Limbs & Things, the Bristol-based medical task trainer specialist, is launching a new product to help healthcare professionals identify and diagnose developmental hip dysplasia.

Commonly known as clicky hip, developmental hip dysplasia occurs when the ball-and-socket joint of the hip does not form properly in babies and young children, making the hip joint loose and, in severe cases, causing the thigh bone to come out of socket. It impacts around one or two babies in every thousand.

The new Limbs & Things Infant Hip Exam Trainer has been designed to meet the specific requirements of healthcare professionals training to identify and diagnose hip dysplasia. The lifelike simulation model comes with two interchangeable lower leg parts that allow trainees to identify the differences between how a normal and an abnormal hip should feel.

The model’s durability also means that they can repeatedly practice the procedures, helping them build confidence and develop muscle memory for the techniques involved, before performing the examination on a patient.

Anne Allin, commercial director, Limbs & Things, said: “Hip dyplasia is a fairly common issue amongst newborns that can lead to long term problems if left undiagnosed.

“We worked in partnership with specialists in America to develop this trainer that we believe will give healthcare professionals the confidence and skills to detect hip dysplasia at the earliest possible stage, giving the child the best possible outcome.”
