PRAFO® 752skt Features Overview
introducing the 752SKT Bariatric APU® Orthosis. This AFO was designed to accommodate your larger patients up to 136 Kg in weight. The Bariatric APU® Orthosis can be used with the ambulatory patient as well as the recumbent patient and offers the same functionality as the standard APU® (Adjustable Posterior Upright) Orthosis by utilising the heavy duty APU® joint.
The 752SKT APU®
The 752SKT APU® Articulating Ankle/Foot Orthosis is an Adjustable Posterior Upright design that provides the clinician a more precise and simplified method of setting the ankle/foot complex in the sagittal plane. The posterior approach requires controlling one upright joint, which lessens the chances of mechanical failure while also eliminating any pressure to the medial/lateral aspects of the malleoli that can often be seen with two joint systems. The APU® Orthosis is also available for the inclusion in custom made thermoplastic AFO® and KAFO systems.
NOTE: The posterior ankle strap is shown inside theupright in the adjacent photos. When fitted properly, the strap is outside the posterior upright bar.
