    I'm An Orthotist- I Love Them!

    I have a manifestation of BIID, I should be paraplegic, but I'm not. The KAFOs help me feel the way I should be. If the paraplegia became a fact in my life, they would serve a better purpose. They're also sexy and feel wonderful! I love the "machine augmented human" look, the...
