Introducing an improved prefabricated night splint for the effective treatment of Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinitis. The Paediatric 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. The simple variable dorsiflexion design allows the patient to quickly and easily adjust the amount of applied stretch to provide the most effective pain relief. Adjustable bilateral dorsiflexion assist straps with a CoolFoam™ replaceable liner that wicks moisture away from the skin for enhanced hygiene. Universal will fit left or right. Clinical papers are available upon request.

Available in standard sizes White, Butterfly and Tornado pattern. Made-to-measure size option (MTM) available in White or Pattern, see Custom Fab transfer pattern swatch for available patterns and contact customer services with size required.
