    I am a polio case, I wear my first KAFO since 13, after the hip bone surgery. Before that I was just using crutches.

    I can't remember how many KAFO I have wore. I think around 8 or 7. I only wear on my right leg.

    I only started to use wheelchair since 3 years ago, where I have shoulder tear, doctor advised me to rest my shoulder, not to walk too much on my crutches.

    After so many KAFO I have wore, only the very last 2 KAFO is really fit me and give me good support and the most comfortable one.

    I design the last two KAFO, base on some sample I read on website.

    You can see this in youtube:

    Your mail box is full, so I reply you here.

    I really hate leather and all the straps, it can't really support me well. If the strap is too tight, my leg feel painful, if it is not tight enough, support is not enough too.

    I hate the technician in my country too, they just want to make money, and never willing to listen to what I want. Not until I insist my design, they won't do anything really fit me. But I am still not satisfy with their workmanship.

    Hopefully getting something even better. Have you heard of the Stance Control KAFO? And also some other new design?

    The guitar in the background is a 1967 Jose Ramirez "Blue Label", Segovia model. One of my most prized possession, if there is such a thing! It is in poor repair, unfortunately, and needs a neck reset and fret work.

    I play mostly steel string acoustic and classical music. Folk, bluegrass, Bach, and some acoustic stuff (e.g. Crosby Stills and Nash, Neil Young, Jim Croce, Leo Kottke, Ben Harper, etc).

    The chair is a Lasher Sport BT-MG. Custom made, one of a kind type chair. It's the best chair on the planet, IMO! Saved for ever to get it, but its been worth every penny.
  45. Hey Matt,
    I see there's a bunch of us night owls still lurking around here on CC. Your welcome. I only speak the truth. I'm portly to & have a gut from failed abdominal reconstruction years ago after my umbilicus was removed because of post-op infection from umbilical hernia repair. Glad to hear that your new uniform is much better quality then the old standard.
    You have every right to be damn proud of your girls. If you don't have bragging rights no one does.
    You take care too ! & Happy New Year. I hope it's a great year for all of us.
    Oh, one thing. Are you bye chance going to the Veterans Wheelchair Games in Spokane this coming July? I don't know how far away Spokane Washington is from you. I hope to get to go this year for the first time. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I get to go. If you go that would be neat for us to get to meet.

    Thanks for your kind words. Yeah I had to purchase a new uniform some time ago - "portly" for my quad gut. Much better quality than the old standard.
