Title (EN) DEVICE FOR THE TREATMENT OF CALLUSES ON FEET, CALLED PEDICURE BOARD
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE TRAITEMENT DES CALLOSITES DES PIEDS, APPELE PLANCHE DE PEDICURE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Device for the treatment of skin calluses on feet. In older people and even younger ones who use unsuitable footwear, skin often hardens around the heels. These skin calluses often result in painful skin cracks. Regular grinding down of the skin calluses should therefore take place which is very taxing especially for elderly people with limited mobility. This problem has been solved by this invention which consists of a board (1) which on its under slide (2) has a friction inhibiting material (3) and on its upper side (4) is covered with an abrasive cloth (5). During use, the board (1) is placed on the floor and, from a comfortable sitting position, one foot at a time is moved backwards and forwards on the board (1).
(FR)Dispositif de traitement des callosités de la peau des pieds. Chez des personnes âgées, ou même chez des personnes plus jeunes qui portent des chaussures mal adaptées, la peau durcit souvent autour du talon, formant des callosités et souvent des crevasses. Ces callosités devraient donc être régulièrement réduites par abrasion, ce qui est très fatigant, notamment pour les personnes âgées à mobilité réduite. Afin de résoudre ce problème, une planche (1) comprend sur sa face inférieure (2) un matériau anti-abrasif (3), sa face supérieure (4) étant recouverte d'un tissu abrasif (5). Pour utiliser la plance (1), on la place par terre et, assis confortablement, on y déplace son pied d'avant en arrière et d'arrière en avant.
