Metatarsal Bar PPT Cushions are semi-firm pads that protect and support the metatarsal bones in the ball of the foot, bringing relief to most causes of forefoot pain. Metatarsal Bar PPT Cushions, also known as met pads, transfer weight away from sore metatarsal bones and painful calluses. Place the adhesive-backed Metatarsal Bar PPT Cushion behind the ball of your foot to off-load weight bearing away from your forefoot.

I have Metatarsalgia. Will this product help me?
Yes! Metatarsalgia is a generic term used to describe non-specific forefoot pain in the region of the metatarsal bones. This pad will off-load the forefoot. By taking load off the ball of the foot, metatarsal pads help to redistribute load bearing.
I've looked at both the Metatarsal PPT Pads and the Metatarsal Bar PPT Cushions. What's the pros and cons of each?
Much of the selection is based on personal feel of the pads. The Metatarsal Bar PPT Cushions are a bit more firm and have a broader distal edge. The Metatarsal Pads PPT are a tad softer and have a lower profile.
