Indications: Wearing the EPITACTÒ Corrector Orthotic for night-time use on a daily basis helps to correct the deformity and to slow the progression of a hallux valgus. It helps to relieve joint pain and eliminates painful contact with the foot.
Specifics: Due to its patented design, the Corrector Orthotic can easily be thermoformed to fit your foot in a matter of minutes. It can be thermoformed several times, so you can gradually realign your toe. This means that you have a very comfortable, adjustable orthotic with a perfect fit. Light and ultra-slim, you can forget all about it while you sleep.
Lifespan: When looked after properly, you can wear it on a daily basis for several months.The thermoformed reinforcement piece corrects the axis of the big toe in order to reduce retraction of the ligaments during the night, relieving joint pain.- The hollow support opposite the “bunion” eliminates pressure and rubbing, relieving painful contact with the foot (sheets, mattress etc.).Note: In addition to the Corrector Orthotic for night-time use, we advise that you wear an EPITACT® corrector orthotic for daytime use which also helps to correct the deformity and relieve joint pain.
Conditions for use: This orthotic must not be used if your big toe is no longer moving freely. Do not apply to damaged skin.
