restiffic is a drug-free solution to RLS. It is a revolutionary foot wrap consisting of a compressive pad and a hook and loop system, designed to exert a gentle, relaxing pressure on the abductor hallucis and the flexor hallucis brevis muscles in the foot. This pressure reduces the symptoms of RLS and allows the patient to relax and enjoy uninterrupted sleep.
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a neurological disorder that causes unpleasant sensations and a need or urge to move the legs. The sensations are often described as burning, creeping, tugging, or feeling like insects are crawling inside the legs. The symptoms commonly develop when a person lies down and tries to relax, most often at night. RLS inhibits people from sleeping, which can lead to depression and a poor quality of life.
Until now, potent drugs including opioids, central nervous system depressants, and dopamine agonists have been used to ease symptoms, but each of these is accompanied by many negative side effects. Examples include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and the risk of addiction or augmentation of symptoms.
restiffic is a foot wrap for the treatment of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)/ Willis-Ekbom Disease. restiffic applies gentle, relaxing pressure to the abductor hallucis and flexor hallucis brevis muscles in the foot, which reduces the uncontrollable impulses to move the legs. This creates a comfortable, soothing effect for patients, allowing them to relax and enjoy uninterrupted sleep.
*A prescription is required to ensure an accurate primary RLS and that a patient can safely be compressed.
