I have worn a kafo for several years. A couple of years ago I began to experience instability at waist/hips. I was sitting on the top posterior thigh-band which was not designed for sitting on. The ischial ring has been proposed to maintain stability and to improve comfort. Judging by progress with previous afos and kafos, I will be offered a second kafo with ischial ring as a backup. I would be glad of advice on points I should bear in mind. For example if the ring is to have a strap across the front should I ask for the closure , probably velcro, to be lateral, not between my legs? Is/ it better to have a
complete ring of metal, covered with padding and leather? I rarely open the velcro closure at the top of the the thigh on my present kafo, preferring to put it on by putting my foot in at the top.
