Abstract

The use of dynamic elastomeric fabric orthoses is examined in a young woman with hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS) referred for physiotherapy with hip dysplasia, prior to a right periacetabular osteotomy. Dynamic elastomeric fabric orthoses plus rigorous subjective examination, therapists' listening skills, and patient-centered goals were useful for this hEDS patient.
