Featuring a comfortable and flexible fabric design, the ActiveRestore Flexible Bunion Splint is designed to straighten a bunion (also known as hallux valgus) and prevent the big toe from overlapping by applying outward pressure to the big toe in order to slow the progression of the bunion.
The ActiveRestore Flexible Bunion Splint is simple and easy to use – simply secure the velcro straps across your mid-foot and big toe, and then adjust the tightness to your desired level of comfort – the tighter the straps are secured, the more pressure is applied to maintain a straightened position of the big toe.
Although bunions are usually not a serious cause for concern, they can cause many problems including pain and discomfort, irritation, blisters and sometimes even infection. By straightening the bunion with our ActiveRestore Flexible Bunion Splint, these symptoms can be relieved as the protrusion of the bunion recedes.
Please Note: A bunion splint does not correct a bunion and can only alleviate some symptoms and slow down the progression of the bunion in low-to-mild cases.
How to Use the ActiveRestore Flexible Bunion Splint
Although it may look complicated, it’s actually very quick and easy to use our ActiveRestore Flexible Bunion Splint. Just follow these 3 simple steps:
- Open the bunion splint and lay it flat on the floor, then place your foot over the bunion splint so that your mid-foot is aligned with the mid-section of the splint and your big toe with the upper section.
- Wrap the fabric around your big toe first and pull the velcro strap to tighten it, and do the same with the mid-section. Adjust its tightness to straighten your big toe to the point where you feel slight pressure without pain.
- Once you’re used to that level of pressure, tighten it bit by bit every few weeks so that there’s a gradual straightening of the bunion.
You may feel slight discomfort when wearing a bunion splint at first, but this should lessen after your big toe gets used to its new position. You should aim to wear the splint for 2-4 hours daily/nightly.
If you feel any severe pain then you should loosen it slightly and wear it for a shorter period of time. However, if the pain still persists, then we advise you to stop using the bunion splint and see your local GP or a foot specialist.
