Eli's New DAFO's

This is Eli and one of his PT's, Alison.
DAFO's are Dynamic Ankle-Foot Orthotics.
Anyway, the purpose of these is to help stablize him.
They put pressure/stimulation on the bottoms of his feet
and keep his ankle at a 90 degree angle. They are supposed
to help him relax a little when sitting, and give support when we
work on standing. I wanted orange straps...and they ended up
this rediculous yellow. The ribbon on the one strap
has horses on it. I wish I'd chosen a different color. Oh, well.
Next pair, I'll know!
