StudyFootTM Silicone Bunion Shield with Toe Separators are ergonomically designed to fit the anatomy of the wearer’s foot. The shield reduces pain at the bone protuberance on the medial aspect of the big toe. It works by cushioning and protecting the toe, reducing friction between the foot and footwear and acting as a shock absorber. Gel slowly releases medical grade mineral oil (USP) which softens and moisturises skin. This helps slow and decrease inflammation and irritation over the area.
Tailor's bunion, or Bunionette, is a condition caused as a result of inflammation of the fifth metatarsal bone at the base of the little toe. It may also be known as Metatarsalgia or intractable plantar keratosis. It is mostly similar to a bunion (the same type of ailment affecting the big toe). It is called Tailor's Bunion because in past centuries, tailors sat cross-legged, and this was thought to cause this protrusion on the outside aspect of the foot. Often a tailor's bunion is caused by a faulty mechanical structure of the foot. The fifth metatarsal bone starts to protrude outward, while the little toe moves inward. This change in alignment creates an enlargement on the outside of the foot.
The soft and flexible toe separators are what you need to protect and correct dislocated and overlapping toes. It is also useful for the separation of those toes that rub against each other. This helps to reduce the risk of fungal infections, and also minimises friction that can lead to painful injuries of the toes.
