TECHNIQUE} Footlogix B/S Brace Toenail Correction If you have clients who are sufering from abnormal toenail curve, it's time to eliminate pain by introducing your clients to the B/S Brace procedure. The B/S Brace can efectively relieve symptoms in as quickly as one day and correct the problem over several months. It can lift the nail by as much as 5 mm., straightening the curved nail back into its original shape, and eliminating excessive pressure within the nail groove. Thin strips are placed across the toenail using the B/S Brace Magnetic Applicator, and the result is a gentle lifting of the nail. Over time, the B/S Brace corrects the abnormal curvature of the nail and starts relieving the elevated pressure in the nail fold immediately after application.
