The BioSkin™ Hallux Control Strap supports proper healing after bunion correction by providing splinting, stretching and strengthening of the soft-tissues and tendons.
- Splinting – maintains the hallux in a neutral position during critical soft tissue healing after bunionectomy
- Stretching – stretches extensor tendons after primary healing to improve ROM and allow normal gait
- Strengthening – provides resistance for patients to strengthen FHL for strong toe-off
Note: The BioSkin™ Hallux Control Strap must be worn with the Calibrated Midfoot Compression Wrap (CMC) which provides and attachment point. The CMC Wrap does not cover the ankle, and the calibration lines can be used to measure changes in swelling of the foot. Made from hypoallergenic, non-slip material and fits inside normal footwear. The CMC wrap is included.
Alternatively, the BioSkin™ Hallux Control Strap can be used alongside the BioSkin™ AFTR brace.
