This orthosis is a full leg length device that supports the limb following a fracture of the lower femur (thigh bone) or upper tibia (shin bone). The purpose of the KAFO fracture brace is to stabilize the broken bone allowing it to heal in the proper position. A KAFO fracture brace encompasses more of the leg than a conventional KAFO and is more supportive of the bone. The brace is made of a flexible plastic and extends from the bottom of the foot to the top of the thigh. The KAFO has hinges at the knee and ankle that can be either locked stiff or left free to allow full motion at these joints.
Customized according to the patient’s needs,sizes and particular requirments.
