Medical supplier for premade AFO or drop foot braces
I guess my question would be how you are using them. My GM had some we bought for her to wear at night (she has had a stroke), but I do not think they would be safe for her to bear weight on without the risk of pressure sores. I can tell you now that even with custom orthotics, they have to be adjusted or they can cause areas of redness when weight-bearing. I would suggest talking to the doctor who recommended the orthotics. Let him know your insurance does not cover it and ask what alternatives there are.
