Abstract

If certain criteria are met, knee-ankle-foot orthoses (KAFO) may be prescribed for paraplegic individuals. It has recently been suggested that standing may also be achieved by these individuals using functional electrical stimulation (FES). To determine the efficacy of KAFO braces and FES in providing postural stability for paraplegic individuals quantitative analysis of the center of force was performed. Four paraplegic individuals using these assistive devices for standing under a variety of conditions were tested, and seven neurologically normal individuals served as controls. Study results are reported.
