A lower-limb orthosis is an external device applied to a lower-body segment to improve function by controlling motion, providing support through stabilizing gait, reducing pain through transferring load to another area, correcting flexible deformities, and preventing progression of fixed deformities.
AFO’s provide external support to the ankle joint and can provide improved positioning or assist the user who demonstrates weakness or paralysis of muscles in the lower leg.
KAFO’s extend above the knee joint and provide stability and control to the lower extremity when knee control is necessary by using a variety of available knee joints.
Fabrication of lower extremity bracing from carbon composites offers sturdy, lighter weight materials with more dynamic properties and improved functionality for the user.
Technology which enables freedom of the knee during swing phase while providing stability while the limb is bearing weight – therefore creating a more natural gait pattern for the user.
