An ankle-foot orthosis, or AFO, is a support intended to control the position and motion of the ankle, compensate for weakness, or correct deformities. AFOs can be used to support weak limbs, or to position a limb with contracted muscles into a more normal position. In addition, AFOs are used to control foot drop caused by a variety of neurologic and musculoskeletal disorders. Due to the common use for addressing foot drop, AFO has become synonymous with the term “foot-drop brace”.
A typical AFO creates an L-shaped frame around the foot and ankle, extending from just below the knee to the metatarsal heads of the foot. AFO’s are available off the shelf or can be custom moulded to an individual wearer for to achieve specific target goal, there are 2 types of AFO’S. A static orthosis is flexible or rigid L shaped AFO with the upright portion behind the calf and the lower portion running under the foot. The static AFOs are mainly used for positioning or contracture preventions.it is not preferable to use for walking. Whereas A dynamic orthosis (articulated) is used to facilitate body motion to allow optimal function. A dynamic AFO provides subtalar stabilization while allowing free ankle dorsiflexion and free or restricted plantar flexion. Different types of AFOs meet specific needs according to the indication and Functional goal.
MOBILIS lower limb clinic offers more than 20 types of AFOs according the medical condition, therapy goal and expected functional outcome.
AFO can be fabricated of a variety of materials, including heat-mouldable plastics, metal, leather, carbon composite and different types joints. We use BOA system for closing and leather straps for durability and to achieve targeted positioning.
Control of ankle position. Compensate for muscle weakness (drop foot) caused by a stroke, spinal cord injury, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, polio, multiple sclerosis and peripheral neuropathy. Immobilize the ankle and lower leg in the presence of arthritis or fracture. Stabilization of the ankle and subtalar joint caused by adult acquire flat foot Enhance normal movement of the ankle, Minimize abnormal gait patterns Increase the efficiency of walking
The goal of AFO use is to stabilize the foot and ankle and provide toe clearance during the swing phase of gait. This helps decrease the risk of catching the toe and falling. To help prevent developing spasm and maintain functional position to help walking and to prevent deformity
A KAFO is a long-leg orthosis that spans the knee, the ankle, and the foot to stabilize the joints and assist the muscles of the leg. While there are several common indications for such an Orthosis like muscle weakness and paralysis of the leg are the ones most frequently identified.
Unlike the old technology KAFO with a locked knee joint. This provided stability to the knee to prevent involuntary flexion, but caused other associated problems like muscle atrophy and increased energy expenditure during gait. Within the past few years, several new innovative designs of knee joints have been available that can automatically lock and unlock at the appropriate phases of the gait cycle to allow a more fluidic walking style.
Each KAFO is custom-made to the specific requirements of the individual. There are numerous design options available that make usage of the Orthosis both functional and comfortable. A detailed examination and assessment of the patient allows us to suggest the best available component combination.
KAFO’s are mostly custom moulded to an individual wearer for to achieve specific target goal, and can be fabricated of a variety of materials, including heat-mouldable plastics, metal, leather, carbon composite, Boa closure and different types joints Etc, to make usage of the Orthosis both functional and comfortable
Unilateral leg paralysis / paresis Increased stability for AFO candidates Quadriceps weakness as a result of Poliomyelitis, Multiple Sclerosis, CVA, Femoral Nerve and Spinal Cord Injuries. Genu Recurvatum. Functional Outcome: Creates a more natural gait cycle by locking during stance phase and unlocking during swing phase. The automatic lock is initiated by knee extension, and is only released to swing freely when a knee extension movement and dorsiflexion occur simultaneously in terminal stance. The result is a more secure, efficient gait that also reduces the incidence of typical gait compensations. To help prevent developing spasm and maintain functional position to help walking and to prevent deformity.
