What is a hip abduction pillow and why do I need to wear one?
A hip abduction pillow is a device used to prevent your hip from moving out of the joint. The pillow is placed between your thighs and attached to your legs with straps. It helps prevent your hip from turning in or away from your body. It will also keep your hip straight while you are in bed, even while you are asleep. The abduction pillow will hold your hip in one position and help it heal. You may need to wear one if your hip moved out of the joint or you have a hip fracture. It may also be used after surgery such as an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) or a hip arthroplasty. You may need to use a hip pillow for several weeks.(via Drugs.com)
