HKAFO

HKAFO

This individually manufactured HKAFO is used on children with spinal cord injuries, i.e. L3 to L1 level of meningomyelocele. The ankle joint can be made static, free-moving or with a dorsiflexion limit. Knee joint is usually supplied with a lock that can be opened when i.e. sitting down. The hip joint can be made to allow from one to three different movement directions, depending on the users muscle functions. One movement direction is the flexion-extension of the hip joint while walking. In two movements the adduction and abduction is added and the third possibility is the rotation of the hip.