The term HKAFO is stands for hip-knee-ankle-foot-orthosis and describes the part of the body that this device encompasses. This device is a basically a KAFO with the addition of a hip joint and pelvic section. (Please review KAFO information]
The addition of the hip joint and pelvic section provide control to selected hip motions. These selected motions about the hip are front to back, side to side, and rotation. One reason the hip section is added to a KAFO is to reduce or minimize the risk of the hip moving out of proper position or dislocating. Another common reason is to stabilize the hip and lower spine in cases where the patient is weak or paralyzed. designed for patients with high-level spinal cord dysfunction (congenital or traumatic) who would not otherwise be candidates for ambulation RGO as a lightweight bracing system that gives structural stance phase support to the lower trunk and lower limbs of the patient with lower extremity paralysis. it uses a cable-coupling system to provide hip joint motion for swing phase. In the RGO, via its cable system, flexion of one hip (in swing) results in extension of the other hip (concurrently in stance). The hip joints of the orthosis are coupled together using two Bowden cables to transmit the necessary forces (although the original design used a single cable, functional problems and subsequent revisions evolved into the use of a second cable). This reciprocal coupling has the added benefit of eliminating simultaneous hip flexion and reducing the risk of “jackknifing” during ambulation.
Because of the disparity in age and other characteristics of the patients ,each component of the orthosis is gauged in strength and size to the functional deficit of the patient, and to his age, weight and height. Components of each joint articulation, ankle, knee and hip are carefully chosen to use the patients’ residual functions and to apply proper corrective or supportive forces where needed. MOBILIS is proud to manufacture the device locally in UAE with superior quality.
HKAFO Patients with muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, cerebral palsy and traumatic injuries resulting in paraparesis or paraplegia.
RGO Children with myelomeningocele who had absence or weakness of the hip extensor mechanism.
Adults and children with paraplegia.
Children with thoracic and high lumbar level of paralysis.

Cranial Remoulding Clinic POSITIONAL HEAD DEFORMITIES
Most abnormal skull shapes come from the birth process and subsequent flattening of one side of the head [Positional head deformities]. It may also be related to a tightened neck muscle on one side (torticollis), abnormal neck spine (fusion) or abnormal eye muscles. MOBILIS cranial remoulding clinic provide detailed evaluation and solutions of head deformities if the parents acted on right time.
Foot Orthotics or Insoles are placed into shoes to control or correct abnormal lower limb motions and alignment. They are commonly known as orthotics, orthotic insoles, functional foot orthotics or orthotic inserts
There are many foot and ankle conditions where foot orthotics can be a solution. The most common abnormal motion that orthotics can correct is over pronation or flat feet. It is also used to treat plantar fasciitis, heel pain, metatarsalgia, shin pain, over pronation, flat feet collapsed arches, bunions and Achilles tendonitis. Etc,
Orthotics prevent movements that are excessive during movement and also in the speed of movement. For example, pronation at the incorrect time of the gait (walking) cycle or pronation that happens too rapidly will cause over use of the foot, injury and foot pain. Both types of pronation can be controlled with foot orthotics.
The aim of using a foot orthotic is to relieve the amount of strain on the foot which will reduce foot pain. This achieved by supporting the anatomical arches of the foot.
Foot orthotics are most effective when worn with well fitted supportive footwear. Even the most effective orthotic when placed into old worn out shoes will not function to its maximum.
MOBILIS has variety of solutions according to medical conditions and other selection parameters. Read more about MOBISOLE and PROPRIOSOLE which are the CAD designed orthotics manufactured by MOBILIS.
CAD custom foot orthotics/insole are designed and manufactured according to individual foot and medical conditions. Their functions include supporting the arches, correct the deviations, prevent foot abnormalities or deformities and offload painful or wounded areas. Varied practitioners, including certified prosthetists, orthotists and podiatrist, can do initial assessment and design your custom orthoses.
Our orthotic specialist assesses your feet and recommend the best suitable foot Orthotics according to your medical conditions, age, activity and shoe style.
We also guide our patient to choose the right shoes since the foot orthotics/Insoles and the shoes are considered as a unit because the inserts occupy volume inside the shoe. The effect of the orthotics also depends on the right shoes.
The Computer Aided Designed [CAD] insoles are digitally designed as per the individual foot shapes and medical conditions then send to milling machine which can carve the orthotics accurately as designed. Different material combinations used in different shoes based on the function, shoe type and property required. MOBILIS manufacturing facility have the skilled staff to manufacture high quality Foot orthotics to last long.
The assessments are done with digital scan or feet casting. The computerised feet pressure mapping /assessments will helps what exactly the cause of the problem or deviation in the normal feet biomechanics and more which can be lately will help us our clinician to design the right orthotics.
