KNEE ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSES
KAFO’s are specialised, custom made orthoses incorporating control at the Foot, Ankle and Knee joints. Often prescribed for people with neuromuscular conditions like Poliomyelits or Paralysis. With improved gait, stability, and independence KAFO’s can offer an improved quality of life.
Stance Control Knee Joints
Stance Control knee joints are the newest technology for use in KAFO”s. The Knee joints automatically lock while the leg is in contact the ground, providing safety and stability and unlock when the leg is swinging forward, dramatically improving the walking pattern, efficiency and reducing energy expenditure.
