Lower Body Splints and Supports: Devices that Provide Optimal Support for Injured Muscles

Lower body splints and supports are medical devices that support and protect injured or strained leg muscles. The main purpose of using them is to hold the leg in place which not only relieves pain and discomfort but also prevents damage to vessels or nerves surrounding the injured muscle. Splints and supports are usually made from plastic, metal and carbon fibre

Types of Lower Body Splints and Supports

1. Digital Gel Pads

Digital gel pads are comfortable fabric sleeves that contain mineral oil gel pads. Once placed over corns, calluses or hammertoes. They soften and moisturize the skin, thereby protecting toes and fingers from discomfort due to friction or abrasions. Silipos pads are one of the most popular gel pads since they are anti-microbial, dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, available in different sizes and easy to wear. 

2. Knee Supports

A knee support is a device that can be fitted around the knee joint for stabilization and support after knee injuries. They work by compressing the area surrounding the injured knee, thereby promoting blood flow and reducing pain. Knee supports also prevent the build-up of fluid in the knee thus reducing swelling. Procare knee supports are known for their durability, comfort, retention and comprehensive protection against bumps and knocks. 

3. Toe Spacer

Toe spacers, also known as toe spreaders, are devices worn to relieve foot pain, stretch muscles and realign toes. They are made of medical-grade silicone and consist of four prongs that fit between the toes, separating them from one another, thereby ensuring proper alignment, which relieves pain and promotes blood circulation. Over time, toe spacers also strengthen the foot muscles, thus improving overall balance and the integrity of the foot arch.
