We have a stroke patient, in a rigid AFO, and we have added a “pediplast” toe separator/prop which acts to DF his toes, and significantly reduces his tone. I works great for him. Problem is that the pediplast has cracked in several places, we have super glued it together a few times, but this is getting costly. Any suggestions as to what we can substitute here? Thought about RTV, but it is too brittle for his very high tone. I would like to take an impression of the present device and duplicate it with some other type of silicone or gel. We also do not want to buy a $500 jug of Otto Bock stuff….the cheaper the better.
Will post any suggestions….
