Bunion Protector Epitact
Do you suffer from a bunion? Even if the deformity is only slight, wearing shoes very quickly becomes painful. The pinching from shoes leads to pain at the bony outgrowth and hard skin develops due to pressure and rubbing. At this point it is crucial to place a support between the shoe and the bunion that will redistribute the load and relieve pain. This is the purpose of the Epithelium 26® silicone gel that is built into the EPITACT® hallux valgus protector.
A 1mm thick disc of Epithelium 26® positioned over the bunion leads to reduced rubbing without introducing additional pressure due to the rubbing within the shoes.
The protector is easy to position and it stays in place perfectly.
The hallux valgus protector can be machine washed at 40°C in the mesh laundry bag provided.
Sold individually. Suitable for either the left or right foot.
Please note: This device is only for protection and it is not intended to correct hallux valgus. If your big toe is still moving inwards, the hallux valgus corrector orthotic could help to slow the progression of this deformity.
