Body Armor Night Splint Splinting System

The dorsal Night Splint stabilizes the foot and lower leg position at an angle of 90° in order to avoid equines 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.

Windlass Mechanics - The Key to Plantar Fasciitis Relief:

In 1954, J.H. Hicks described the foot and its ligaments as an arch-like triangle, or truss, formed by the calcaneus, midtarsal joint and metatarsals. Dorsiflexion of the hallux winds the plantar fascia around the head of the metatarsal causing an effective stretch of the plantar fascia and shortens the distance between the calcaneus and metatarsals to elevate the medial longitudinal arch. As we now know, the active application of a controlled and dynamic stretch to the plantar fascia itself is the key to plantar fasciitis relief.
