To prevent progression of hallux valgus while relieving joint pain, this flexible corrective orthotic by EPITACT® acts during walking on all of the factors that can aggravate the deformity. It has been specially designed to fit into all types of shoes.
Epitact® has created a hallux valgus protector that contains a disc of Epithelium 26® gel, which limits pressure and rubbing of the bunion. This means that it relieves pain and prevents the formation of calluses.
The double protection pads have been developed specifically for people with bunions but also with pain under the foot, at the level of the metatarsal heads. This pain can be associated with corns, calluses, redness or even burns.