Our clinicians do the final fitting after a trail. An initial wearing guideline is given. appropriate period of “breaking in” should be allowed for a new user. If it causes pain or pressure to the foot, the practitioner can adjust to improve the fit. Adjustment and proper fitting of the orthosis is typically included in the package provided.
Follow Up A periodic adjustment is required for any new foot orthotics/Insoles. Our clinician will suggest a follow up plan during the final fitting.
Supra-Malleolar Orthosis [SMO] supports the leg just above the anklebones or malleoli. The SMO is considered the shortest of the Ankle Foot Orthoses or AFO’s.
The SMO is prescribed for patients who have soft, flexible, flat feet. SMO’s are often worn by children. The medical term for a flat foot is a pronated foot or pes planus, pes plano-valgus, and hyper-pronated foot.
The SMO is designed to maintain a vertical, or neutral heel while also supporting the three arches of the foot. This can help improve standing balance and walking.
Through the use of extremely thin, flexible thermoplastic or laminated special combination material, the SMO compresses the soft tissues of the foot with its patented design; stabilizing children’s foot while still allowing for natural development.
Pronation Hypotonia Triplanar instability in weight bearing Inability to stand independently Mild toe-walking Developmental delay Delay in acquiring gross motor skills Poor coordination or balance
The SMO is designed to maintain a vertical, or neutral, heel while also supporting the arches of the foot. The SMO can help improve standing balance and walking.
The TR ring orthosis is a custom-made orthosis to correct talus repositioning with outer shell -a concave-shaped surface on the lower end of the fibula bone made of poly propylene or laminated resin and an inner soft wall liner with silicon or other soft padding materials. The force created by T shaped orthotic frame during vertical loading keeps the heel [hindfoot]in a physiological position. which also restrict movement in the chopart joint.
During the entire manufacturing process, the functional elevation of the hindfoot is given the greatest importance. Only a very accurate fitted orthosis can fulfill the necessary correction of the foot. A careful measurement and manufacturing are necessary for the best outcome.
Children and adolescents with flat feet or spastic flat feet with Talar reposition.
The orthoses should be worn between 9 months to 1 ½ years for satisfactory results
A correction of the hindfoot is achieved by a rotational movement. by correcting talus (bone in the ankle joint) to achieve the Normal biomechanics in walking
Orthopaedic Shoe raise made as per the Limb length discrepancy of each patient after confirming Physical examination and LLD measurements.
Leg length Discrepancy more than 1 cm or More. Low back pain has been associated with LLD. Hip pain Associated with LLD. Osteoarthritis because asymmetric loading of the joints of the low back and hip might result in increased joint arthritis. Stress Fractures association with LLD. Ankle pain due to various forms of tendonitis may exist relative to the position the hindfoot takes during compensation
A clinical biomechanics practice should increasingly consider lift therapy as a vital aspect of addressing LLDs and to alleviate the symptoms

MOBILIS Spine clinic is one of the best spine deformity conservative solution provider with a multidisciplinary team in the region. We work closely with spine specialist surgeons and other allied health professionals to achieve the best outcome.
MOBILIS Spine clinic is one of the best spine deformity conservative solution provider with a multidisciplinary team in the region. We work closely with spine specialist surgeons and other allied health professionals to achieve the effective outcome. An evidence-based practice with experienced clinicians and hundreds of happy customers makes us unique in the region.
Through decades of experience and regional reputation in the treatment of spinal column especially conditions like Scoliosis, Kyphosis, we work according to the most modern protocols. The prerequisite for a successful treatment of all spinal diseases is our modern diagnostics and interdisciplinary treatment by experienced clinicians from GERMANY, the earlier the treatment is started, the better the outcome.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine in several levels. A side bend is simultaneously associated with a rotation of the individual vertebral bodies. The ribs connected to the vertebral bodies also rotate, they form so-called rib hump in the area of the thoracic spine. The rotation produces in the lumbar spine area then so-called lumbar bulge. The restoration is much favourable by scoliosis correction brace if the patient is at young age. A correction of the curvature by a Scoli3D™ brace and physiotherapy [Schroth therapy] is effective only in the growth stage, Afterword’s no chance for improvement.
Scoliosis spine curves classified based on which of the three regions of the spine affected; the upper thoracic, main thoracic and thoracolumbar/lumbar and it is also important to know the deformity is structural or non-structural. The spine specialist classifies the curve types before the patient visit MOBILIS. Our clinician uses these classification systems to choose the right correction method.
