Cool Stretch is a night splint designed to cure plantar fasciitis (heal spur), prescribed by a physician. Different from everything else in the market, we changed the color palette from black to one that fit more in the context of a bedroom and sleep wear, also making it more approachable and comforting. Also, instead of straps that keep the splint at 90 degrees (and catch your spouse’s feet during the night) we developed a light weight external structure making wearing the splint more comfortable in and out of bed. This is especially beneficial since most night splints are not used past the first week of a 3+ month treatment period because of comfort issues.
