SWASH® LP II uses a padded iliac extension that can be positioned in one of two places: It can be fit immediately above the iliac crest between the crest and the inferior angle of the costal flair, or it can be fit between the ASIS and the greater trochanter. The latter is used to minimize any influence towards lumbar flexion when sitting. The double strap front closure allows for symmetrical application. In the back, the padded metal posterior frame extends from approximately L2/L3 to S1/S2. The metal offers positive non-slip contact for the abduction control joints, and includes clear markings to monitor abduction settings. The joints are tapered downward to accommodate most walker styles. The thigh cuff closure is a simple double Velcro fold-back closure for easy donning and doffing. The pelvic band cover and thigh cuff padding are removable for laundering. The uprights for all sizes are 8mm diameter. This increase in diameter offers added strength to manage very high tone, plus it allows cuffs to be completely interchangeable between all sizes.
