The present invention relates to a device for restraining plantar flexion. In particular it relates to a device for restraining plantar flexion in a person having inflammation or other disorder of the plantar fascia. More particularly the present invention relates to a restraint device for restraining contraction of the plantar fascia, preferably keeping the plantar fascia in a neutral to slight dorsiflexion by passive static tension.
In this specification where a document, act or item of knowledge is referred to or discussed, this reference or discussion is not an admission that the document, act or item of knowledge or any combination thereof was at the priority date, publicly available, known to the public, part of the common general knowledge or known to be relevant to an attempt to solve a problem with which this specification is concerned.
The plantar fascia also known as the plantar aponeurosis is a thick fibrous material that covers the soft tissue on the sole of the foot, providing static support for the medial longitudinal arch of the foot. The plantar fascia originates at the heel specifically, at the medial tuberosity of the calcaneus , spreads out over the sole of the foot and terminates in the ligaments near the teratarsal heads in the forefoot. In use it helps to restrain motion with in the joints of the ankle and forefoot.
The plantar fascia can become inflamed as a result of stress caused by overuse or as a result of a condition such as heel spur. Heel spurs typically develop as an abnormal growth in the front and bottom of the heel bone due to calcium deposits that form when the plantar fascia pulls away from the heel.
Initially, sufferers commonly experience a dull intermittent pain in the heel which may develop into a sharp persistent pain. But it is not the spur that causes pain. The pain is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia known as plantar fasciitis. The classic sign of plantar fasciitis is heel pain with the first few steps in the morning. The pain is usually in the front and bottom of the heel, but it can be over any portion of the bottom of the foot where the fascia plantar is located.
The pain varies in intensity from person to person and it can last a few months, become permanent, or come and go. Striking of the heel on the ground can exacerbate the condition, but is not a cause of the inflammation. Causes of heel spur and subsequent inflammation of the plantar fascia include inadequate flexibility in the calf muscles, lack of arch support or sole cushioning in footwear, footwear that has inflexible soles, overweight, injury, sudden increase in physical activity, and spending too much time on the feet.
The key to proper treatment of plantar fasciitis is determination of what is causing the excessive stretching of the plantar fascia. However in many cases, finding a specific cause is difficult. Typically, plantar fasciitis is treated with the use of a mixture of approaches as appropriate to the sufferer.
These include losing weight, the use of orthotics, increasing cushioning in the sole of shoes, resting the foot, applying supporting tape and wearing of night splints. Application of ice often helps to reduce pain although many sufferers find it necessary to use analgesics such as ibuprofen cream that can be applied directly to painful areas.
In more severe cases injections of painkillers may be used. Stretching the calf muscles using exercises that do not re-injure the fascia is a cure for many people. Typically these exercises are performed 3 times a day and especially before getting out of bed in the morning. Surgery may be necessary in extreme cases of plantar fasciitis. Orthotic based treatment for plantar fasciitis include elevating the heel with the use of a heel cradle or heel cup. Heel cradles and heel cups provide extra comfort and cushion to the heel, and reduce the amount of shock and shear forces experienced from everyday activities.
When the cause of plantar fasciitis is over-pronation flat feet , an orthotic with rearfoot posting and longitudinal arch support is an effective device to reduce the over-pronation, and allow the condition to heal. Many different devices have been developed to treat plantar fasciitis, particularly plantar fasciitis caused by heel spur. One such device for treatment of plantar fascia is described in U. A reinforced inelastic adjustable strap is attached to the toe of the sock, with a hook and loop assembly attached for closure.
One of the disadvantages of this type of device, and many other orthotic devices, is that they hold the foot quite rigid so the wearer cannot walk. The device of U. Furthermore, solely treating heel spur by holding the plantar fascia in a neutral position and preventing movement or exercise is unlikely to cure heel spur. Accordingly there is a need for a device having wider applicability, which can be used when the wearer is mobile as well as when they are sleeping or resting.
The present invention provides a device for a subject having plantar fasciitis, the device comprising. Typically the elastic sock fits over the foot of the wearer in the manner of a gauntlet. It may extend over the ankle of the wearer. In addition it may extend further up the calf to the knee, thus enclosing part or all of the tibia and fibula.
