24 /7 Plantar Fasciitis Brace Product Review
The 24 /7 Plantar Fasciitis Brace, manufactured by the Invacare Supply Group, provides a unique form of support for those who experience heel and foot pain due to plantar fasciitis.
24 /7 Plantar Fasciitis Brace Product Features
This orthopedic support device includes the following features:
- The plantar fasciitis brace is a two in one system, with one brace for night time to be worn while the patient sleeps, and a second for day time use when the patient is up and about.
- The day time arch brace fastens around the arch of the foot, with the main support piece beneath the arch and a pair of comfortable fabric Velcro straps wrapping around the top of the foot. The support piece beneath the arch acts to lift up the bottom surface (plantar fascia) of the foot, simultaneously relieving inflammation and pain while the patient walks around, stands, or goes about the usual business of the day.
- The night time brace consists of two connected pieces. A comfortable fabric strap wraps around the shin just below the knee, while the second fabric support piece wraps around the arch of the foot. A fabric connector between the two pieces keeps the foot from extending past the neutral ninety degree position that is most conducive to healing and rest during the night. This ideal position also provides a gentle stretching through the plantar fascia, so the patient awakes with the foot feeling better rather than worse after a night’s sleep.
What Buyers Like About the 24 /7 Plantar Fasciitis Brace
Buyers enjoy these features of the orthopedic support:
- People who have been living in pain, particularly when they are on their feet or moving around during the day, enjoy the relief conferred by the supportive brace, both during the day and during the night.
- Because both supports are made of soft and comfortable fabric, they are comfortable enough for the patient to continue wearing them around the clock. Given the relief they provide, patients are actually reluctant to take them off, seldom doing so except for when they shower or swim.
- The day time arch support can be worn under any type of stocking or hosiery, and with any type of shoe. In sandals the straps will be visible, but even these are fairly unobtrusive, and in shoes the support doesn’t show.
What Buyers Don’t Like About the 24 /7 Plantar Fasciitis Brace
It can take a brief time to become accustomed to sleeping with the night brace, particularly if one gets up in the night and takes a first step out of bed before remembering the presence of the brace. However, the brace itself is not uncomfortable due to its soft fabric construction, so getting used to it is the only issue faced by a new user.
