SCOTT CRAIG PARAPLEGIC ORTHOSES.
Bilateral knee ankle foot orthosis. Features thigh and knee support straps, medial and lateral metal supports and rigid shoe/ankle component. Design features include a rigid shoe/ankle component for one fixed point of balance (the floor reaction force will not be dissipated at the ankle joint); adding slight dorsiflexion of the ankle so that hip hyperextension is necessary to maintain balance, stabilizing hips to alleviate the need for hip joints and a pelvic band. Criteria for prescription: adequate upper extremity and shoulder girdle strength for handling crutches, adequate range of motion at the hips, knees and ankles. A tracing on lightweight cardboard with measurements complying with standard knee ankle foot orthosis fabrication information must accompany each order.
