SWASH CLASSIC - At level of the (ASIS).
SWASH LOW PROFILE - At level between crest of ilium and ASIS. Ideal is to fit the orthosis at midpelvic girdle to obtain firm grasp and control of the pelvis. Depending on anatomy, final fitting location may vary from just below the waist (navel) to mid pelvic girdle.
Measure at distal thigh, just proximal to the condyles. Ideal is to fit the cuffs as distal as possible without creating pressure or interference in the popliteal area. However, pressure on the thorax, excessive spinal flexion, or discomfort due to hamstring tightness, may be relieved by moving the cuffs up 1 - 3 inches.
Measure waist to mid-patella. At final fitting, should be shortened to level of distal thigh cuff padding.
