Soft EPITHELIUMFLEX® 02 Bunion Brace help in straightening big toes and limiting pronation, which optimizes propulsion. The quality of supports is critical when preventing sports injuries and to improving performance. The splints also help relieve pain from bunions, whether they have just started or are already well defined.
Braces, rectifiers, correctors, corrective splints for bunions, and more, are a part of the range of solutions available for correcting and alleviating painful bunions. Ones that can be worn during the day are few and far between. EPITHELIUMFLEX® 02 corrective bunion splints fit into your sport shoes to reduce pain and retard the growth of a new bunion while enhancing your performance.
FEATURES : The EPITHELIUMFLEX® 02 Bunion Brace acts on 3 complementary factors:
- CORRECTIVE ACTION : Silicone External with counter-support brace aids in realigning the big toe, limiting pronation and optimising propulsion. During sports, the quality of support is essential to preventing injuries ans improving performance.
- PROTECTIVE ACTION : The silicone tendon absorbs the pressure and friction on the exostosis (bunion) and thus avoids the risk of overheating.
- SUPPORT ACTION : The metatarsal support bracelet limits the impact and bulging of the metatarsus.
ERGONOMICS : This concentrated technology in less than 10 g, EPITHELIUMFLEX® 02 Hallux Valgus Orthosis was specifically designed to act dynamically during your sporting activities (hiking, running, etc.). Its patented design incorporates EPITHELIUMFLEX® technology. The flexible, ultra-thin orthosis fits in all shoes.
