There are 2 types of lycra suits:
Seconds Skin is an ozzy company. they do the measuring in the uk and then go back and make the suits/splints and then bring them back and fit them. The over all around time is about 3months.
This suit has plastic bones and different types of fabric to support the body.
Job skin is a company based in Leicestershire. If my memory is right from my training. They make Jobsuits so they can be worn as a breathable base layer. Chose a funky colour with matching stiching and it can be top worn with trousers/shorts.
This suit is made out of different types os lycra in different weaves and patches to support the body.
They dont tend to cover the ankle/feet so AFO's may be a good idea or possibly DAFOs( dynamic ankle foot orthotics) as they are lighter and thiner plastic.
I work a fair bit in this area so do feel free to PM me and ask any questions.
