The Amsterdam suspension. Balanced suspension after hip surgery.

Abstract

The Amsterdam Suspension is an easily applied, mechanically efficient and inexpensive apparatus for use in postoperative treatment of patients with either hip fractures or arthroplasties. Amsterdam suspension allows lower extremity exercises to be started in the immediate post surgical period by markedly reducing the gravitation load on the extremity.
