Podiatry nippers are used for the exact shortening of the (toe) nails in a medically correct way to avoid damage to the foot. This type of nipper is used to treat incorrectly grown toenails and thus to alleviate the resulting injuries or cornification of the foot.
Podiatry nippers for ingrown nails are used mostly by experienced Podiatrists for nail corners in hard-to-reach places because of their slim and precise cutting edge. The cutting edges are divided into single, pointed or double-pointed (pointed and relief ground).
The medical purpose or role of podiatry nippers for ingrown nails is to round the toenails in a medically correct way to avoid damage to the foot. Cutting the lateral, distal loose edges of the nail. Lifting and removing separated nail parts from the nail fold. Removing cornification (callosities) in the nail fold as well as calluses on the foot.
