Design, Construction and Evaluation of an Electromechanical Stance-Control Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthosis

A new electromechanical stance-control knee-ankle-foot orthosis (SCKAFO) was designed to provide improved gait for people with knee-extensor weakness. This SCKAFO inhibits knee flexion at any knee angle while allowing knee extension during weight bearing. During swing or other non-weight bearing activities, the SCKAFO allows free knee motion. A prototype… CONTINUE READING
