The DARCO Body Armor Dorsal Night Splint stabilises the foot and lower leg position at an angle of 90° in order to avoid equinus deformity of the foot and to consequently prevent achilles tendon shortening.
The toe loop elevates the hallux (dorsal flexion) resulting in a sustained stretch to the plantar fascia. The combination of stretching to the fascia and keeping the position by means of the splint enables various indications to counteract.
The adjustable straps are quick and easy to use providing perfect fitting. The low profile design of the splint minimises the tension on the dorsum of the foot and on the anterior crest of the tibia by up to 70 %.
Indications include: plantar fasciitis; heel spurs and metatarsalgia; achilles tendonitis; talipes equinus and ankle contracture.
Universal size that fits both left and right foot.
