Does microprocessor controlled knee movement influence common activities of daily living when using a knee-ankle-foot orthosis?


Activities of daily living are physically demanding tasks for KAFO users. MPKAFO use increased knee power absorption and net negative work during stair descent and altered task execution time and reduced inter-limb loading asymmetry during sitting.
