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

Definition : Knee-ankle-foot lower-limb orthoses (KAFO) designed for external modification of the structural and/or functional characteristics of the knee and ankle joints and foot during static or dynamic therapy treatments. Orthoses used for static therapy are typically intended to unload the pressure on the knee joint, reducing its motion. They may consist of patient-worn prefabricated or custom-made static braces and/or A-frames. Knee orthoses intended for dynamic therapy usually consist of prefabricated or custom-made dynamic braces, typically including semi-rigid stays and straps encircling the thigh and leg, respectively, and an adjustable pivoting mechanism at the knee joint. Therapeutic KAFOs are frequently intended for infants with progressive bowing disorder due to abnormal grow of the tibia (known as tibia vara or Blount disease).
