Hallufix was developed healthcare professionals for pain relief and correction of big toe malpositioning - bunion pain (Hallux valgus). The dynamic day and night comfort splint corrects toe malpositioning demonstrably, protects and relieves the painful bunion and supports the entire foot while walking.
The splint is easily put on and can be worn left or right. The particular advantage of Hallufix: Unlike traditional rigid Hallux valgus night splints, this patented splint system can be worn during the day under load (while walking). By means of an integrated joint next to the bunion, the natural flexibility of the base joint of the big toe is retained while wearing the splint. And due to the flat design the splint fits smoothly into almost any walking shoe.
Hallufix offers protection and correction of feet affected by Hallux valgus at anytime and anywhere.
Easy to use
The Hallufix splint is easy to apply and can be worn left or right. Particular advantage: contrary to conventional, rigid night splints, the Hallufix splint can be worn during the day allowing for weight-bearing (while walking).How does Hallufix work?
Hallufix returns the foot to its natural shape, protects and relieves the painful bunion. By means of the splint worn on the big toe, the shrunken soft parts (capsule) of the base joint of the big toe are expanded and the progressive malpositioning of the joint is corrected. Via the system of splint, metatarsal and toe bandage, the foot is stabilised and incorrect loading corrected. With the aid of Hallufix, a foot deformed by Hallux valgus can perform the natural flexing action free of pain. Furthermore, the transversal arch support puts the transversal arch upright again.
The splayfoot (a very frequent concomitant of the toe malpositioning Hallux valgus) is effectively supported by it while wearing the splint. Advantage: Hallufix combines the corrective function of a Hallux valgus night splint and the supporting function of an arch support for the metatarsal arch in a single product.
How can I use Hallufix?
Hallufix can be used prophylactically for mild to medium Hallux valgus as well as after a Hallux valgus operation.Prophylactical use of Hallufix:
Initially considered merely a blemish, bunions can cause an increasing amount of pain in the course of time. In the case of a mild to medium-severe development of bunion (Hallux valgus), regular wear of Hallufix eases the pain and counteracts further aggravation of big toe malpositioning.
Studies confirm that the Hallufix orthosis is an effective device in correcting incorrect loading of the foot in the case of mild to medium-severe and not yet rigid Hallux valgus malpositioning.Hallufix application following a Hallux valgus operation:
Following a Hallux valgus operation a conservative aftertreament with an orthosis is generally recommended in order to stabilise the surgical adjustment of the toe. The Hallufix splint optimally aids securing the result of the operation and protects the foot even under load while walking. An early mobilisation is possible. Frequently, wearing bulky special shoes can be avoided. The postoperative rehab phase is shortened.
