The Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ Nail Shaving Tool is widely regarded as one of the best and most revolutionary ingrown toenail treatment tools ever created. The Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ has successfully aided thousands of customers around the world with the treatment of ingrown toenails.
The Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ offers unrivaled performance, and is praised for its ease of use, high quality, durability and overall effectiveness often leaving its new users asking the question, where has this little gem been all my life?
Whether the Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ is placed in the hands of experienced professionals such as Podiatrists or it is operated by a DIY home user for the first time, the feedback is always along the lines of how magnificent this product is and how it has dramatically helped improve the way that ingrown toenails are dealt with.
What Makes The Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ So Significant?
The unique tapered tip design of the Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ is extremely narrow with the shaving section height being Less than a millimeter in thickness. This allows the operator the opportunity to easily gain access on the side or underneath the nail edge where most things do not fit. The precision engineered shaving tooth located on the end of the Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ can get to work by manually removing unwanted nail growth with minimal effort. The ability to shave away at the nail with each pass empowers the operator to have full control over how much material they would like to remove.
What To Expect From The Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™
Tiquin’s is based in South Africa and has been in the ingrown toenail tool manufacturing game since 1987 creating products for both podiatry as well as retail users, and learning through all of our past experiences, the Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ was created using only the highest quality stainless steel which can handle any and every sterilization method that you can throw at it. This medical-grade stainless allows the Tiquin’s INGRO-PAL™ to be used daily and will be capable of serving for many treatments providing that the precision shaving teeth are cared for correctly.
Below is a testimonial from one of the podiatrists in Europe:
I am pleased to recommend this instrument, which is very useful for all routine treatments and is not confined to onychocryptosis cases.
This is because the tool can be used to gradually, and gently, shave back the lateral nail edge and, in the case of abruptly-curved and involuted nails, the lateral nail under-edge, thus creating the sulcal space to allow you the visibility to accurately access sulcal point-helomas and strip-helomas. This puts the podiatrist in a position to then accurately remove these helomas with a Number 15 or 15C scalpel blade. These helomas are present to varying degrees in nearly all patients that I see. As well as creating greater comfort for patients, the creation of sulcal space alone can be a preventive and pre-emptive treatment to de-escalate the sulcal pressures that may eventually lead to the development of sulcal helomas and onychocrpytosis. Without this tool, routine treatments have a greater level of difficulty in checking for, exposing and removing sulcal helomas. lndeed, it is possible that these helomas could otherwise go unnoticed and untreated. The unique and clever design feature of this tool is that its blade will always be positioned to touch the lateral nail edge or lateral nail under-edge, and always point away from the soft tissue of either the paronychium or nail bed, lowering the risk of causing cuts and patient discomfort during treatment. The tool can also be used initially, to gently feel along the under-edge of an abruptly-curved or “involuted-nail, for-areas that may be sharp, jagged or-uneven, and then be gently smoothed by the shaving action of the blade. I have to add, that in my experience, the tool may sometimes not be optimally effective in cases where there is copious exudate or blood and the nail has become macerated or soggy. ln these cases, the nail will tend to disintegrate and tear as there will not be the required level of dry friction to enable the shaving action to take place. ln addition, the tool can simply be used to:
- Tease out onychophosis and other kinds of debris that have become trapped under the nail
- Round off the distal nail corners
As for the quality of this tool, it will last and be effective for many, many treatments and autoclave sterilizations.
I predict that it will revolutionize your treatments, raising them to a higher level of care.
