Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthoses (KAFOs)
Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics knee-ankle-foot orthoses (KAFO) address dysfunction at the ankle and knee together. With few exceptions, the ankle portion of the KAFO brace is also available as a standalone AFO. The knee joint can be solid (locked) or can allow for a certain range of motion.
Custom Metal/Leather KAFO
Double upright orthosis extending from thigh to foot providing for frontal, sagittal and transverse plane control of the knee and ankle. Many options are available for specific orthotic requirements including:
- Various knee and ankle joints
- Drop locks and retainer buttons
- Varus/valgus correction knee pads
Custom Metal/Thermoplastic KAFO
Same indications and biomechanics of the Metal/Leather KAFO but with plastic thigh cuff and an AFO section for better ankle/foot control. Indicated for control of motion and alignment of knee and ankle.
