Full Description

The most visible benefits of the SWASH® are improvementsin sitting and standing posture and stability, and for theambulatory user, improvement in gait. The benefits can beimmediate and are often dramatic. Continued improvementsmay be seen after the wearer has become acclimatized tothe orthosis.Given the visible benefits, perhaps the most importantbenefit the SWASH® offers is its influence on hip stability.The very nature of high adductor tone places dislocatingforces on the hips. The internal rotation and adductionforces leave hips at risk. Data shows that ambulatory childrenwith CP have a 30% incidence, and non-ambulatorychildren have a 60% incidence of hip subluxation requiringmedical intervention.
