The Swede-O Deluxe Night Splint is designed to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. This product positions the foot at a consistent 90 degree angle. Placing the ankle in a neutral position overnight passively stretches the calf, Achilles tendon, and plantar fascia to help alleviate morning heel pain and discomfort. This gentle stretch helps reduce muscle contracture, inflammation, and associated pain. Use the removable foam wedge insert for an additional 5 degree stretch. The soft padded cover is comfortable against the skin and helps increase patient compliance. The splint's bilateral design fits the right or left foot.

The problem I have is that the brace does not keep your foot completely in a 90' angle position. Due to where the bottom and middle straps are located, I can still flex my foot to around 110-120 degrees. Overall, I think my foot is in a better position for the duration of the night, but I don't think I'm getting the maximum amount of stretch that you are supposed to. I am going to try and start using the foam wedge that comes with it to see if I can improve the angle.
Also, I alternate the brace on either foot each night, and even though it fits, I notice that my right ankle makes contact with the hard plastic shell causing ankle pain if I lay on my right side. It's also a BIG brace, so it does kind of get in the way of different sleeping positions.
The velcro and material was of very cheap quality and constantly got caught on the blankets and came undone. I most often found them on the floor in the morning. I have since replaced them with braces from Ovation Medical which are only a few dollars more and are far more effective. Please read your seller's return policy if you do decide to purchase, as i did not, and encountered a great deal of difficulty returning because they were not brand new. How on earth would I know until I wore them that they are ineffective.. Also,the material they are covered with inbedds every little piece of lint and look filthy after couple nights of wearing. I have cats that sleep in the bed and they were imbedded with cat hair in no time, and it was impossible to remove with a lint roller and a pair of tweezers. I don't have this problem with the Ovation Braces.
and it was still too big on my foot. the biggest gripe i have is that the velcro staps used to hold it to my foot started to remove the stiching on the straps themselves. After two nights i knew if i kept using it that the stiches would come apart and it would become useless, i returned it and got a full refund.
