Splint, re-straightening, corrector, corrective orthosis for hallux valgus ... here is the range of solutions available to correct and relieve a painful bunion. However, those that can be used on the foot during the day are rare. The correction orthosis for the hallux valgus EPITHELIUMFLEX 02 is placed on sports shoes: it limits the pain and the progression of the bunion at the beginning, while favoring its performance.
FUNCTIONALITY: The hallux valgus EPITACT orthosis acts on three complementary factors:
-A CORRECTIVE ACTION: The EPITHELIUMFLEX silicone tendon, associated with the support tab, allows you to straighten the big toe, limit pronation and, thus, optimize the impulse. During sports, the quality of support is paramount to prevent injuries and improve performance.
-A PROTECTIVE ACTION: The external EPITHELIUMFLEX tendon also allows the absorption of pressure and friction on the exostosis (“bunion”) and, thus, to avoid the risk of heating.
-A MAINTENANCE ACTION: The compression metatarsal brace helps to control the crushing and development of the forefoot.
Lack of mobility of the big toe.
Do not use on an unprotected wound.
