The Gel Bunion Shield cushions a painful big toe joint with a soft gel pad, relieving bunion pain and toe pain. The 1/8-inch thick toe pad slips over the great toe and fits easily in all shoes. A sock or hose holds the toe pad in place. Durable and reusable. Hand wash in mild detergent, and refresh with talc. Latex-free.
Indications - The Gel Bunion Shield is used in the treatment of bunions and hallux limitus.
Foot Care Tip! Bunion pain results from shoe pressure, poor alignment of the big toe or both. The Gel Bunion Shield protects the bunion from shoe pressure but does not re-align the big toe. Many patients who use the Gel Bunion Shield also use a Large/Firm Toe Separator to re-align the big toe. Or check out our Gel Bunion Spacer with Stay-Put Loop.
