Story Check Over the course of three months, Martina Ivanda, Head of the Orthopedics Department at Rose Hospital in Horn-Bad Meinberg, has observed positive effects on stability, gait and walking distance with CoxaTrain in a patient suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip. For the rehabilitation expert, the new brace is a valuable option for functional treatment.
- “The CoxaTrain can become a milestone in non-surgical treatment,” says Martina Ivanda, “it allows you to break the pain cycle and get patients moving again.”
- Hip problems usually emanate from the myofascial system. Using friction massage of the soft tissue in the sacroiliac area, the gluteus medius and greater trochanter, the CoxaTrain helps compensate for muscular imbalances in the lumbar, pelvic and hip region.
- Thanks to braces like the CoxaTrain, joint replacement surgery can be delayed for longer – an important aspect for younger patients and those who work, says Martina Ivanda.
- The orthopedist can also imagine the CoxaTrain being used effectively in pre-operative and post-operative care to support mobilization and promote a better surgical outcome.
