Description

The Body Armor® Night Splint is worn at night to easily relieve the discomfort of plantar fasciitis during sleep. The soft hook and loop straps make it quick and easy to put on and ensure a comfortable fit of the night splint. The rubber ring fastener can be used to fix the toe loop or plate in different positions.

Windlass mechanism:
in 1954, J.H. Hicks (The mechanics of the foot. I. The joints. J Anat. 1953 Oct;87(4):345–357) described the foot as an arch or arch-like triangle consisting of the calcaneus, the Chopart joint and the metatarsus. The windlass mechanism is a natural mechanism of the foot that is active in the transition from the stance phase to the push-off phase. As the body’s centre of gravity moves forward, the ligaments of the arch of the foot are tightened, and the big toe is bent. This stiffens and tensions the foot into an effective lever with high propulsive energy. Here the following applies: The more the big toe base element is lowered, the higher the tension. And the higher the tension, the greater the leverage.
