    ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

    I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.

      Thanks Matthew πŸ‘πŸ‘

      Are the sides of the support rigid?

      Hope Dolly the πŸ‘ was mutton before you sat on her. 😘😘

        I knocked her out before sitting down. It's the same rigidity all round. πŸ‘πŸ§πŸ˜‰πŸ˜xx

              Hi, I'm Eddie.
              Started with wobbly left ankle in Nov 2020. Diagnosed 22 Oct 2021, confirmed by 2nd opinion 4 days later.
              Still walking and talking, and wondering what the future will bring.

                ^ Those are my new toys - the carbon fibre ankle braces I picked up from Orthotics on Tuesday.

                    Anyone of similar vintage to me (born in 1965) may remember the then-named Spastics Society (Now Scope) charity collection boxes that used to be outside shops that were a statue of a boy wearing leg braces.
                    I feel like that kid when I wear them (Run Forrest, Run!)
                    They don't quite give me the speed of a paralympic running blade, but it's a start.
                    Hope we all find the right kit to hold up our various wobbly bits.

                        Hi Ellie , I am getting no problems in my shins at all - although I have only had them for 3 days. Those top straps are very comfy.
                        They are to support my "dropped feet" and hold my foot up to stop me tripping over them They work great!
                        Only observation I have is that if I walk on a surface that slopes sideways - then the whole brace leans over and drags my knee outwards.
                        Easily cured by avoiding sloping surfaces.

                            LindaB My Neuro Consultant referred me to Orthotics.
                            A floppy ankle and dropping foot was my first symptom (ahh, those were the days).
