This is an excellent products designed by an OT with safety in mind. It allows the child to feel the end range of their hip lateral movement so they can develop skills moving over their hips. The design keeps the hips well aligned without limiting rotation or lower extremity dissociation. Wiltse has considered costs and kept them to a minimum by designing growth into each band. Children of all ages can benefit from this simple design to help them learn how to move functionally over their hips.
