I often lecture on the topic of clinical indications for ankle-foot orthotic (AFO) therapy. Through interactions with many colleagues around the country, I am amazed at the number of practitioners who favor the use of gauntlet-style AFO devices for bracing the lower extremity. My suspicion is that the handsome reimbursement for these devices may supersede better judgment about patient adherence and improved clinical outcomes
Are Gauntlets A Universal Solution For AFO Intervention?
