• The FCP carbon fiber orthosis is a K.A.F.O designed to compensate for knee disorders of neurological, muscular, ligamentous or bony origin, associated or not with hip or hankle deficiencies.
  • It is composed of carbon fiber uprights and bands but also of free knee or locking knee joints. It can be completed by a thermoformed AFO, ankle joints and spurs or stirrups.
  • Custom-built using a cast or an outline, by thermoforming carbon components using 5G40-A forming table.
  • Secures standing and walking phases  with or without technical assistance devices (walking stick or walker).
  • Lightweight and resistant thanks to carbon fiber properties.
  • Its elsaticity preserves physiological joints and improves walking comfort by absorbing the shocks.
  • Modular : modifications are possible in case of weight gain or loss.
