The study of Babywearing in other cultures

Two scientific studies examine the affects of babywearing and how it may influence the occurrence of Hip Dysplasia in a culture or region of the world.

 

In this publication the authors explore if the lack of DDH in the sub-Saharan African population has anything to do with the prevalence of back-carrying by the indigenous population.

“Back-carrying Infants to Prevent Developmental Hip Dysplasia and its Sequelae: Is a New Public Health Initiative Needed?”

In this groundbreaking study, published in 1981, the authors explore the reasons behind the low occurrence of hip dysplasia in the Southern Chinese population.

“Congenital Hip Dislocation and Dysplasia in Southern Chinese”
