    Rgo leg braces

    Has anyone used Rgo leg braces for walking? I'm getting some soon and very excited about it. Just wonder if anyone can give me some advice before I start using these. I'm a c5-6 para, can get around good and live alone. Thanks, cheryl

    What's your Asia score?
    I'm a t11 complete and have been using them for over 3 months.
    i hip hitch with the use of a frame. i will soon be using crutches soon.
    My only problem was the hip locks which were difficult to unlock from standing to sitting.
    i will be fitting new locks which are user friendly.
    It takes quite a lot of practice to balance while my shoulders get tired. i first started out on parallel bars then progressed to a frame and now to crutches.
    It's a great workout and mental boost so have fun.

    Not sure how much I'll compare being a T4 para and all.
    Biggest tip is don't be in a hurry, there will probably be a lot of back and
    forth to the orthotist to get things adjusted. As you get used to them
    they'll be need to be adjusted etc. etc. Good luck
