One reason the hip section is added to a KAFO is to reduce or minimize the risk of the hip moving out of proper position or dislocating. Another common reason is to stabilize the hip & lower spine in cases where the patient is weak or paralyzed.


KAFOs are commonly used to treat symptoms due to spinabifida, cerebral palsy, paraplegia, polio, trauma or muscular dystrophy. KAFOs with a knee lock are generally used to keep the knee from bending when there is a loss of or weakness of the muscles (quadriceps) that straighten the knee. When there is adequate strength and only support of the ligaments is needed as in sports injury, the lock ad foot sections are not needed. Such a device is called a knee brace or Orthosis. KAFOs and knee braces come is various designs and the appropriateness of each design is determined by the type of deformity and functional levels of the individual.

AFOx are externally applied and are intended to control position and motion of the ankle, compensate for weakness or correct deformities. AFOs are commonly used in the treatment of disorder that affect muscle function such as stroke, spinal and peripheral neuropathy. AFOs can be used to provide support weak or wasted limbs or to position a limb with tight, contracted muscles into a more normal position. They are also use to immobilize the ankle and lower leg in the presence of arthritis or fracture and to correct foot drops. A AFO may also be referred to as foot - drop brace.
