The Original UFO is an improved prefabricated night splint for the effective treatment of Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinitis. The UFO comfortably supports the affected foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion, applying 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. Featuring adjustable bilateral dorsiflexion assist straps and a CoolFoamTM replaceable liner wicks the moisture away from the skin for enhanced hygiene. Universal; will fit left or right. Paediatric sizes also available and clinical papers are also available upon request.
