Bunion Regulator Nighttime (#P6035)
This doctor-developed splint guides the big toe towards its proper position while gently stretching tendons and muscles to help slow progression of the bunion deformity. Recommended by foot specialists to patients who want to avoid or postpone bunion surgery. Intended for use while sleeping or at rest, DO NOT walk while wearing this splint.
Note the markings: “Right” or “Left”. Separate the Velcro® band from itself and remove its free end. Leave the sewn end of the band on the splint which goes beneath the foot. Insert big toe between the cushion and the concave part of the splint; the cushion should cover the bunion joint (A). Lead Velcro band around outside of foot and through slot in splint on top of foot (B). Pull to adjust corrective tension. Fold band back onto itself and press together to secure (C). Adjust band tension so that the big toe is gently straightened. Initial wear should be limited to no longer than 30 minutes. After a few such uses, you should find all-night wear to be comfortable. Wearing a light sock reduces interference with sheets. Gradually increase band tension, over time, without causing discomfort. Only wear while resting or sleeping. Do not walk while wearing this product.
Because of its durable construction, the Bunion Regulator will be effective for months. To cleanse, hand wash in lukewarm, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly. Blot in towel to remove excess moisture. Air dry completely, away from heat, before reuse.
If you have diabetes or poor circulation, consult your physician before use. If numbness, discoloration, irritation or additional toe pain occurs, discontinue use immediately.
