Orthoses, Lower Limb, Knee, Gait, Orthotic Joint, Stance Control

Definition : Orthotic joint functional knee lower-limb orthoses designed to support and assist the knee joint during normal motion by locking the knee joint when the patient is standing and providing a free knee joint during the swing while gaiting. These orthoses consist of prefabricated or custom-made devices, typically including long thigh and leg rods with soft cuffs encircling the thigh and leg, respectively, and a mechanism that prevent the knee from bending in the stance phase of gait and frees the joint when swinging the leg. The mechanism is activated by the user using a mechanical or electronic switch. Stance control functional knee orthoses are intended mainly for long-term use in normal activities by users with unilateral muscle weakness, such as patients who previously suffered from poliomyelitis (i.e., post-polio paralysis and/or syndrome).
