Range Time (TERT) of device wear allows the shortened tissue to lengthen over time. The hip abduction bar must be modified into greater hip abduction as needed to maintain a therapeutic stretch of the tissue as device wear continues. HKO can be used in-bed or in a wheelchair.
The SoftPro HKO can be applied over a knee brace if hip and knee orthotic therapy are done simulaneously.
