This item and the vast majority of items I offer for sale on ebay were acquired through an estate sale, bankruptcy sale, auction house, sunken ship, barn, shed or a storage facility that liquidated the entire contents of a storage bay where the monthly rental fee went unpaid for more than 3 months. I am a treasure hunter and a true picker for many years, I followed in my Grandfathers footsteps and a true soul he was. Any questions please feel free to e-mail or call at:   or 954-258-0064

I do the best I can to describe each item I sell, determining what an item is or does, and what the features and functions are. I have most of my items tested by certified technicians for that specific item before listing them on ebay to make sure they work properly. In some cases there may be certain functions I am unable to test for a variety of reasons.  I would not sell something to anybody else that I would not use myself.

What is a KAFO?

A knee-ankle-foot orthosis (KAFO) is an externally applied orthopedic appliance which encompasses the foot, ankle, lower leg, knee and thigh. The KAFO provides the features of an AFO but in addition provides protection, correction and support of the knee joint.

Some KAFOs are still made from metal and leather but most designs now use thermoplastics with metal only being used for the hinges at the knee. The lightweight plastic designs offer more support, are more cosmetically acceptable and can fit into various shoe designs. While the metal braces are more adjustable, they tend to be heavier, bulkier and require special attachments for fitting to shoes. A heavier shoe is also generally required when using the metal brace. Very lightweight carbon fibre designs also exist but are not economical, lack adjustability and are rarely more suitable than thermoplastic designs.

KAFOs are commonly used to treat symptoms due to spina bifida, 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 and foot section are not needed. Such a device is called a knee brace or orthosis.

KAFOs and knee braces come in various designs and the appropriateness of each design is determined by the type of deformity and functional levels of the individual.

Brace Appears To Be VERY gently used and is in EXCELLENT condition.

Measurements: Total height from the highest point to foot plate 29 1/4 inches, heel plate is approx  2 3/4 inches, Calf is approx 4 1/2 inches side to side, Thigh is approx 6 3/4 inches side to side, heel plate to center of knee joint is approx 19 1/2 inches. Brace has a locking knee joint. ........ .. Comes Exactly As Pictured..........I believe this can be heated and re-molded to give you a better fit if it does not already conform to your leg perfectly.
