The therapists at Shepherd say he has very good upper body strength and decided to try him on these braces. He was able to hold himself up and "hobble" (as he called it) for about 10 feet. The braces will be used for exercise only. Has anyone ever used these? They told us they cost about $10,000 and that a lot of people end up putting them in a closet because they are so much trouble. Please give us some input!! Thanks.
    I have the ones that go to my waist and I was able to go about 500 feet I had to build up but I found if I light held my son arm it was eaiser than a walker
