Resources for getting started & getting the most out of your HipTrac.
This page includes the latest versions of the HipTrac provider and patient protocol guides, and videos that demonstrate the setup and use of HipTrac in both supine and side-lying positions. Please note that we have recently broken our Patient Protocol sheet into a Quick Start page and an Orientation Test guide; both are included below. We now recommend an initial Orientation Test – as outlined on the page below – to determine patient sensitivity to traction. Those who are sensitive to traction – generally less than 10% – should be started on the HipTrac at a more gradual progression. Everyone else can start at a faster pace – the differences are detailed on the Orientation Test guide – and feel the benefits of HipTrac’s long axis traction in less time. At the bottom, you’ll find a link to our provider FAQs. If you have any questions or issues in getting started, please click on the chat box in the lower right for an immediate answer during business hours, or to send us a message after hours. We’ll get back to you the next day.
