Hip Hold

Lateral Patient Positioning DeviceAperçu HHVA

Positioning a patient properly on the operating table is critical for patient safety and comfort, surgeon and staff efficiency. The Hip Hold device facilitates this by providing a 2 point rigid fixation of the pelvis and keeping the patient stabilised in the lateral decubitus position throughout the surgical procedure. Hip Hold helps to :

  • Provide accurate and reproducible patient and implant oriention
  • Provide stability of patient position throughout the procedure
  • Keep the abdomen free from external pressure during the procedure

The exact positioning and orientation of the acetabular component versus a well stabilised pelvis, is key for short and long term stability of the hip. Advances in technologies, new materials, and biomechanics have made it increasingly important for the orthopaedic surgeon to be able to accurately orientate the implant components in a reproducible fashion.   Hip Hold is available in two versions:

  • HIP HOLD Variable angle (ex HIP FIX Mark 1)

HIP Hold Variable Angle

  • HIP HOLD 90 (ex HIP FIX 2000)

HIP Hold 90
