Bunion Treatment and Control
Recommended – an orthotic engineered to relieve pain and discomfort associated with bunions and help control their progression. May also prevent bunions from forming for those with a family history. Designed for sneakers and (full depth) lace shoes.
Shell Specifications – utilizes a 4.0-mm polymer shell (posted in a neutral position) that never loses shape or memory.
Posting – an extrinsic forefoot post made of (55-60) durameter crepe which is adjusted to shift weight and pressure away from the bunion, 1st met head.
Top Cover – provided with a cellular cushioning system and a felt top surface. The cellular cushioning system has a breathable surface that allows moisture and air to pass through, providing a cool, dry surface. The cushioning material is treated with biocide additive that retards the growth of bacteria and fungus, therefore reducing foot odor. The felt top surface is in-line bonded to the cellular sponge, and cannot delaminate.
Therapeutic Benefits – the orthotic shell provides semi-rigid arch support and control to reduce pronation. This motion (when the arch collapses too much and the foot rotates too far inward) is believed to be a major culprit of bunions. The forefoot post unloads pressure to the bunion area, helping relieve pain and discomfort. The cellular cushioning system top cover provides added shock absorption, comfort and protection.