The foot may be entirely enclosed or alternatively the sock may include one or more openings. For example the elastic sock may leave the heal exposed. Preferably the sock is of a size that fits snugly around the wearer's foot, ankle and calf.
Alternatively the sock may be adjustable around the foot, ankle or calf so that a snug fit can be achieved. For example, the elastic sock may include adjustable straps or tapes. Typically the elastic sock has an upper surface and a lower surface. In use the upper surface of the elastic sock lies adjacent the upper of the foot and the lower surface is adjacent the sole of the foot.
The upper and lower surfaces may be integral. For example the upper and lower surfaces may be sewn or adhered together to provide a gauntlet for the wearer's foot. Typically at least the upper surface or the lower surface of the elastic sock is constructed of flexible material that does not unduly restrict movement of the wearer's foot or ankle when exercising and walking. The flexible material may for example comprise a polymeric material such as flexible rubberized material, polypropylene or polyurethane.
The elastic sock may consist of layers of different material. The upper surface and lower surface of the elastic sock may be of the same, or different material. In a preferred embodiment the upper surface is comprised of polymeric material such as flexible rubberized material, polypropylene or polyurethane while the lower surface comprises a non-slip material to assist traction and avoid slipping as the wearer walks.
For example, the lower surface may comprise flexible material coated with synthetic rubber having a raised pattern to improve the non-slip characteristics of the coating. The elastic nature of the sock has the advantage of stimulating blood flow to the wearer's calf and foot, in contrast to many of the devices of the prior art that hold the foot and calf rigid or under compression so that blood flow is restricted and the natural recuperative functions of the body are inhibited.
Preferably the elastic sock has thermotherapeutic properties, that is, it keeps the enclosed tissue warm so that blood flow, and thus healing are stimulated. The principal function of the leg binding is to provide an anchor point on the wearer's leg for one end of the elastic strap.
The leg binding may be integral with the elastic sock or it may be separate from the elastic sock. The leg binding may be located adjacent any part of the wearer's leg such as the ankle, or intermediate the ankle and the knee. In one embodiment the leg binding is integral with the elastic sock, attached to the elastic strap by stitching or the like. In another embodiment the leg binding is not integral with the elastic sock but can be removably attached.
The elastic strap can be attached to the leg binding by Velcro or by a buckle. The leg binding may be of any convenient length and width. Preferably the leg binding can be adjusted to ensure a snug fit around the calf or ankle so that the device does not move or become displaced when the wearer moves. The leg binding is typically constructed of flexible material that does not unduly restrict movement of the wearer's foot or ankle.
The leg binding may comprise the same material as the elastic sock, or it may comprise different material. The elastic strap may comprise elastic material along its entire length that allows stretching in a longitudinal direction. Alternatively it may comprise elastic material along part of its length. Typically the ends of the elastic strap are reinforced with stronger material for attachment to the elastic sock and leg binding.
The elastic strap in combination with the rest of the device resists contraction of the plantar fascia when the wearer is at rest, preferably keeping the plantar fascia in a neutral to slight dorsiflexion by passive static tension, yet allow movement of the foot relative to the calf and ankle so that the wearer can walk when they want to or perform exercises that assist reduction of inflammation of the plantar fascia. For example, the wearer may wish to carry out exercises that stretch the calf muscle but do not re-injure the plantar fascia.
In use the elastic strap extends from the region of the elastic sock adjacent the wearer's toe to the leg binding. The elastic strap may be attached to the upper surface or the lower surface, or both surfaces of the elastic sock. Typically one end of the strap is integral with the lower surface of the elastic sock.
Preferably it is attached to the part of the lower surface which lies under the toes of the wearer or near the ball of the foot. The end of the strap it typically attached to the elastic sock by adhesive or stitching. The other end of the elastic strap may be integral with the leg binding, but more typically, it is removably attached to the leg binding by hook and loop material fastening such as Velcro.
In another embodiment, the other end of the elastic strap is removably attached to the leg binding by a buckle, or plastic loop. The end of the binding may include Velcro so that it can be passed through the plastic loop and fastened to itself using the Velcro. Preferable the end of the elastic strap adjacent the leg binding is adjustable so the overall length of the elastic strap can be modified in order to maintain static tension on the plantar fascia.
