Ottobock, known for outstanding products brings Free Walk™ KAFO enabling patients stand securely and walk smoothly without difficulty. This special orthotic system locks knee joint at time of stance phase and automatically releases the same during swing phase. It helps patients bend their legs and thus eliminates requirement for much energy while walking. Free Walk™ KAFO minimizes stress on the knee joint, hips and back. Unlike conventional orthotic system, Free Walk™ KAFO effectively minimizes unnatural movements brought by hyperextension of the joint in combination to compensatory of gluteus muscles. This device also works wonders in preventing secondary damages such as arthrosis pain and ligament instabilities.
