I remember one of you said you also use them....I am coming up to the 3 month mark to go take her straps in and chenge them. Do they take them back to the shop or do they fix them right there just curious.

We use cascade dafos so this may not be helpful for you but in our case if it's just the straps that need changing, they do it right there in the office and it takes maybe 5 minutes. If she's outgrown them then we have to do casting and send the molds off somewhere to make a new pair. The casting is done in the office and doesn't take long but waiting for the new pair usually takes a few weeks.

We use sure steps!! We just had the foam replaced in them (it was wearing down at her ankle) and they took them in to replace it. They were only gone for a week (and only that long cause our guy only comes to town once a week) Hope that helps! Why are you guys getting the straps changed (I've never heard of that, but I really don't like our othotics guy)

(I think Kaiden uses them too, but I could be wrong)

Tried to Pm you but you don't get them... can I ask which ones she wears? Carrie's just got the basic ones that go barely to her ankles and not all the way to her toes. They didn't require casts to have made, but our school is terrible about leaving out important info.

Yep the dont cover the bottom of her toes and kinda angle from her big toe to her pinky toe. No cast just a bunch of measurements. And usually u cant see them maybe a 1/2 inch above her tenny shoes.

Seriously?? We use the same ones. I wonder why they haven't recommended replacing them.

Did they tell you why they're supposed to be replaced every 3 months? (so I can ask our ortho guy)
