The Gel Bunion Shield is a soft, silicone pad that cushions and acts as a protector against shoe pressure on the feet, providing bunion pain and toe pain relief. The 1/8" thick Gel Bunion Shield slips over the great toe of the foot and fits easily in most shoes, including high heels and dress shoes. Also great for runners. A sock or hose holds the Gel Bunion Shield in place. The Gel Bunion Shield is a durable and reusable bunion guard made of long-lasting silicone Visco-GEL®. Hand-wash with mild detergent. Refresh with powder if gel becomes tacky. Latex-free. Universal right/left. Choose Small/Medium for a Tailor's Bunion, and Large/XLarge for a Hallux Bunion. 1/pkg.
Indications - The Gel Bunion Shield is used in the treatment of bunions.
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 other bunion relief products including the Large/Firm Toe Separator to re-align the big toe.
