Tape Correction Sox
TAPE SOX Hallux Valgus
Hallux valgus is the most common foot/toe deformity. The ball of the big toe on the inside of the foot clearly protrudes outwards. At the same time, the big toe bends towards the middle toes. If left untreated, hallux valgus can lead to pain and restricted movement as well as to the formation of a hammer toe or arthrosis.
TAPE SOX type hallux valgus stabilise the big toe in its original axis. The result: less pain and a better quality of life.
TAPE SOX type hallux valgus are available in three strengths. With the help of a hanging scale or tension scale with a display accuracy of at least 10 g in the weight range up to 1 kg, it can be determined which correction strength is required. The measured value is a reference point for the strength classification.
The corrective socks should be comfortable and painless to wear after a period of acclimatisation. Ideally, a gap will appear between the big toe and the second toe immediately after putting on the correction sock.
We recommend starting with a light or medium correction sock and using the regular correction strength only after a period of acclimatisation. The wearing time should be increased continuously. The correction socks can also be worn overnight. In this case, it is recommended to use the light or max. medium correction strength.
