We finally saw our local PT gain after seeing Dr. Wong in May (we've had insurance nightmares the past few months) and are awaiting authorization for his braces. Hopefully will be getting them fitted in the next few weeks. Anywaus, when his PT looked at the script he said that they traditionally use regular molded AFO's for nighttime and that the ones prescribed are usually used for during the day. He said we of course could use them only at night, but that he wants them to be fitted so that we have the option of using them during the day as well and we should think about putting them on Carter on days when he's having more trouble tripping or we know he's going to be walking a lot. Does anyone use this model during the day? Also, are any of the other boys using any daytime bracing this young (Carter's 4.5)?
