Orthoses, Lower Limb, Knee-Ankle-Foot, Gait, Stance Control

Definition : Gait (functional) knee-ankle-foot orthoses (KAFO) designed with a stance control orthotic knee joint that provides mechanical stabilization to the knee joint during the stance phase of gait (i.e., when bearing weight) and permitting free flexion during swing. These orthoses usually consist of an ankle foot orthosis with the addition of metal uprights, an orthotic stance control knee joint, and thigh straps. Stance control gait KAFOs are intended to permit indoor and outdoor walking to patients with severe knee paresis or paralysis.
