ValguLoc II holds the big toe at the correct angle for effective treatment. Flexion and extension can be adjusted gradually, depending on treatment requirements, using the multi-dimensional joint. The toe can therefore first be splinted and rested in the post-operative period, and then gradually allowed greater freedom of movement, without this leading to another misalignment. The flat construction of the stabilizing orthosis relieves the metatarsophalangeal joint.
Why We Like It
ValguLoc fits snugly on the foot, giving secure support and guidance, either during the night or in comfortable shoes during the day. The orthosis is very easy to put on and take off using flat Velcro fastenings; its slim, anatomical overall design increases wearing comfort. If required, the splint material can be reshaped thermoplastically to suit the individual using the low-fatigue padding on the inside.
What Makes It Different
The ValguLoc allows you or your physician to adjust the Flexion and extension of your big toe. This allows the ValguLoc II to immobilize the metatarsophalangeal joint after surgery, and free it up step by step during the mobilization phase to protect it against excessive strain. It also offers support during the nonsurgical functional treatment of the misalignment. The orthosis is anatomically contoured and lays flat against the foot. This means ValguLoc II will not cause pressure points and can be worn in comfortable shoes.The orthosis can be worn on the right and left foot.
