Tibial bone health asymmetries persist in stroke survivors despite use of AFOs

By Jordana Bieze Foster Tibial bone mineral density in stroke survivors who use ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) remains significantly higher in the unaffected limb than the affected limb after more than a decade, according to research from the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City. Investigators analyzed nine stroke survivors (mean, 13.5 years poststroke), all of whom were ambulatory and had been using AFOs for a mean of 6.5 years.
