Posterior Knee Orthoses

The PFS Med Posterior Knee Orthosis (PKO) converts the TAFO into a Knee Tibial Ankle Foot Orthosis (KTAFO or KAFO) for positioning at 0 - 5° knee flexion. Strategically placed straps provide counterforce while relieving circumferential pressure. The PKO allows easy access for dressing changes, wound care, arterial monitoring, and therapeutic range of motion exercises and can be easily attached and removed from any adult-size TAFO.
