Hip–knee–ankle–foot orthoses (HKAFOs) are normally KAFOs (usually bilateral) that are attached to a hip device (pelvic band, lumbar sacral orthoses [LSO], or thoracic lumbar sacral orthoses [TLSO]) for medical conditions warranting hip control. Paralysis of hip abductor muscles is one of the most common reasons for prescribing HKAFOs. HKAFOs are usually fabricated using mechanical hip joints, most commonly made of metal. They can incorporate flexion–extension and abduction–adduction control and have free or locking joints.
A KAFO is a long-leg orthosis that spans the knee, the ankle, and the foot in an effort to stabilize the joints and assist the muscles of the leg. While there are several common indications for such an Orthosis, muscle weakness and paralysis of the leg are the ones most frequently identified. The most common causes of muscle weakness include:

The Pavlik Harness is specially designed to gently position your baby’s hips so they are aligned in the joint, and to keep the hip joint secure. Since it is almost impossible to secure one hip by itself in the harness, both hips need to be positioned in the harness. This does not mean that your baby has problems with both hips. By positioning your baby’s hips in such a way that the hip joint is aligned and stable, it will help normal growth and development of the hip joint. There are several reasons why the harness needs to be used and the doctor will explain to you why it is necessary for your baby to be in one.
Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis is designed to change the position of the patient foot during normal daily life. The more involved and less mobile the foot, the more “pushing” the brace must do to hold the new foot position. The wrap around design is excellent at keeping this pressure spread out over large areas. An initial break-in period is recommended to allow the skin to toughen up slightly. The foot will also begin to relax in its new position through a decrease in total pressure. After an initial break-in period of intermittent wearing for the first 2 or 3 weeks, patient adapt quickly to wearing braces full time. DAFO’s are made from a variety of plastics, depending on the chosen brace style. They are thin and flexible, yet durable under normal wear. DAFOs should be worn with shoes for walking on hard surfaces or outside.

The Denis Browne bar, also known as the Denis Browne splint or foot abduction orthosis, is a medical device used in the treatment of club foot. The device is named after Sir Denis Browne (1892-1967), an Australian-born surgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London who was considered the father of pediatric surgery in the United Kingdom. Browne first described the device in 1934. The bar may be used as part of the Ponseti method, a series of nonsurgical techniques to address club foot. pack = 5 piece
