AFO alignment, stiffness, and pre-load torque uniquely influence biomechanical variables in gait

Short description

In this study, an instrumented multi-function ankle-foot orthosis with independently adjustable stiffness, torque threshold and ankle alignment was used to investigate the unique and isolated influence of these AFO mechanical characteristics on gait kinetics and kinematics for a patient with CMT.
