Onyfix - Nail Brace Solutions

Ingrown toenails and Involuted (curved) toenails are one of the more common problems we see as Podiatrists. This condition can be very painful and sometimes lead to infection if not treated correctly.

The Onyfix nail correction system is available at Sole Podiatry, and all our Podiatrists are trained in its use and application. The nail brace can be used to successfully offer a pain free solution to treat ingrown or involuted (curved) nails without the need for surgical intervention.


After a thorough Podiatry treatment of your nails, the Podiatrist will adhere a small strip of putty-like resin to the base of your nail plate using specialized tools. Once the strip is at the right size and shape, it is then set firm (cured) using a UV light for a few minutes. The strip will harden so it doesn’t move.

As your nail grows in length, the strip doesn’t alter shape, thus maintaining the width of the nail as it grows and avoiding the nail from bending or curving into the side of the flesh. This should alleviate pain caused by the nail bending or pushing into the nail flesh on the side.

Your Podiatrist will advise how frequently you should have your nails reviewed and subsequent applications of Onyfix, depending on severity of your individual presentation.

Your consultation will go for 45 minutes. This time allows your Podiatrist to thoroughly examine and understand your needs as well as providing the necessary time to assess your condition properly. We will also develop a comprehensive treatment plan that will enable you to achieve your goal as soon as possible during this consultation.

There is no requirement to supply a referral from your doctor to see a Podiatrist.

With that said, if you have been referred, please bring a copy of the referral letter.

We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality podiatry care, and as a result, we are unable to offer bulk billing on the Chronic disease management plan (formally EPC). Our consultation fees apply to all visits, and a Medicare rebate can be issued to you on the spot with a valid EPC referral. There is a small out of pocket expense on all appointments.

The frequency and number of visitations will depend on the nature of the condition you are being treated for. The treatment and rehabilitation of conditions will vary widely however after an initial consultation your podiatrist will be able to provide a recovery framework for you.

We appreciate 24 hours notice for cancellations when possible. However we know the unexpected can often happen, so a courtesy phone call if you are going to miss an appointment is always appreciated.

An appointment which is cancelled or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice, may incur a fee of 50% of the consult rate.

If you miss an appointment, without giving notice, then the full rate of the appointment may be charged.
