Product description

The epithelium flex silicone tendon relaxes the big toe and relieves pain.

If you have a bunion then you'll know that wearing shoes can be painful, even if your bunion is relatively small. Shoes can pinch and rub causing hard skin to develop on your bunions due to the pressure and continued rubbing. Epitact hallux valgus (bunion) protector contains a disc of Epithelium 26 gel, which limits pressure and rubbing of the bunion. The support the bunion protector gives allows the load and friction from your shoes to be redistributed so that pain is relieved, and the formation of calluses is prevented.

The Epitact hallux valgus bunion protector is easy to position on your foot and stays in place while you walk. It's available in three sizes to suit your feet and can be machine washable for continued use.
