Children should wear their AFOs during the day, just as they would their shoes.
While walking barefoot after a bath or in the evening can do no harm, you may consider having the child wear them at night, even while sleeping, for stretching particularly tight muscles.
Caring for your brace
Your brace can and should be cleaned frequently. Use soap and water to clean it daily. Once a week, wipe your brace down with rubbing alcohol. Straps will wear over time and need replacement. Please contact Braceworks for an appointment or call 403-240-9100 in Calgary for express service.
