Why Bunion Aid® Splint?
Bunion Aid®, also known as the Hallufix® Splint, is an award winning orthotic bunion splint that relieves bunion pain, is clinically proven to correct mild to moderate bunions while walking, and maintains surgical fixation during the post-surgical healing process.
Bunion pain relief
Patients have witnessed a reduction in pain of the metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP) often within minutes of wearing Bunion Aid.
Correction of mild to moderate Hallux valgus
A study proves that the Hallufix® Splint (Bunion Aid®) is an effective device in correcting mild to moderate and not too rigid Hallus valgus malpositioning, particularly in combination with a metatarsal pad. The X-rays showed the pre-existing metatarsophalangeal angle of 40° was reduced to 19° with the splint applied. The intermetatarsal angle (between metatarsals 1 and 2) of 16° was reduced to a normal value of 10° by means of the metatarsal strap and pad.
Doctors are recommending Bunion Aid as part of their post-surgical care regiment to maintain surgical fixation, return patients to an active lifestyle during the healing process, and avoid recurrence of the bunion. This flexible, but supportive splint stabilizes the alignment of the big toe and allows the surgical area to heal through the available range of motion. Ongoing use of Bunion Aid provides mid-foot support and keeps the big toe straight, preventing the reappearance of a bunion after surgery.
Correction of Hallux varus
In the unlikely event a bunionectomy results in over-correction, Hallux varus, the application of Bunion Aid soon after surgery places pressure against the big toe helping it to realign with the big toe joint while supporting the metatarsal arches.
Night-time care with unrestrictive movement
Wearing a restrictive device like a rigid night splint limits the movement of legs and feet which compromises the natural movement of the entire body and disturbs normal sleep patterns. To avoid this, wearing a flexible hinged splint, such as Bunion Aid, that allows natural flexing of the big toe joint at night allows unrestricted movement while sleeping.

Why Medial Mid-foot Arch Support Brace?
Designed with similar ingenuity as the Bunion Aid bunion splint, the Medial Mid-foot Arch Support Brace provides adjustable inward and upward support to the mid-foot longitudinal arch and helps redistribute pressure points in the forefoot relieving pain from bunions, metatarsalgia, collapsed arches, and stress fractures. Unlike elastic sleeve foot arch supports, this arch brace will not pleat, roll up or lose shape, thus maintaining lasting corrective arch support.
Severe Hallux valgus
The brace can be worn to relieve bunion pain while a patient with a severe bunion is waiting for surgery or for one who elects not to have bunion surgery. In the case of severe bunions, the compression of the side splint of the brace provides support of the metatarsal bones, taking pressure away from the painful bunion while wearing shoes.
In the case of stress fracture (over-use injury), the Medial Mid-foot Arch Support Brace helps support the mid-foot bones during the healing process thus reducing pain. The metatarsal pad provides lift to the transverse foot arch.
Fallen arches or over-pronation
This arch support relieves mid-foot pain caused by general stress or strain including splayfoot and fallen arches. The inward and upward support of this arch support brace provides unique support unlike insoles with mid-foot arch padding.
