podofix

The podofix® active adhesive brace is attached to the ingrown or involuted toenail before it is tightened. Subsequently, the integrated wire is activated and gently pulls the nail rims from the nail fold. This enables to effectively treat ingrown and severely involuted toenails in a particularly gentle manner. The podofix® brace aides healthy growth of the toenail. Treatment with the podofix® brace does not affect the patient's daily routine.

Fields of application

The podofix active adhesive brace can be used for most cases of deformed, painful ingrown and involuted nails.

Podofix braces are also recommended for the treatment of hypergranulation and corns at the nail fold. The podofix brace is equally suited to cosmetically correct deformed nails. The podofix brace can be used as preparation for the treatment with the 3TO brace or with a COMBIped adhesive-wire brace, if the nail fold is too tight to attach the hooks.
Podofix active adhesive braces also provide a simple and efficient way of supporting the nail in its corrected growth and preventing repeated ingrowing following treatment with wire braces.

 

Difference to conventional adhesive braces

Unlike conventional adhesive braces, the podofix active adhesive brace can be adapted to all nail shapes and can be glued to the nail in just a few seconds.

The brace is then activated and tightened with the integrated wire, guaranteeing perfect fit, secure hold and maximum effect.

Mode of operation

The podofix active adhesive brace consists of an elastic plastic pad which is glued to the nail and comprises an activating wire which tightens the brace once it has been attached to the nail. After being fitted, the wire is positioned in a recess of the plastic pad where it is sealed smoothly.

The podofix active adhesive brace is available in four different widths:

  • MINI (12 mm)
  • S (16 mm)
  • M (19 mm)
  • L (22 mm)
