My mother is 91, has Parkinson's. She has not been able to walk for about 5 years now and is wheelchair and bed bound. The nursing home puts braces on her legs that fit over her knees. From what I understand is to prevent legs from contracting.
They look very uncomfortable. Does anyone have any knowledge about using these braces on a loved one. The nursing home she is in has been using these on her for a while now. They leave them on approximately 4 hours a day from what I have been told.
