AND HOW AFO INTERFACE SOCKS CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED AN AFO OR KAFO INTERFACE
Irritation From Leg Braces
Both adults and children can experience mobility impairment cause by a variety of conditions. Physicians treating many of these conditions will use an orthotic brace, such as an AFO, KAFO, or SMO brace. These braces help patients to regain or enhance their strength, balance, and independence. While an orthotic brace can be life-changing for many patients, they can have a few downsides as well, namely in the rubbing, irritation and discomfort that patients may experience when wearing them. Other causes of irritation include raised sock seams that rub between the brace and the skin, as well as socks that slide or bunch under the brace.
