Dr. Kay's Night Splint Brace for Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinopathy Review
Plantar fascia and Achilles tendons that tighten up during the night are the cause, and the Dr. Kay's Night Splint Brace is the solution. By holding your foot in a flexed position, it keeps the tissues stretched and makes those first steps out of bed so much more comfortable.
Adjustable Straps Let You Set the Degree of Flex
Two side straps with Velcro closure control the angle of your foot (dorsiflexion). Start with a gentle angle, then gradually increase it over the following nights as your tendons get accustomed to being stretched. The straps that wrap around your leg and foot are also adjustable so you can fine-tune the fit, and their center-release buckles make getting the Dr. Kay's on and off a breeze.
Lightweight, Padded and Breathable for Pure Comfort
Designed to improve on heavy, bulky models that are hard to sleep in, the Dr. Kay's has a tough, yet thin and lightweight molded plastic shell on the outside and luxuriously thick foam padding on the inside. A breathable liner helps prevent heat and moisture build-up. Even the straps are padded to keep you perfectly comfortable.
Thanks to a rubberized bottom tread, you can rest assured of a secure footing if you need to get up during the night. (However, the Dr. Kay's is not recommended for daytime walking.) When you wake up in the morning, your relaxed tendons won't scream with pain, your tissues won't react with further damaging inflammation ... and you'll be well on your way to healing your painful foot condition.
