Walk, run, hike, or get back to your golf game with knee ankle foot orthotics from Evolve Prosthetics & Orthotics in Las Vegas, NV. Find out more about how the right fitting supportive device can make all the difference. A lower limb injury, weakness, or paralysis doesn’t have to mean giving up the places you want to go and doing the things you love to do.
What Is A KAFO?
A knee ankle foot orthotic, or KAFO, is a supportive device that extends from above your knee and includes your ankle and foot. It is used to better control and align your knee joint in conjunction with the ankle and foot, so you can walk, stand, and move more comfortably, naturally, and confidently.
There are many reasons your doctor might prescribe this type of lower limb orthotic for you.
- Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT)
- Musculoskeletal Disorders
- Cerebral Palsy
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Drop Foot
Types Of Knee Ankle Foot Orthotics
You’ll find KAFOs made from a variety of materials and with a range of knee joint options. Carbon fiber, plastic, metal, and leather orthoses are available. You may need a KAFO with locking, non-locking, or stance control capabilities. Depending on your lifestyle, desired use, and your specific condition, your orthotist can help you determine the best type and style of KAFO for you.

Many of our KAFO leg braces are made of carbon fiber by orthotics manufacturers and then fitted in our clinic. We will work with you to make sure your KAFO fits just right.
