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
Fits right and left sides
Cushioned 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! The result is a more effective stretch that helps treat plantar fasciitis pain.
Darco believes that the best way for you to select and purchase an Darco product is at one of its authorized online stores of which DME-Direct is one. Only in these stores can you be sure to find the latest Darco collection and ensure you are getting a genuine Darco product with the manufacturer's full warranty.
Darco therefore recommends that you do not purchase an Darco item through any website, unless it is an authorized Darco dealer.
We are a Darco Authorized Dealer and can assure you a safe and pleasant shopping experience here at our website as if you were at our wholesale distribution premises in Valencia, California.
Some non-authorized sites sell counterfeit, second-hand merchandise, and/or products containing old fabrics, glues, and resins that do not perform as intended, and are therefore, not eligible for care under the Darco warranty. Others do not offer the original Darco warranty, nor do they offer any after-sales service of any kind.
