HKAFO (Hip-Knee-Ankle-Foot-Orthosis)

The HKAFO is a KAFO (knee-ankle-foot-orthosis) with an extension of hip joint and pelvic components.  This device is used on patients requiring more stability of the hip and lower torso, due to paralysis and weakness, in addition to the lower extremity involvement.  The brace will provide pelvic stability in several planes, from rotation, to side-to-side, and front-to-back motions.  Primarily the hip section and hip joint of the brace stabilizes and aligns the lower leg underneath, reducing unwanted motion, while increasing steps per minute and reducing energy expenditure.

HKAFO’s are used for patients with paraplegia, spina bifida, recurrent hip dislocation and other high neurological impairments.
