Off-loading general purpose forefoot pads - which one is best for my needs?

Forefoot pads - The second category of forefoot pads is general purpose off-loading pads. By off-loading, we're referring to a pad that is placed adjacent to the area that is being treated.

Forefoot pads - which one is best for my needs?

At our weekly meeting last week, Sue, aka Susanita, came up with a good idea for a discussion topic. Sue was interested in knowing more about which forefoot pad was best for each particular foot condition. Sue's question is actually a very good question in that we've never really had a good method to differentiate the use for each pad. We've never really tried to segment the forefoot pads in a meaningful way.

Hanging your met pads out on the clothes line to dry.

Felt is probably not the best choice of metatarsal pad for someone who wants to wear the pad directly on the foot and take a shower. Felt is water absorbent and would remain damp for a few hours after a shower. The visual image I had was of a row of felt metatarsal pads on the clothes line, each with a clothes pin. Nah, poor choice.
