Neuro bracing can be divided into lower and upper extremity bracing. Lower extremity neuro orthotics is further sub-divided into AFOs (ankle-foot-orthotics), KO (Knee Orthotics) and KAFO (Knee-ankle-foot orthotics).
These are further divided in “supportive” and “corrective” Neurological bracing:
- Supportive – supporting the affected joint to improve function and stability.
- Corrective– correcting the anatomical alignment of a joint or body segment to improve function or cosmesis.
There are both off the shelf and custom bracing options available. Our Orthotists will be able to assess whether an OTS brace will be suitable or if you require a custom-made brace.
