Osteoarthritis or osteoarthrosis is becoming an increasingly common diagnosis, in medical articles we increasingly see headlines such as "Osteoarthritis cannot be cured" , "Osteoarthritis is a huge challenge for the health sector" , "Diagnosis of hip and knee osteoarthritis exceeds 300 million worldwide" .

Osteoarthritis is known to have no single specific cause, but several factors are known to predispose a person to osteoarthritis. in the risk group : age, family anamnesis, joint injuries and diseases, obesity, the connection of osteoarthritis with the onset of menopause, athletes are also included in the risk group due to the effects of repeated, heavy physical exertion.

Osteoarthritis manifests itself as a gradual wearing away of cartilage, with the formation of erosions and the development of bone sclerosis under the cartilage. Therapy is aimed at reducing chronic pain and stopping the acute process.

Most often, osteoarthritis is found in the knee and hip joints. Osteoarthritis of the hip joint has more severe manifestations, limping may not manifest itself for a long time, but it may appear after prolonged walking. Stable limp associated with hip pain and leg shortening (due to femoral deformity/wear). Pain is observed in the groin area and in the front of the thigh, and morning stiffness is also observed.

CoxaTrain – an innovation in hip osteoarthritis therapy

The German brand Bauerfeind is known for innovative, high quality and smart design products, which were created to ease movement restrictions caused by various injuries and illnesses.

Bauerfeind, in collaboration with doctors, medical professors, technicians, physiotherapists and product designers, has created a new, innovative product designed to focus on the movement limitations caused by osteoarthritis of the hip joint.
