    Here's the orthoses they used:


    They are based on the model described by Nancy Hylton:

    Hylton NM. The use of dynamic AFOs and their impact on balance and upper body function. Neurol Rep 1989; 13: 15/18.

    Hylton NM. Postural and functional impact of dynamic AFOs and FOs in a paediatric population. J Prosthet Orthot 1990; 2: 40/53.