The deformed spine assessed by a Certified Orthotic spine specialist once your doctor diagnosed and prescribed for custom scoliosis brace. The accurate measurements are important for our clinicians to achieve perfect fitting and to decide force directions which will influence the final outcome.
A spine X-Ray is mandatory during the orthotic assessment
MOBILIS use the latest white light 3D scanner to capture the actual measurements convert to digital form where our clinicians can do necessary corrections before it sends for manufacturing process.
MOBILIS spine clinic offers SCOLI3D brace -a computer aided designed [CAD] brace after a thorough scoliosis orthotic assessment. Based on the proven principles of world leading scoliosis researchers, MOBILIS is proud to develop our own design. The SCOLI3D brace treatment is designed to account all the aspects of scoliosis curve. Each brace is individually designed and manufactured. The goal of the treatment is a gradual elongation and straitening of the spine.
Our 7 Axis robotic carving for manufacturing the orthotic devices can do much faster job and digital measurement will help us to take care every minute details.
During trial fitting, fit is checked very carefully, small corrections are made and the patient gets time to try the corset after each change. specialist has to control these changes afterwards. Only then an optimal fit can be guaranteed at home.
After two weeks of wear, we arrange a control appointment, during which the pressure zones can be checked and, if necessary, padded.
Our International customers can break the que for express delivery by choosing VIP service package.
MOBILIS scoliosis clinic insist our clients a year-long follow up programme for the best outcome. The programme includes follow up consultations and growth adjustments which is necessary once the curve is progressing
Our clinicians follow bespoke programme which is proven and effective. We integrate a tiny wearing time tracking sensor inside the brace with after the patient consent which will allow us to track the actual wearing time of the brace. This also help us to plan and guide the best treatment plan till the next follow up visit.
A strict therapy programme should be followed and monitored for optimal outcome.
Kyphosis is an excessive outward curve of the spine results in an abnormal rounding of the upper back. The condition also known as roundback or hunchback. Kyphosis can occur at any age, but is common during adolescence. The condition usually stops progressing once a child is older and has stopped growing.
Kyphosis caused by poor posture (postural kyphosis) doesn’t need any treatment.it can usually be corrected by improving your posture and strengthening exercise.
If a child has kyphosis as a result of abnormally shaped vertebrae (Scheuermann’s kyphosis), may need custom brace therapy combined with physiotherapy. Surgery is often required for children born with congenital kyphosis.
Your treating physician decide the treatment based on factors such as person’s age, sex, severity of the curve, how flexible the curve is etc,
Teenagers with mild to moderate kyphosis are often prescribed to wear a custom kyphosis brace. The brace is worn while the bones are still growing and this will prevent the curve getting worse.
Wearing a brace may feel uncomfortable in first few days. However, most people get used to them after a while. MOBILIS designers make sure, braces are designed to be convenient, aesthetically good and comfortable, so the person can do range of physical activities with the brace.
The person needs to wear the brace until the spine stops growing, which is usually around 14 or 15 years old which will be decided by treating physician and MOBILIS Orthotist.
Bracing isn’t usually recommended for adults who have stopped growing because it won’t correct the position of the spine.

Can occur when a baby sleeps in the same position repeatedly or because of problems with the neck muscles (torticollis). Infants’ heads are soft to allow for the incredible brain growth that occurs in the first year of life, they’re susceptible to being “moulded” into a flat shape. Fortunately, positional plagiocephaly usually is easy to treat, and with appropriate intervention will correct itself by the time a child is 1 year old.
Premature babies are more vulnerable to positional head deformities because their skulls are softer than those of full-term babies and because their medical needs sometimes result in spending a great deal of time on their backs without being moved or picked up.
Positional head deformities shouldn’t be confused with craniosynostosis, a more serious condition that occurs when skull bones fuse together too soon, causing an abnormal skull shape and possible brain damage if the condition is not corrected. Craniosynostosis is usually corrected with surgery.
A child’s physician usually makes a diagnosis of positional plagiocephaly simply by examining the child’s head. The doctor will also note whether regular repositioning of your child’s head during sleep up to 4 months of age if successfully reshapes the growing skull over time. X-rays or a CT scan of may be necessary to confirm diagnosis or clarify if the skull bones are normally separated or if they fused together too soon. If the bones are not fused, the doctor will confirm that the child has positional head deformity and prescribe a cranial remoulding bands.
