They cannot sit properly or move around: seating and mobility during treatment for developmental dysplasia of the hip in children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Children diagnosed with Developmental Dysplasia of theHip (0.2% of live births) are often treated by splintage tohold the head of the femur in the acetabulum during earlyjoint development. Whilst clinically effective, this can createdifficulties for the parents in handling the child and affectsthe mobility of the family, which subsequently creates emotionaland social difficulty resulting from the disruption ofthe family routine. To identify these problems and theirorder of priority, a survey of 113 recently affected familieswas carried out in England and Northern Ireland. Parentsidentified mobility, emotional and social problems. Splintagesize and shape was the fundamental problem from which theother difficulties arose. Solutions to the basic difficulties oftransporting and seating a child in splintage would largelyalleviate the feelings of frustration felt by the families andenable more normal activities of daily living.
