straps for AFO/HAFO


Hi Colleagues

I work primarily with the pediatric population and lately have been bothered
by the effectiveness of the direction of straps –

My question is –

When you have a CP child that toes in ( because of femoral or tibial
torsion) often accompanied by fofefoot adduction – How would you place the
straps of your device- Ankle from medial to lateral or lateral to medial

Toe strap from medial to lateral or vice versa. Would you add a thirs strap
above the malleoli? From where to where?

Does it really have any affect on the toe in gait?

I am looking forward to your experience and insights
