Bodymedics Dorsal Night Splint
The Bodymedics Dorsal Night Splint is designed to maintain the ankle in a functional posture under a low-load stretch while the patient sleeps, thus allowing the damaged internal structures of the ankle to heal in the perfect position. Featuring a lightweight design with minimum bulk, the Dorsal Night Splint is comfortable to wear for maximum patient compliance.
Who Can Benefit from the Dorsal Night Splint?

- Achilles tendonitis
