Larger sample-sized biomechanical evaluations remain to be completed on all new experimental and commercial SCKAFOs except the DKBS [28].
Except for the DKBS, all SCKAFOs discussed in this article require a slight knee-extension moment to eliminate the net knee-flexion moment at the joint before the locking or braking mechanism is released.
