The Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint has been a reliable solution to the nasty pain which occurs at the plantar fascia when waking up in the morning. And as the name suggests, it is worn on the night to provide a gradual resistance to the tightening of the fascia. So it prevents this ligament from tightening up and thus the pain which occurs when stretching your leg. Read on to learn about the features of Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint.
Extra thick liner
This feature is complemented by soft padding & sufficient cushioning and is designed to prevent irritation. It allows the device to provide cumbersome-free sleeping which makes the user wake up in the morning feeling relaxed. The liner is breathable, so there is no buildup of heat on the covered part of the leg.
Extra long, padded strapping
This includes adjustable bilateral straps that firmly attaches the equipment on the affected leg. This feature is designed to ensure immobilization and provide a gentle and controlled stretch. The user experiences minimal muscle contraction and little inflammation pain with the help of this feature.
Universal right or left
This means that the Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint can be worn on any leg: it is designed to fit comfortably on the right or left leg. So the user doesn’t have to buy another device when his/her other leg develops the disorder.
This part supports the toes improving the balance of the entire leg. Without the wedge, the toes would hang out making the user less comfortable. The material making the wedge is a slip resistance one, so the user doesn’t experience unnecessary toe movement that can aggravate the inflammation.
Slip resistance sole
Like the straps, the slip resistance sole contributes greatly to the immobilization of the leg. The sole attaches firmly on foot to keep the entire device firm on the leg. It helps keep the patient’s ankle in a comfortable, neutral position overnight facilitating quick healing of the fascia.
Quick release buckles
These parts are equipped with the straps to provide the recommended fixing on the leg, and also to provide hassle-free removal of the device from the leg. The buckles are made of lightweight materials, so they don’t add any considerable weight to the device.
The Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint is made of lightweight materials, making the entire device pretty light. The user doesn’t feel any disturbing weight on his/her leg when wearing the medical equipment. The shell is sturdy, compact and a low profile one, making the device pretty effective in helping with the inflammation.
