Details

The Darco Body Armor Night Splint is the only night splint on the market today that actively engages the windlass mechanism of the foot resulting in a specific and sustained stretch to the plantar fascia and a sustained low load stretch to the flexor tendons, Achilles tendon, and calf muscles. Traditional models that maintain your foot at a 90 degree angle allow your toes to relax thus creating added pressure and an uncomfortable feeling. 

Darco Body Armor Dorsal Night Splint Features:

  • Toe strap dorsiflexes the 1st MPJ (Great toe) to provide a specific and sustained stretch to the plantar fascia and a sustained low load stretch to the flexor tendons, Achilles tendon and calf muscles.
  • Loading the windlass mechanism naturally brings the foot/ankle to a near 90 degree angle thus eliminating the "lever effect" and the resulting pressure on the  ankle.
  • Elastic connector ring allows for natural flexion of the foot and toes during sleep, returning to the dorsiflexed position when muscles relax.
  • Low profile design allows for maximum user comfort and compliance.
  • Functions biomechanically (Windlass arch mechanism) to stretch the foot at the attachment sites where the fascia originates and ends.
  • One-size-fits-all design.
  • Fits right and left sides.
  • Cushioned for for more comfort while sleeping.

Windlass Arch Mechanism In Action

The plantar fascia attaches onto the bottom of your heel (calacaneus) and the ends of the metatarsals in your foot.  The Darco Body Armor Dorsal Night Splint uses a hammock design to pull up on the great toe which places a stretch on both attachment ends of the plantar fascia - not just one! &nbsp The result is a more effective stretch that helps treat plantar fasciitis pain.

Suggested HCPC: L4396.

Reviews
Worked perfectly at first
This is the first and only night splint I've ever used so I can't compare it to other products. The biggest reason I bought this one was because I was traveling out of town and it looked like an easy one to store on a trip . I can say that I noticed considerable relief after the very first week of using it. The main drawback for this reviewer is that pretty much all of the pressure from the stretch is placed on the wrap that goes around your great toe. At first this wasn't a big deal, but after a week it began to cause irritation to the skin on my big toe because due to the pressure. Otherwise it works REALLY well!

darco body armor dorsal night splint review
After receiving a shot per week for four weeks to the bottom of my foot, I began searching online for other devices, stretches, night splints, etc that might offer me some relief. The Darco Body Armor Night Splint is a one size fits all device. After 5 nights of wearing it consistently my pain improved by 60%. Finally, after about two weeks, I am finally pain free. For the first time I didn't wear it at all last night and did not have pain the following day while walking! If you fit it correctly,and don't put it on too tight, and remember to pull the big toe back far enough, it will provide a great stretch that's tolerable for the entire night. I HIGHLY recommend this splint. Put it on when you go to sleep. My only (small) regret is that I endured all of the different shots, along with the copayments, taking loads of time off from work, and going with expensive orthotics that only made my situation worse. I hope this review helps you.

clinical remarks to share
Because it is comfortable, our patients report that they do wear it for sustained periods at night. The isolated, increased stretch on the fascia via dorsiflexion of the 1st metatarsalphalangeal joint is very beneficial.

we use them & wouldn't be without it
Here's my take on it:
Easily adaptable for patients
Not bulky like others we've tried
Patients will actually use & tolerate it
One size fits all helps our inventory control
Effectively stretches the plantar tendon.
