The paediatric UFO™ from Orthomerica is a prefabricated night splint for the effective treatment of Plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.
The UFO™ comfortably supports the affected foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion, applying a Low Load Prolonged Stretch (LLPS) to the soft tissues of the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon. LLPS promotes gentle stretching, healing and re-modelling of these tissues, effectively reducing the stress and pain caused by inflammation and tissue shortening. Such support can help break the cycle of injury, pain and re-injury due to otherwise unlimited contraction and deformity of the soft tissues at night.
Adjustable bilateral dorsiflexion assist straps with a CoolFoam™ replaceable liner that wicks moisture away from the skin for enhanced hygiene.
Available in standard and made-to-measure size options in White, Butterfly and Tornado pattern, contact our Customer Service Department with the size required.
