Helpful tips:

The orthosis regimen and duration of use is determined by your medical doctor. 
Before taking the orthosis on, it is recommended to fasten the soft part (socket) on the shank, having fixated it firmly on the foot with the help of Velcro fasteners. 
Then the hard part can be taken on the leg and it is fixed with straps, following the order “from the joint” (first – coterminous ones to the joint, then – the distant ones).
It is recommended to wear the orthosis all day long and take it off before bedtime.
