    KAFO’s – Knee Ankle Foot Orthotics


    • Townsend Design KAFO Knee Ankle Foot Orthotic - Sunshine Prosthetics and Orthotics, Wayne NJ
      KAFO Townsend Design


    Townsend Design – Knee Ankle Specialty Bracing using solid core graphite shell designs combined with patented knee and ankle hinge technology. The result is a rigid, durable bracing solution that achieves more effective and consistent control. Ultra light, extremely low profile, and cosmetically appealing, these designs optimize patient compliance and satisfaction.

    Otto Bock FreeWalk Stance Control System was developed for patients who, due to a partial paralysis or a complete failure of the knee extensors, are unable to stabilize their knee without compensatory measures. Their innovative design creates a more natural gait cycle by locking during stance phase and unlocking during swing phase. The automatic lock is initiated by knee extension, and is only released to swing freely when a knee extension moment and dorsiflexion occur simultaneously during terminal stance. The result is a more secure, efficient gait that also reduces the incidence of typical gait compensations.

    • Free swing phase, secure stance phase
    • Smooth gait pattern
    • Individually fabricated
    • Lightweight, thin, and stable
    • Suitable for a weight of up to 120 kilograms / 265 pounds
    • Unilateral joint bar


    Ottobock C-Brace – provides dynamic control of the entire gait cycle — stance and swing phases — in real time. Movement is smoother, safer, more controlled, and more stable, even on uneven terrain. C-Brace is the first system available to utilize advanced sensor arrays, microprocessor controls, and management of the gait cycle to dramatically improve a person’s walking ability, using electronic and mechanical systems. C-Brace was designed to help compensate for lower-limb mobility issues due to partial paralysis, incomplete spinal cord injury, post-polio syndrome, quadriceps weakness, and post-stroke. If your leg brace doesn’t let you change speeds while walking or allow you to put weight on your flexed knee when you sit down or walk down stairs, the C-Brace may help expand your activities.

    • Strengthen muscles that previously were rarely used
    • Reduce muscular atrophies (muscle wasting)
    • Prevent contractures (stiffening of muscles, tendons, or other tissue) and joint damage caused by immobilization
    • Retain cardiovascular performance (endurance) for everyday activities
    • Reduce contralateral limb pain and overuse injuries
