Julian being cast.

The following are pictures of Julian being cast for his braces.  He is cast every time that he gets a new pair and adjustments are made in between should he start getting red spots for blisters. In the beginning he hated to get measured and cast for braces and I would have to hold him on my towel covered lap to keep him from squirming. Now he just goes in and helps out by making sure that his legs are stretched out and pants are out of the way.

A silky stocking is put on over his leg first.

Mr. Barber was laying a rubber hose on top of Julian’s leg as he was being cast.

Here Mr. Barber is holding Julian’s foot in position so that they will have good casts to make the braces with.

Here the cast is being cut away. This is why the rubber hose is cast with is leg. It acts as a buffer between the knife and his leg.
