Heel pain can be effectively combated with the proven Body Armor® Night Splint.
The BodyArmor® Night Splint is a splint for stabilising the foot and lower leg position at an angle of 90 degrees, in order to avoid equines deformity of the foot and to consequently prevent Achilles tendon shortening.
The toe loop elevates the hallux, and actively engages the windlass mechanism* of the foot resulting in a sustained stretch to the plantar fascia. In addition the toe loop exercises a slight tension on the Achilles tendon, the Tibialis posterior tendon, the deep flexor tendons of the foot and the muscle system of the lower leg.
The BodyArmor® Night Splint is currently the only orthosis on the market that actively engages the windlass mechanism* of the foot resulting in a specific and sustained stretch to the plantar fascia.
Adjustable straps are quick and easy to use. The elastic ring enables the user to fix the toe loop in various positions. The low profile design of the splint minimizes the tension on the dorsum of the foot and on the anterior crest of the tibia by up to 70%.
