Dynamic Swing Assist KAFO

Icarus Hercules Knee Brace
Icarus Hercules Knee Brace

Rolando was a cook for 17 years in New Orleans and had a passion for his work. At 40, he suffered a series of strokes that ended his career and made it difficult to raise his 3 kids. For 15 years, he has been getting by with a walker. This year, the Hercules KAFO has allowed him to walk again for the first time. His restored mobility has allowed him to reclaim a better quality of life for him and his family.

The anterior Hercules model is the easiest to put on and take off, making it our go-to design for most patients. All the wearer needs to do is step into their shoe and attach the straps.

Weight: 30 ounces

I just fit my first ICARUS KAFO. I must say I was very impressed with the design, sleekness, and fit of the KAFO. My patient weighed just a little over 400lbs. The brace went on effortlessly and was easy to don and doff. My patient was overcome with emotion as it was the first time in a long time he was able to bear weight on that leg and walk with confidence. Thanks to you and your team for a job well done.