The physician refers to MOBILIS cranial remoulding clinic with infants between 4 to 12 months which is proven the best result possible. 12-16 Months with partial results or Post-surgical use – to apply pressure to irregular and “bulging” shaped parts of the skull and relieve pressure from other parts, enabling growth in the flatter areas of the skull.
Plagiocephaly Bands, known as cranial orthoses or cranial helmet, aim to improve symmetry of a baby’s skull. If repositioning alone has not been effective, at MOBILIS Clinic we use custom made MOBILIS Bands to gently guide growth and restore normal head shape and orthosis is designed to be used in infants during the period of greatest skull growth. It is a highly skilled job to design a device which should be gentle to the skin and same time it should correct the deformity.
Using our unique 3D scanning technique which first time prosthetic and orthotic industry, we can have highly precise measurements to create a custom-made MOBILIS helmet to fit your child. The Bands are available in a wide range of colours and patterns for you to design your helmet.
MOBILIS will give a clear instruction for follow up visit details. after the final fitting the child should be seen by MOBILIS clinician after 1 week to check the comforts, pressure points comfort and 2nd week for trouble shooting if any. Further follow up visits are recommended in every 3 weeks intervals at least for 3-4 months’ period.

CAD custom foot orthotics
FOOT ORTHOTICS OR INSOLES:
Pectus deformities are typically not life-threatening, but can affect your child’s quality of life, and in some cases their heart and lung function. Your paediatric orthopaedic or child physician makes the decision the best treatment options suitable for your chest wall disorders.
Dynamic Chest Compressor OrthosisTo treat chest deformities like pectus carinatum and Pectus Excavatum involves wearing a custom-made brace – the Dynamic Chest Compressor – combined with a programme of daily exercises.
A congenital deformity of the anterior chest wall, and occurs when the breast bone is pushed outward by an abnormal overgrowth of cartilage. Pigeon chest affects around one in 1,500 people and is slightly less common than Pectus Excavatum.
Pectus Carinatum can also appear as part of another condition like scoliosis, but is also associated with rarer musculoskeletal syndromes like Marfan syndrome.
Dynamic Chest Compressor orthosis for Pectus carinatum applies constant pressure over the area of the chest that needs to be remodelled. Because pectus carinatum is caused by the chest protruding, we use a brace which fits over the apex of the chest to push it in. the ribs tend to flare while chest pushing in also need to be accounted.
A common form of congenital chest deformity, also referred to as ‘sunken’ or ‘funnel’ chest. Pectus excavatum occurs in an estimated 1 in 300-400 and 3-5 times more common in men. It happens when the chest bone is pushed inwards by overgrowth of cartilage between the ribs and the breast bone. The condition tends to become exaggerated during puberty where growth spurts cause the cartilage and bones to grow at a rapid rate. The sternum becomes caved in, looking “dented”. The ribs often tend to flare out as a result of the excavatum area sinking inwards. Scoliosis is also associated with the disorder.
Dynamic Chest Compressor orthosis for Pectus Excavatum involves wearing a custom brace – the Dynamic Chest Compressor – in combination with the use of a device called the ‘Vacuum Bell’ and a programme of daily exercises. The Vacuum Bell mechanism uses a suction cup to create a vacuum at the anterior chest wall, used to lift the sternum up and out. The brace is used with the vacuum bell to enhance the correction, and to also correct rib flaring.
For patients considering MOBILIS non-surgical treatments for pectus carinatum and Pectus Eccavatum,. Our clinicians will examine your chest and also your general posture. They will look at your alignment from head to toe if required, examine signs of asymmetry before the measurements.
As one gets older, the chest becomes more rigid and results are sometimes harder to achieve. The chest is more malleable in adolescents and children and tends to get stiffer as the skeleton matures. Patients with pectus carinatum and Pectus excavatum who comply with the required exercises will respond well to orthotic bracing, and there are normally two phases; one initial phase until correction is achieved and the next phase for maintenance, during which the brace is only worn at night. The most important factor in achieving a good result is compliance to the treatment programme and regular reviews preferably in MOBILIS clinic Length of treatment varies on the age of the patient, the elasticity of the chest and the severity of the pectus carinatum. All pectus braces and treatment are tailored bespoke to each individual’s needs.