The invention will now be further described with reference to the following non-limiting drawings:. The foot is depicted in x-ray view to show the tibia 1 , the fibula 2 , the ankle comprising the ends of the tibia and fibula, plus the talus underneath 3 , the foot bones 4 and the plantar fascia 5. The ankle joint is responsible for up and down motion of the foot. In this view the foot is located within an elastic sock 10 that partially encloses the foot and ankle and encircles the lower part of the tibia and fibula, leaving the heel uncovered.
The leg binding 15 encircles the upper part of the tibia 1 and fibula 2. The leg binding 15 encircles the upper part of the calf, just below the knee. Intermediate the two ends of the strap is a plastic loop 21 which can be used to adjust the length of the elastic strap Specifically the elastic strap 20 comprises two parts 23 , 24 , each of which has a free end. The free ends are passed through the plastic loop 21 , and releasably secured back on themselves by Velcro. The wearer can thus adjust the length of the elastic strap 20 and control the amount of passive static tension imposed on the plantar fascia.
The device shown is similar to that shown in FIG. This type of fastening provides a convenient means for adjusting the length of the elastic strap The elastic strap has sufficient stretch to maintain static tension on the plantar fascia when the foot is at rest, as well as allowing movement of the foot relative to the calf.
In this embodiment the leg binding 15 encircles the part of the elastic sock 10 that is located adjacent the ankle of the wearer. In this embodiment the device is the same as that shown in FIG. The elastic sock 10 is an appropriate size for the wearer and in this embodiment the fit is non-adjustable. The sock is sufficiently elastic that it fits snugly to the form of the foot.
The leg binding 15 is a strip of elastic material that snugly encircles the wearer's ankle or lower calf region and the ends of the strip are attached together by Velcro.

Ясно, что тот не собирался сдаваться. Скорее всего идет по его следу пешком. Беккер с трудом вел мотоцикл по крутым изломам улочки. Урчащий мотор шумным эхо отражался от стен, и он понимал, что это с головой выдает его в предутренней тишине квартала Санта-Крус.
В данный момент у него только одно преимущество - скорость. Я должен поскорее выбраться отсюда. - сказал он. После множества поворотов и коротких рывков Беккер оказался на перекрестке трех улочек с табличкой Эскуина-де-лос-Рейес и понял, что уже был здесь минуту-другую. Притормозив, он задумался, в какую сторону повернуть, и в этот момент мотор его веспы кашлянул и заглох.
- Он обесточен. - Вы оба настолько заврались, что в это даже трудно поверить. - Хейл сильнее сжал горло Сьюзан. - Если лифт обесточен, я отключу ТРАНСТЕКСТ и восстановлю подачу тока в лифт. - У дверцы лифта есть код, - злорадно сказала Сьюзан. - Ну и проблема! - засмеялся Хейл.
- Думаю, коммандер мне его откроет.
Он бросил быстрый взгляд на Сьюзан, которая по-прежнему сидела на стуле, обхватив голову руками и целиком уйдя в. Фонтейн не мог понять, в чем дело, но, какими бы ни были причины ее состояния, выяснять это сейчас не было времени.
- Нужно решать, сэр! - требовал Джабба. - Немедленно. Фонтейн поднял голову и произнес с ледяным спокойствием: - Вот мое решение. Мы не отключаемся.
- Я думал, что вы в Южной Америке. Лиланд Фонтейн окинул своего помощника убийственным взглядом. - Я был. Но сейчас я .
Сьюзан отвечала на те вопросы, на которые могла ответить, и постепенно у Дэвида сложилось общее представление об Агентстве национальной безопасности - за исключением, разумеется, секретных сторон деятельности этого учреждения. Основанное президентом Трумэном в 12 часов 01 минуту 4 ноября 1952 года, АНБ на протяжении почти пятидесяти лет оставалось самым засекреченным разведывательным ведомством во всем мире.
Семистраничная доктрина сжато излагала программу его работы: защищать системы связи американского правительства и перехватывать сообщения зарубежных государств.
Игра закончена. Червь ползет с удвоенной скоростью. У нас осталось всего восемь минут. Мы ищем число, а не произвольный набор букв.
А если и знал, подумала Сьюзан, то зачем ему мешать ее поискам парня по имени Северная Дакота. Вопросы, не имеющие ответов, множились в голове.
