Peter says, " What stance control joints can do for knee instability."

Stance control knee joints have been a huge advance in the orthotic intervention for knee instabilities. They operate very much like a prosthetic knee joint to create stability at stance phase and release for knee flexion at initial swing phase.

It gets us much closer to the ideal of taking away the "bad" motion without affecting the "good motion".

Check out these excellent stance control joint resources.

We will be updating our website in the very near future. All the information you will need for the documentation details will be available.

Documentation Corner
A patient will only qualify for a KAFO (Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis) if they meet the criteria for an AFO (Ankle Foot Orthosis) and also have documented knee instability.

The information / justification must be in the prescribing physicians clinical notes.

This video is a great reminder that everyone is capable of achieving great things and sometimes we just need that one person to believe we can do it and give us that extra push!
