Big Toe Aligner ( Hallux Valgus )treats the underlying foot function because it combines the comfort and convenience of a soft splint with the corrective support of a rigid splint. It's mid-foot strap stabilizes the longitudinal arch and transverse arch while the toe strap pulls the big toe away from the second toe gradually. The included metatarsal pad helps align the transverse arch when placed behind the ball of the foot. The splint has a hinged mechanism that enables the big toe to flex while walking and adapts to the contour of the foot, especially around the inflamed area of the joint. This is especially important as swelling in this region is common.
The primary advantage of this bunion splint over the other rigid splints is the hinged mechanism. It allows natural flexing action of the big toe, gradually straightening the bunion through the range of motion. The ability to walk in the splint is an advantage at bed time as well, because one can get up without taking it off.
