The Escort hip abduction brace is a lightweight patient friendly brace utilizing the latest
in hip joint technology, the Genesis Joint. The Escort provides patients with a
lightweight brace that is easy to don and doff. Superior comfort and improved patient
compliance is the signature of this brace.
The Escort Hip brace is the result of a collaborative design effort with Sky Medical
and Dr. Sarmiento. The design provides the patient greater comfort through utilization
of a light weight, low profile brace equipped with a revolutionary joint design, the
Genesis. This system abducts the leg only during flexion, allowing normal gait.
The Escort is equipped with the same pelvic tilt mechanism as our Classic
brace, making it gender neutral and capable of accommodating a wide
range of hip development. The Escort pelvic section is designed to fit just
below the iliac crest, eliminating impingement on the rib cage while seated.
The Escort thigh section is a two piece medial lateral design that allows for
maximum adjustability and positive purchase of the leg. The unique design
is easier for patients to don and doff than a circumferential cuff.
