Q:
Who can help with leg braces for spina bifida?

A:
Orthotists design and customize various types of assistive technology, including braces, crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs to aid in mobility.

As a general rule, the higher the level of the spina bifida defect, the more severe the paralysis, but paralysis does not always occur. Thus, those with low levels may need only short leg braces, whereas those with higher levels do best with a wheelchair, and some may be able to walk unaided.
