The active adhesive brace
Podofix provides an innovative method for correcting all types of ingrown and involuted nails. This kind of nail correction is suitable for almost everyone, including infants and diabetic patients. Therapists and patients alike are convinced by its medical and cosmetic results.
Podofix provides a gentle alternative for the correction of nail malformations and helps deformed nails to regain their natural, healthy growth. With this simple application method, surgery can be avoided and discomfort can be eased and permanently relieved in a quick and pain-free manner.
Podofix is adapted to the individual nail shape and can be applied immediately, noticeably relieving discomfort for the patient in most cases. Attaching and activating the brace only takes a few minutes and is hardly noticeable. Even during the treatment, the patient will hardly have to reckon with any restrictions in everyday life, during sports or in the water.
Fields of application
The podofix active adhesive brace can be used for most cases of deformed, painful ingrown and involuted nails. The podofix is also recommended for children, high-risk patients and diabetics.
Equally, the brace is used for 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)
This method of therapy is suitable for all age groups as well as for persons allergic to nickel and for diabetic patients.
