The International Hip Dysplasia Institiue (IHDI) recognises that Manduca has developed products that consider the importance of healthy hip development during infancy.
This is especially important during the early stages of hip development in the first few months after birth.
The International Hip Dysplasia Institiue acknowledes specific products as "hip-healthy" to help educate the public.