FOOT DROP– Inability of ankle joint to move partially or fully upwards[dorsiflexion] because of muscle weakness
STROKE -CVA [Cardio Vascular Accidents] -Brain cells are damaged or died because of interrupted blood supply to brain results Partial or full paralysis of the body.
POST POLIOS SYNDROME– polio or infantile paralysis, is an infectious disease caused by the poliovirus. Common symptoms of post-polio syndrome include: Progressive muscle and joint weakness and pain, General fatigue and exhaustion with minimal activity, Muscle atrophy and other associated symptoms.
BRAIN INJURY– Traumatic or non-traumatic brain injury leads to neuro muscular impairments
SPINAL CORD INJURY– This led to temporary or permanent changes in the muscle, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury.
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS[MS]– is an abnormal response of the body’s immune system against the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. Results multiple varied signs and symptoms includes Numbness or weakness in one or more limbs and trunk.
OSTEOARTHRISTIS [OA] -It is a degenerative disease affects the joints which leads to pain, range of motion and associated weakness in the muscle because of less mobility. MOBILIS ORTHOTIC CLINIC provides orthoses, braces and supports designed for the leg, hip, knee, foot & ankle and upper limb which is used for a range of needs from mobility, stability or immobilization. Book an appointment with one of our licensed clinicians to assess and suggest the best which is suitable for your medical condition or therapy goals.

The C-Brace from Ottobock-Germany, A smart Knee ankle foot brace with an intelligent system to control the functions automatically. It opens up entirely new possibilities for users with its microprocessor sensor technology. Flexing under load while sitting down, navigating slopes, walking on uneven terrain, or going down stairs step over step–all this defines a new level of mobility. The C-Brace is smaller and lighter, so the user does not need to exert as much energy while walking. This also allows the user to wear the orthosis underneath their clothing. The microprocessor sensor makes the entire gait pattern more dynamic and responsive. The user can also change settings on their joint: switching to cycling mode, using the smartphone app.
Freedom of movement Walking slowly or quickly, on inclines or rough terrain, avoiding tripping situations, walking down stairs step-over-step, or flexing the leg under a load: the C-Brace lets users experience an entirely new freedom of movement.
The C-Brace is small enough to be worn inconspicuously under clothing, and because it’s lightweight, the user expends less energy while walking.
The C-Brace enhances safety by responding in real time, including in possible tripping situations. The user can step or sit down with the knee flexed, and walk on uneven terrain or slopes.
App control for user and orthotist Users can conveniently control their C-Brace with the Cockpit app, for example when switching to cycling mode. The O&P professional uses the Setup app to individually adjust the C-Brace in simple steps.
The microprocessor sensor technology makes the C-Brace even more intuitive to use; movement patterns are more dynamic and responsive.
The C-Brace consists of individually fabricated thigh, calf, and foot components. An ankle joint, unilateral or bilateral fitting, or an individual spring element connects the foot and calf components. The sensor system continuously measures the flexion of the knee joint and its angular acceleration. This lets the C-Brace detect the user’s current walking phase, so it can regulate the hydraulic resistances as well as control the flexion and extension of the knee joint.

Functional Hand Splint: To treat any wrist/hand/finger paralysis/Injury from fresh stroke, brain or spinal cord injuries to moderate deformities[contractures] and pain. This encourages joints to relax,Provides passive stretch to relengthen shortened muscles and tendon, or Prevents deformities if treated in early stages.
A stroke or injuries to the central or peripheral nervous system may lead to paralysis in the shoulder will lead pain and moving your arm is difficult for you. This results in pain in shoulder area and restricts arm movement. Dislocation of the shoulder joint from the socket is one reason for shoulder pain. The Shoulder support corrects the alignment of the humerus head with the joint socket and therefore alleviates the cause of the pain. It helps stabilise the shoulder and position it correctly again. This provides noticeable relief, alleviates pain and leads to a better overall body posture.the orthosis can now be applied by patients themselves with one hand. Knee Immobilizer: Knee immobilizers are often used to stabilize knee joint for initial standing training and positioning after stroke to provide maximum immobilization of the knee joint and prevent contracture.
