Walking in my new articulated AFO 

Today I got my new AFO (ankle foot orthotic)! My posture is better!  I’m walking without fatigue. I’m walking faster,I’m walking farther! And all of this on the first day. 

AFO is custom made and is an articulated afo brace which allows some ankle movement front to back but not sideways, giving me more stability. I still have to buy knee socks to wear under the afo to combat chafing. This video was shot the day I got the afo.I’ll be shooting another when I’m more used to walking with it

  1. This is wonderful news! I’m glad that you have gotten more mobility and stamina in getting around. Tentacles metaphorically crossed for a full recovery, sooner not later!
