Knee Orthosis KO
Post-op extended lever KO This KO has a long lever arm extending from just above the ankle to just below the groin for greater control of the knee. It is used post-op to limit the range of motion in the knee.

Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis KAFO
The KAFO is used to stabilize a knee that buckles in flexion, hyperextension, due to muscle weakness or mechanical instability.
The drop lock knee joint is a very stable and relatively trouble free knee joint. It requires some balance to operate the joint while standing. There is also a 180 degree extension stop.
Dial Lock Drop Lock Knee Joint By using a serrated disc, the Orthotist may increase or decrease the knee extension angle by 6° increments to accommodate knee flexion contractures. There is also a 180 degree extension stop.
The ratchet knee joints lock automatically while standing as long as the lock mechanism is engaged. There is an audible clicking as progressive degrees of extension are achieved. Each joint is manually unlocked. There is a 180 degree extension stop.
The Limited Range of Motion Drop Lock Knee Joint Knee Joint allows 0 to 30 degrees of flexion with the drop lock engaged. With the drop lock disengaged it allows free flexion it also has a 180 degree extension stop
The swing phase lock knee joint locks during stance phase of the gait cycle and is free during swing phase. The SPL is intended for patients with partialor total paralysis of the knee extensors and can be used as a KO or KAFO, with or without articulating ankle joints. It is not recommended for those with more proximal impairment of the hip musculature.
Hip Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis HKAFO
Hip Spika is used to prevent unwanted movement of the hip. It controls adduction, abduction, flexion and extension of the hip at any degree of range of motion.
LSO Hip Spika has extended leverage immobilization of the lumbosacral joint , Post-operative spinal situations, Post-operative hip replacement and pre-operative situations. We offer a wide range of hip joints depending on the patients need.
Static Hip Spika The static hip orthosis is predominantly utilized in cases where complete immobilization of the hip joint or lower spine is indicated.
Reciprocation Gait orthosis LSHKAFO is comprised of a molded pelvic section that has 2 hip joints connected by cables. When one hip joint flexes the other extends. These are attached to bilateral KAFOs. This system allows the paraplegic to walk with a reciprocating gait.
Walkabout medial hinge HKAFO Reciprocating Orthosis is a new brace concept of Australian origin for paraplegia patients and similar cases. Walkabout has a reciprocating joint that is attached to the inner side bars of the lower extremities orthosis. In other reciprocating orthosis the joint is fastened on the outer bars in truanted-level. In Walkabout the pelvis-part is elastic, attaching to the reciprocating joint. The structure fits well under clothes and is comfortable to wear.
