Hip braces & supports
Hip joint (articulatio coxae) is a spheroidal joint and can be moved three-dimensionally. The upper thigh bone - femur and the pelvis herein consitute the bony joint-duo.
The hip joint‘s three main directions of motion are: 1 Flexing /extending ,flexion – extension. 2 Spreading / tightening ,abduction – adduction. 3 Rotating outside / inside ,outer – inner rotation.
In order to provide frictionless motion at the contact surfaces of the hip joint, the joint parts of the femur head and the joint socket are covered with a very smooth and thick cartilage layer. The joint mucous membrane constantly produces joint fluid-synovia, which lubricates the joint, protects it from shocks as well as nourishes it at the same time.
