Second Skin Lycra AFO for Footdrop
I was with orthopaedic consultant on Friday and he mentioned that many of his patients with cerebal palsy find these must better that foot-up or carbon fibre AFOs. I told him that I was thinking of travelling to England to get a SAFO (silicon) one made at dorset orthopaedics. He thought the Lycra one would be better and more comfortable. Both the SAFO and Lycra AFO will have to be custom made. I think you have to go to Endinburgh to get the Lycra one made. The Lycra one also has toe slots to stop the toes curling under due to spasticity.
If you google “second skin Lyra AFO” you can see them.
