AliHip™ Cushion, Home Model This economical version of the AliHip™ Cushion is the perfect take-home option for post-hip surgery patients going home with posterior dislocation precautions.

18"W x 16"D x 4"H; slope side is 1"H in front
Traditional Hip Cushions are usually very firm and thick—adding up to 6" of additional height. They maintain the hip at the required 90° angle but may also restrict the user’s functional reach.
AliHip™ Cushions are gently sloped on the operative side so the hip can extend an additional 15° to 20°, allowing the user to safely lean forward the same 15° to 20° at the trunk in facilitation of sit-to-stand, self-toileting, basic ADLs, even eating!
AliHip Cushions also improve positioning of hips to help with pain control and to maximize sitting tolerance post-operatively. Plus, with the knee naturally lower than the hips at this angle, individuals don’t need to sit on a 6"-high hip cushion or a pile of bed pillows!
Comfortably maintains hip precautions AliHip Cushions maintain hips at more than 90° extension, while allowing user more freedom of movement in the wheelchair or armchair. More comfortable than traditional hip cushions, they are adjustable for left or right leg.
