Default RDL/SLDL Alternatives

Due to a medical condition, I am unable to do forms of the deadlift. What are some alternatives for RDL/SLDL that I could use that target the hamstrings? I'm already doing seated leg curls so I'd prefer a hip hinging movement that I can progress on.

Thanks.

Good mornings and kettlebells swings and barbell hip thrusts.

Thanks.
You could try one-legged versions with either a dumbbell or a kettlebell.
So if you have the weight in your right hand, then the right leg is what you're standing on and working. The rest just sort of follows along like a see-saw. Keeping your back straight and your arm relaxed, bend forward at the hip until you feel a stretch in your hams or the kettlebell touches the floor. Rise and repeat.
This will be very unbalanced to begin with but luckily the brain is easily fooled: if you find you can't maintain balance, simply touch something your brain will interpret as stable with the fingertips of your free hand and hey presto your balance is good!

Not a bad idea, but I was looking for a hip hinge exercise instead of a hip extension one. Thanks though.

I might be stuck with hip thrusts, I guess. Pull-throughs might work, right?

I've done the dumbbell version in the past. I might try them again.

Darn it.. it was working a few weeks ago. Anyways you basically do a lying leg curl but at the peak of the contraction you use your glutes and curl even further. That's all. Nothing crazy. I tried to find a video but I think this was Lyles idea and can't find it elsewhere, hopefully he fixes the link cause you would probably benefit from it.

Edit: what about this?

Basically the same thing as I was suggesting only you would use a lying leg curl machine
