    Not sure, I did not oil my KAFO for years.

    I've had my KAFO for over a year and it's only needed oiling once - just a drop or two was all it took. My orthotist told me only to oil the hinges if they started to seem stiff and their action wasn't smooth.

    The only time I oiled mine was when they started squeaking. My wife decided when it was time because I liked the noise.
