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 described the foot and its ligaments as an arch-like triangle, or truss, formed by the calcaneus, midtarsal joint, and metatarsals. Dorsiflexion of the hallux winds the plantar fascia around the head of the metatarsal causing an effective stretch of the plantar fascia and a sustained low load stretch to the flexor tendons, Achilles tendon, and calf muscles.
