Townsend announces the release of the Nox splint. The Nox (from the Greek word for night) splint is designed for nighttime relief and treatment of plantar fasciitis, fibromatosis, Achilles tendinitis, heel spurs, and foot drop. At one third the weight and bulk of typical night splints, Nox is comfortable to sleep in. The splint features ample padding, an open back design, an articulating hinge, and a fully adjustable tension strap. As tension is adjusted, a small window indicates the range of angulation. The patient has complete control over the amount of stretch applied to promote faster recovery.
