The Body Armor® Night Splint provides the most effective stretch of the plantar fascia of any night splint on the market today.
How It Works:
The DARCO Body Armor® Night Splint is the only night splint on the market today that actively engages the windlass mechanism of the foot, resulting in a specific and sustained stretch to the plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, and calf muscles. As researchers have proven, the active application of a controlled and dynamic stretch to the plantar fascia itself is the key to plantar fasciitis relief.
By dorsiflexing the big toe, as well as the foot and ankle, a more effective stretch of the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon is produced. (Stretching the plantar fascia while we sleep, is recognized as one of the most successful treatments for plantar fasciitis and heel spurs).

Features and Benefits:
- The Body Armor® Night Splint provides the most effective stretch of the plantar fascia of any night splint on the market today. Period. And it does so with a sleek and light-weight profile that provides optimal comfort and livability for the wearer.
- Toe Strap dorsiflexes the 1st MPJ to provide a specific and sustained stretch to the Plantar Fascia and a sustained low load stretch to the flexor tendons, Achilles tendon and calf muscles.
- A key comfort feature of the Body Armor® Dorsal Night Splint is its multi-position elastic ring connector which allows the wearer to comfortably connect the hallux toe strap to the lower portion of the splint in a variety of positions. By dorsiflexing the big toe, as well as the foot and ankle, a more effective stretch of the plantar fascia is achieved.
- Loading the Windlass Mechanism naturally brings the foot/ankle to a near 90 degree angle thus eliminating the “lever effect” and the resulting pressure on the apex of the ankle.
- Elastic Connector Ring allows for natural flexion of the foot and toes during sleep, returning to the dorsiflexed position when muscles relax.
- Low Profile Design allows for maximum user comfort and compliance.
