The challenge

A muscle wasting disease meant this man could not stand without hinged steel braces but these did not fit his wasted legs sufficiently well to prevent backward bowing of his legs.

Heat moulded casts were provided by the occupational therapist. Brass sheet was moulded and secured to these to strengthen and extend them.

He can now sit and stand and is pain free.
