Available in variety of sizes of round and rectangular spur ends. These are also available with ankle hinges, e.g. dorsi-assist, free range of motion hinges, etc. Come with calf band made in EN9 covered with 3mm plastazote lining and leather/PVC top cover in a variety of colours and fastenings. Also available shaped BK irons to customised drawings for patients who require contoured side irons for extra stability. BK irons can be ordered as single, double or Rizolli irons for different purposes. All BK irons require a socket system in the base of the foot wear to anchor the BK iron and form a system. Orthopaedic shoes can be ordered from us separately or appropriate foot wear can be supplied by the patient where we can adapt and fit the BK irons. We will try our best to colour coordinate the calf band leather to the foot wear. Our team of orthotic technicians have many years of experience in the industry and can accommodate any style or request. BK irons have under many circumstances been replaced by off the shelf and bespoke AFO’s.  However, BK irons are becoming more popular once more as shoe designs and styles are improving. Please contact us to learn how we my best serve your patient and you will be pleasantly surprised by our service which includes a quick turnaround and excellent value orthoses. Also available: custom made insoles and a range of custom orthoses all made from our Hull workshop including BK irons, KAFO’s, DAFOS’s and scrum helmets.
