Summary: The goal of an orthotic treatment after a stroke is the approach to a gait that is close to a pathological one. Dynamic ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) with an adjustable ankle joint can improve the foot lifting in swing phase and the knee position in stance phase for patients with neurological indications. In this study, five patients with hyperextended and three patients with hyperflexed knees were examined for gait analysis regarding their joint angles following the N.A.P.® Gait Classification. The results show that a dynamic AFO adjusted to the respective gait type improves the knee angle in mid stance significantly and supports an approach to a physiological gait.

Keywords: stroke, classification, gait type, orthotic treatment, joint angle
