Orthoses, Lower Limb, Knee, Gait

Definition : Knee orthoses designed to support and assist the knee joint during normal motion, making it possible to perform independent gait. These orthoses may consist of prefabricated or custom-made devices, typically including soft cuffs fixed at the thigh and leg respectively, multiple straps, and an adjustable ratchet or elastic spring mechanism (orthotic knee) that may include several locking positions at different knee angles. Functional knee (gait) orthoses are intended for long-term use in normal activities by patients with weak knee ligaments and/or other congenital or traumatic loss of knee flexibility or strength.
