To Yvonne-Night Splint Brand Name

Posted by Leon on 5/12/99 at 00:00 (006771)

Yvonne,
I checked the brand name of the night splints I used and they are called 'Oscar Plus' (also says something like ankle orthoses or something like that on them). My podiatrist ordered them through a medical supply place. I ended up wearing the one on the foot with the p.f. for about 3 and a half months, and the other one for 3 months. I wore them both at the same time, so you can tell they were pretty comfortable. They weren't the kind that you could adjust the angle so I could move my foot a little while I was in them. They did seem to accomplish what they were supposed to - i.e., my flexibility went from -1 to 15 and this is supposed to be related to the p.f. (and I'm now starting to run again so I guess it is!). Good luck! Leon
