Product Description

Pavlik harness

Pavlik Harness is a brace commonly used for babies with hip dysplasia, a hip disorder. Sometimes, it is also used for babies with a femur fractures. The purpose of the harness is to keep the hips and knees bent (flexed) and thighs spread apart (abducted). This position helps to allow the hips to grow correctly. The Pavlik Harness will be put on your baby by the doctor, who will position the straps properly. This position helps the ball of the hips and the socket to grow as best as possible. The extra length of the straps will be folded and taped down. The straps will be marked at the Velcro level to ensure the strap length stays the same. The doctor will make adjustments during follow-up visits. Do not remove the harness unless instructed to do so by your doctor. You will have to sponge-bathe your baby. Take special care to check all skin folds, especially behind the knees and in the diaper area. Keep these areas clean and dry. You should dress your baby in loose clothing. Ensure the clothing or blankets do not bring your baby’s knees together. Do not traditionally swaddle your baby.

Consult a doctor if;

  • The child is unable to kick their legs actively.
  • Your baby’s feet are swollen or puffy even after the Velcro straps have been loosened.
  • The harness appears to be too small.
  • Areas of his skin become raw, or a rash develops.
  • You’re having problems adjusting to your child being in the harness and would like to discuss it.
