How to apply HealWell Cub Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint?
While sitting, bend the knee forward so it is completely over the foot with the foot flat on the floor.
Flex foot with toes pointing upward and place in the slipper boot. Ensure the heel is in full contact with the back of the slipper boot. The splint should be parallel to the leg and always on the lateral (outer) side.
Fasten the closure on top of the foot. Secure the top calf wrap, ensure snug but not too tight.
Loop ankle strap through buckle for a secure fit and to maintain proper foot position. The strap location holds the heel in the proper position to ensure effective dorsiflexion.
How to Set the amount of Dorsilflexion?
HealWell Cub is pre-set at the 5° setting. To change the amount of dorsiflexion, unfasten snaps to expose the hinge. conditions for the amount of dorsiflexion are as follows:
For Plantar Fasciitis : 0°, 5°, and 10° on the advice of the physician.
For Achilles Tendonitis or Calf Muscle Cramps : 0°, 5°, or as prescribed by a physician.
For Achilles Repair (Post-Op): Only on the advice of physician 0-10°.
For Foot Drop or Post Surgical Treatment of the Foot : 0° Neutral, or as prescribed by a physician.
Only a very slight pivot is necessary to change the degree setting, screw into place - do not over-tighten, faster snaps in place.
Caution: For self-setting ONLY use either neutral (0°) or 5° dorsiflexion; 10° should only be set on physician advice. Remove the splint before walking, the cub is not designed for walking and should only be used while resting or sleeping as the cub is not designed to immobilize or rigidly hold a foot.
