KiddieGAIT—The Latest ToeOFF Product
February 01, 2009
KiddieGAITTM is an engineered composite frame with anterior shell, lateral strut, and an energy-reflecting footplate with open calcaneus, all designed to allow customization of the frame into a ground-reaction AFO or a partial-foot prosthesis. The energy-reflecting properties of this system reduce the amount of energy required to lift and move the foot forward.
The anterior shell design triggers enhanced "position in space" proprioceptive response and assists in management of proximal deficits by helping to overcome either knee hyperextension or crouch gait. Functional environments can be created that supplement gait function instead of immobilizing and inhibiting function.
