casting with spasticity

Bob Genaze C.P.O.

I need some advice.
I have a 25 yr. old male, that is a para. due to a recent fall. The doctor
would like him in KAFO’s. The problem is his spasticity. Every time you touch
him it sets off flex. and ext. patterns. I don’t see how I could possibly get
a good cast!
He is on Backlifin to control the spasticity, but so far it’s not working.
Another concern is whether his skin will hold up if I do get him into
KAFO’s.
Has anyone been in this situation? I’m sure I’m not the first. I have
placed a call to his doctor to voice my concerns. No response back yet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
