Fields of application
The COMBIped brace is suitable for treating deformed and painful ingrown or involuted nails. It allows using a wire brace even if only one side of the nail rim is accessible.
Depending on its application, the brace works on either one or both sides of the nail.
The new COMBIped adhesive wire brace was developed based on the success of the original 3TO brace and the podofix active adhesive brace and combines the advantages of these proven brace types.
The COMBIped brace may only be applied by qualified and experienced medical staff.
The COMBIped brace combines the strength of wire braces with the advantages of adhesive braces.
One side of the brace consists of a spring wire which is hooked under the nail. The other side is fitted with a plastic pad which is easily glued to the nail. With the restoring torque of the wire, the COMBIped brace has a lasting effect on the nail and can actively correct the nail shape on one or both sides. The long-term effect quickly brings visible results and success.
With the restoring torque of the wire, the COMBIped brace exercises a constant, gentle bending force on the nail, which allows correcting even strongly deformed nails. The force applied to the nail can be adapted to the diagnosis by selecting a suitable wire strength and by slightly pre-bending the wire.
The brace is available in three different strengths:
SOFT; MEDIUM; HARD
The professional adapts the strength and length of the COMBIped braces to suit the patient.
The brace wire is then shaped into a hook which will subsequently be attached under the nail rim. After checking the tension, adhesive is applied to the nail surface. The hook is then attached to one side of the nail and the pad is positioned on the nail. Finally, the fixing pin of the COMBIped brace is cut off and smoothed with a file.
This therapy method is suitable for all age groups and also for diabetic patients and children.
