People who walk with an AFO how much return in that leg do you have?
I was curious for the people out there walking with an AFO how much return in that leg do you have?
Are you just unable to to keep your foot from dragging so you need the support?
Or are you paralzyed from your knee's down?
Im definatley converting my kafo into an AFO because as of now the KAFO is useless and i'm running out of time.
With my leg, I have strong quads, and I walk on tone but controlled tone where I can ride a bike and tell my left leg to kick in when it shouold kick in. Also I can do squats when I'm leaning against a door.
But I have no functional Hamstring movement in my leg, nor can I do quad sets. Meaning I can't kick my bad leg out, then let it come back, then kick it out again. Once I kick it out a few times it wears out. But when I walk it stays strong and stays straight. I also don't have any hip flexors. So when I walk I swing my left leg through.
I was just curious if there are others like me out there wearing an afo only.
