My model let me take a few pictures today of us putting on her de-rotation straps. The straps help keep her legs and feet in correct alignment. A common problem amongst spina bifida little ones is that their legs like to rotate inwards causing a pigeon toed appearance when they are trying to walk. The de-rotation straps in the photos was given to us by Rachel's physical therapist and is made by SureSteps. She had told me that you could also use a very long ace wrap to achieve similar results. You would need to find the center of the ace wrap first and wrap the center of the ace wrap around your child's waist leaving two long tails to wrap as shown below.
