KAFO for Recurvatum
A KAFO for preventing recurvatum of the knee and guiding the lower extremity. The places of the pelottes are defined by the optimal prevention of the supported recurvatum. The pelottes are made from leather or soft plastic. Fastened with Velcro straps. Made from either aluminium, steel, fibre- or heat moldable plastics. The motion of the knee joint is free. The ankle of the KAFO can be either jointed or fixed. The structure of the shoe insert (arch or foot plate) enables the correction of length differences.
