Orthoses, Lower Limb, Knee-Ankle-Foot, Therapeutic, Infant Bowleg

Definition : Therapeutic knee-ankle-foot orthoses (KAFO) designed for external modification of the structural and/or functional characteristics of the knee and ankle joints and foot of infants (typically before three years of age) with bowed legs, providing support and permitting a limited range of movement to the joints. Also available are static therapy orthoses that permit a very limited range of movement or completely immobilize the knee and ankle joints (e.g., A-Frames, braces); and dynamic therapy orthoses mainly intended for infants with progressive bowing disorder due to abnormal grow of the tibia (known as tibia vara or Blount disease).
