Objectives:Mechanical orthoses, such as the hip knee ankle foot orthosis (HKAFO) and the isocentric reciprocating gait orthosis (IRGO), are both used for walking in spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. The aim of this study was to analyze the energy expenditure during walking with these orthoses compared with a powered gait orthosis (PGO) in patients with SCI.Methods:Five patients with SCI who were experienced users of HKAFOs participated in this study. Subjects were also fitted with an IRGO and… CONTINUE READING
