My orthotist will soon be casting my legs for AFOs, and is planning to make rigid, hinged plastic ones. He says they will help a lot with my walking, but is less sure about driving.
My hands are too weak to use standard manual controls. Up till now i have been wearing a Sporlastic and an Ossur ankle support with NHS ankle boots.
I live alone and totally depend on driving to get around.
What is your experience of driving while wearing AFOs - and what type of AFOs do you wear ?
Is it legal to drive (an automatic) in the UK with AFOs ?
Will I need another medical driving assessment ?
