Donations in Action

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute is focused on improving the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of Hip Dysplasia. Pediatricians often fall inline with a number of our strategic initiatives since they tend to be the front line defense for the diagnosis of hip dysplasia.

To assist pediatricians around the world, and with support from loyal donors, the IHDI created the “Teaching Box“. We send these boxes to pediatricians, medical schools and other healthcare professionals who not only see a large number of patients, but also train many medical residences.

This Teaching Box is a two-part system to help train all levels of health providers:

Part 1: Diagnosis

  • Validated Teaching Video including; anatomy of the hip, pathology of DDH and how to perform a examination.
  • Hippy Baby Examination Simulator with exam video.
Part 2: Early Treatment

  • Pavlik Harness application video.
  • Pavlik Harness.
  • Infant size baby doll, used for practice and observing application of Pavlik Harness.
  • Scoring sheet for evaluating technical skills.

Each Teaching Box cost around $1,000 USD to create and send out, but each Teaching Box may be used multiple times.

Over the years we’ve distributed many boxes all over the world. In 2015 we sent a box to a medical Professional in Cordoba, Argentina. 4 years later, she continues to use this Teaching Box for a bi-annual course created to educate healthcare professionals.
