AFOs vs. SMOs
In MrsK’s “Standing Up” post you said, “If you do decide to get afos/smos (I would tend toward smos). . . ” Can you give me more information on why you tend toward SMOs.
We are scheduled to get our first set of AFOs in a few weeks. When I mentioned SMOs to Dr. Doom he smiled, shook his head and said, “Oh no, she definitely needs AFOs,” in a condescending tone.
Why do you tend toward SMOs. What would be the deciding factor between the two? Dr. Gloom seemed to indicate that SMOs don’t provide any ankle support.
