Knee Ankle Foot Orthoses (KAFOs)

Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics knee-ankle-foot orthoses (KAFOs) 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

The Boston O&P custom metal/leather KAFO is a 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

The Boston O&P custom metal/thermoplastic KAFO offers the same indications and biomechanics of the metal/leather KAFO but with a plastic thigh cuff and an AFO section for better ankle/foot control. The custom metal/thermoplastic KAFO is indicated for control of motion and alignment of knee and ankle.
