The Braces

The PT and Neuro doc at CHOP agreed that braces called SureStep Braces would be the best for Abby. When she walks her legs have very poor tone and muscle control. It is part of the reason she falls so much. The idea is that the braces will provide the stability the lower part of her leg needs so her legs don't "roll in" so much. I now have to go through the process of finding an orthotist to fit her and order the braces. I am praying our insurance will cover at least some of it but I am not sure yet.

The SureStep website has a great video of what their orthotics do different than typical ones.
