The plastic pad of the podofix active adhesive brace is bent in order to adapt to the individual nail shape of the patient.
Before being tightened, the brace is glued to the nail. Approx. 1 minute later, once the adhesive has set, the brace is activated by twisting the integrated loop.
This slightly lifts the nail rims which relieves the surrounding tissue. Tension is adjusted continuously to suit the patient.
Once the excess wire has been trimmed, the gel depot of the podofix active adhesive brace is filled with PediGel and sealed within a couple of seconds. This therapy method is suitable for all age groups as well as for persons allergic against nickel and for diabetic patients.
