What Can You Use the Achilles Rupture Night Splint to Treat?

The Achilles Rupture Night Splint is specifically designed for individuals with a completely torn Achilles tendon. It is not suitable for Achilles Tendinitis, Achilles Tendinopathy, Plantar Fasciitis, or Broken Bones. The splint holds your foot in a plantarflexed position at 155 degrees, which is the optimal angle for healing. Unlike orthopedic boots with wedges or hinges, this splint ensures maximum healing angle.

Why Do You Need an Achilles Rupture Night Splint?

If you have torn your Achilles tendon, wearing a cast or orthopedic boot is necessary for three months to maintain the best position for healing. However, wearing the boot in bed can be uncomfortable. The Thetis Achilles Rupture Night Splint provides a lightweight and breathable alternative, allowing you to rest comfortably without the boot.

When Can You Use the Achilles Rupture Night Splint?

The splint is designed to be used instead of your orthopedic boot when you are resting. It is not suitable for walking without crutches. If you have undergone Achilles surgery, it is recommended to allow two weeks for wound healing before using the splint (consult your surgeon for specific advice). The splint provides relief when sitting or lying down, offering a break from the orthopedic boot. However, it is important not to walk or stand while wearing the splint.

Non-Slip Elastic Straps and Secure Booster Strap

The Achilles Rupture Night Splint features non-slip silicone on the elastic straps, ensuring maximum comfort and security. The booster strap wraps around the ankle, utilizing strong, zero-flex webbing to prevent dorsiflexion (bending up of the foot). This ensures optimal positioning to protect the healing tendon. Additionally, the innovative elastic strap around the heel provides security without contact against the injured Achilles.
