Toe orthoses make it possible to treat deformities of the toes. The orthosis, which is custom manufactured out of silicone elastomer, is precisely molded to the client’s foot. These small orthoses surround the toes or are inserted between them in order to train them to adopt a specific desired position.
Toe orthoses also serve a protective purpose. For example, certain diabetic or arthritic patients may exhibit hyperkeratosis or other problems due to localized pressure on the skin. By inserting a toe orthosis, the risk of injury is reduced.
Toe orthoses also enable the correction of reducible deformities of the toes. Both children and adults can use these orthoses to train the toes into a more comfortable, natural position, which can help prevent the development of more serious problems of the feet and the joints above them in the future.Taking your foot-print
