What Is a Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthosis (KAFO)?
A KAFO leg brace is a type of orthosis or full-leg splint that covers the knee, ankle, and foot joints. It compensates for muscle weakness, paralysis, or skeletal problems that lead to lower limb instability.
KAFO braces make standing and walking easier by controlling instability, preventing excessive motion, improving alignment, and reducing joint pain.
At PrimeCare, we provide patients with customized KAFOs based on detailed examinations and assessments. As such, every KAFO brace is tailored for maximum comfort and functionality.
