|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. Call 403-240-9100 in Calgary for express service.|
