Infant Hip Examination Trainer

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) occurs in approximately 1 or 2 babies in 1,000. The Limbs & Things Infant Hip Exam Trainer has been designed to meet the specific requirements of healthcare professionals training to identify and diagnose DDH.

Limbs & Things worked with leading American paediatrician, Dr Joseph O. Lopreiato, a specialist in Simulation Education, and Elizabeth Weissbord, MA, CMI, to develop this infant hip simulation model.

This infant hip trainer comes with 2 interchangeable lower leg modules that allow trainees to identify the differences between normal and abnormal hip pathologies. The Lower Abnormal hip module’s range of motion gives trainees a realistic representation of the following:

Dislocating a hip that is lax in the socket
Relocating a hip that is dislocated from the socket, feeling the “clunk” as the procedure is completed
Using the Galeazzi sign to identify the visual signs of DDH
Using both the Ortolani Test and Barlow Maneuver on both hip pathologies

An infant torso module was included in the trainer to provide a weighted model that has greater stability when in use. It also increases realism over a simple lower leg module.
