Abstract

A dynamic knee brace system (DKBS) has been designed which automatically allows swing phase freedom and provides stance phase stability. Kinemtic data from a normal subject using the DKBS document nearly normal dynamic knee flexion during swing (52 degree vs. 60 degrees for normal). Kinetic data show that net internal extensor knee moments extend through all of stance phase, crossing over to net flexor moments during early swing for both locked KAFO and with the DKBS. This data demonstrates that the DKBS is able to provide the necessary stance phase knee joint stability while allowing normal swing phase mobility.
