Bledsoe Philippon Post-Op Hip Brace Information

The Bledsoe Philippon Post-Op Hip Brace was developed in collaboration with Dr. Marc Philippon, MD, Director of Sports Medicine/Hip Disorders at the University of Pittsburgh. The brace limits hip flexion/extension as well as abduction and adduction in 15° increments from -30° to 105°.

The brace can also lock in any position from -30° to 60°. The post-operative or post-injury brace protects patients following total hip revisions, arthroscopic hip repairs or other hip joint surgeries, injuries or problems that can benefit from range-of-motion control.

  • Can be applied in less than 3 minutes saving valuable time in the operating room
  • Easily formable aluminum shells covered with a double-thick ultra-breathable polyurethane foam padding with a comfortable loop pile surface
  • Three simple straps hold it securely affixed to the patient's hip and leg
