    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...

    Interesting to find this group because I wore leg braces when I was a child back in the 1960's. They were heavy metal things with straps on them, that were fitted because my legs were not growing properly. I had to go to school in them and became the target for bullies. People...
