The BORT Valco® SOFT Hallux Valgus Brace serves postopera-tive and conservative treatment of hallux valgus (large toe malpositioning). The brace can be worn both on bandages and also in sufciently spacious shoes during the daytime or at night. The padded aluminium reinforcement splint should be shaped to the individual anatomical situation by bending before initial tting in order to avoid pressure sores. Four optionally applicable toe correction straps effectively prevent a claw position of the second to fth toes.
Instruction to use:
Open the support fully in a rst step and place it on the ground. Then, place the affected foot on the support so that the side reinforcement splint ends in the front area at the tip of the large toe. With the next step, guide the sealing tape around the metatarsus and close the Velcro fastener using appropri- ate tension. Here, you must observe that the integrated splay foot pad should be placed as centrally as possible behind the metatarsus heads II-IV.
With the next step, guide the large toe tape around the large toe using appropriate tension and close the attached Velcro fastener.
If desired or prescribed by the doctor, toes II to V can be kept in an upright position using the enclosed to correction straps. For this purpose, guide the straps around the respective toes and Velcro them on to the lower side of the support using ap- propriate tension.
