TLHKAFO, Parapodium, bilateral, standing support, prefabricated

Description

Device to stabilise the hip, knee and ankle joints bilaterally by locking the joints. Includes a thoracic support. The frame is at the height of the feet connected with a platform. Lateral movements initiated at the pelvis region, cause a tilting effect which turns the platform and moves it forward. The parapodium enables moving in standing position by balancing. Unlike the standing brace, the hip and knee joints can be unlocked for sitting. Normal use at children in growth period.
Built individually from ready-made kits.
