The ParaPod from Fillauer
May 31, 2010
The ParaPod comes in a kit-form that can be sized and assembled easily, and costs significantly less than conventional HKAFOs. The kit provides an exoskeleton worn over clothing that consists of shoe clamps, aluminum uprights, foam knee blocks, and upper-back and chest supports. The aluminum uprights are sized at the knee and hip and are cut to length. Additional tubes can be cut to a longer length to accommodate growth.
