Recovery Video: Going Forward

A personal update: walking forward with only ankle sport-braces in this video.  I'm still working to drop long leg orthotics.  This has been the official bracing sequence: from bilateral locked KAFOs (Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthotics locked at the knee, as Franklin D. Roosevelt used) to unlocked KAFOs to modular KAFOs/ AFOs (Ankle-Foot Orthotics without locks and with very mild knee support).  In a past video, I showed walking backwards with the same combination of ankle support wraps.  Because walking in different directions requires different muscle groups, intervals of both have been an important part of recovery since the very beginning (see previous videos on my YouTube channel).  It's much harder than it looks!
