The Pavilk harness is designed to keep your baby’s hips in a specific position. The harness should not be removed in the early stages of treatment, even if it is soiled unless directed by a doctor.
Each week or two at the beginning of treatment, the position of the harness will be checked by the doctor or nurse practitioner and probably adjusted. This will allow for natural growth, keeping the hip joint in the best position.
Soft, thin clothing (preferably a shirt or vest with a collar) may be worn under the harness. Occasionally the shoulder straps may rub against the neck. If they do, some soft padding can be added to cover the straps. This will prevent any harmful rubbing.
Each day: it is important to check the knee creases, groin creases and sides of the neck for skin rubbing.
Important: You should never unfasten straps (# 3,4,7,8), these are the hip flexor and hip abduction straps. When the hip joint becomes normal, as it does in most cases, the doctor will start allowing you to remove the harness for certain periods of time.
