- Relieves pain caused by bunions
- Suitable for the right or left foot
- Flexible bunion brace that
Relieves night-time joint pain and slows the malformation.
Hallux valgus (bunions) are a bony bump that forms at the base of your big toe and can occur when pressure on the joint causes the toe to tilt inwards. Bunions are not always painful but should never be ignored as they can have negative impacts on other joints such as the knees. Epitact hallux valgus night bunion corrector is for use during the night whilst sleeping and provides support to the bunion and limits the progression of the malformation.
Epitact hallux valgus night bunion corrector allows you to correct and limit the development of the hallux valgus whilst providing relief from joint pain, during the night. The patented design of the brace is soft and ultra-fine with thermo-forming technology that is easily adjustable* and can be left on while you sleep. The thermo-forming reinforcement corrects the axis of the big toe to limit the contraction of ligaments during the night. The recess opposite the bunion reduces pressures, frictions and relieves the pain of contact with sheets and mattresses.
* Thermo-forming: Once immersed in hot water it becomes flexible and able to take the shape of the foot and then hardens and becomes rigid within a few minutes.
