Hallux valgus is a deformity at the base of the big toe, or metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint, in which the great toe, or hallux, is deviated or points toward the lesser toes. First metacarpal bone is in varsus position and the hallux is in valgus position. The main reason of this condition is high-arched feet (pes cavus), where the bottom of the foot is overly-arched and hollowed, even when bearing weight. It’s mainly inherited and observed in women.
Bunion splint is intended for using as home and night supply. It corrects the hallux valgus and prevents against the metatarsus deformations. The splint is made of skin-friendly fabric called UniPren.
It is universal 3-layered fabric made of external elastic polyamide self-gripping layer and internal neoprene foam with elastic jersey. Our fabric is soft and elastic and not knitted, what prevents skin against the skin abrasions in the compression zones!
Bunion brace is equipped with anatomic-shaped aluminum splint that place the hallux in the proper alignment. Wide metacarpal strap provides proper fitting of the bunion splint even during long hours of using.
This brace is intended for active correction of mild and medium hallux valgus. It achieves natural foot position and reduces bunion’s pain. The splint should be used as an prophylaxis and po-operative treatment. Thanks to splint the rehabilitation period of time is short and less uphill. You can use it both at home and during your sleep.
UniPren fabric is self-gripping, that’s why this splint is only 1 size.
