Hi Rick - Below is the information on my brace I promised to send you when we met during the sleep symposium in San Diego. Hope it helps. He is great and really worked with me. If you call Mitch- He is willing to come down and talk and learn about PPO.

"What is unique about my Helios KAFO, are it corrective tri-planer design for foot and ankle deformity. This helps stabilize the foot and ankle while also using corrective alignment forces at the knee. The Helios is a floor reaction energy loading KAFO, which also allows for adaptation to uneven ground. The Helios is constructed out of carbon fiber and Kevlar, which uses independently crossing energy loading uprights." To say it is light is an understatement. I feel less strain on my back and my family says I also walk straighter . Vain as I am, I can now wear commercially made shoes with some elevation added but not requiring the "made to order " type which cost a fortune. I am able to walk with my legs naturally bending with each stemp (although I am still practicing as bad habits are hard to break.
