The ErgoPad redux hallux orthopedic orthosis is designed to provide effective conservative treatment of hallux limitus and hallux rigidus – the restriction of movement or stiffening of the metatarsophalangeal joint. The foot orthosis provides rapid relief for the painful area. The relieving effect is a result of the integrated "redux" reinforcement element, which is positioned directly underneath the metatarsophalangeal joint. It ensures a flat position of the forefoot and runs along the outer part of the ball of the foot. The "redux" reinforcement element provides relief in the painful area, prevents supination of the forefoot and prevents the heel from being levered out of the shoe thanks to that fact that it is tough yet elastic enough to avoid becoming stiff. The foot orthosis is supplied with the reinforcement element positioned for either the left or the right foot, combined with a complementary orthosis that is reduced to accommodate the reinforcing element – and of course, it can be supplied with reinforcement on both sides if required. Available in sizes ranging from 35 to 48 and in two widths.
