The Flexible Splint for Bunion Relief
AWARD WINNING, GERMAN-ENGINEERED BUNION SPLINT FOR PAIN RELIEF AND CORRECTION Hallux Valgus, the medical term for bunion, is a mal-alignment of the two bones that form the base joint of the big toe (also called the metatarsophalangeal joint). Aside from being unsightly, untreated bunions can be painful and may lead to gait problems.
This innovative hinged splint provides pain relief and is clinically proven to correct mild to moderate mal-positioning of the big toe. Bunion Aid also maintains postsurgical fixation. SOLUTION
Bunion Aid helps restore the natural alignment of the foot and provides correction while walking.

TREAT YOUR BUNION. BECOME ACTIVE AGAIN. Suffering from painful bunions? You’re not alone. More than half of all American women – and a significant number of men – walk with uncomfortable bunions every day. Now, with Bunion Aid™, relief is just a step away! Bunion Aid is the first day and night comfort splint designed to prevent and correct big toe mal-positioning, offering pain relief from bunions. Developed by German scientists and orthopedists, Bunion Aid is a hallux valgus splint that can be worn both at night and during the day.
Bunion Aid is the only therapeutic hinged splint that combines the comfort of a soft splint with the corrective support of a rigid night splint. • Wear day or night, while walking or resting. • Thin and light-weight, wear barefoot or in wide-fitting shoes. • One size fits most, left or right foot; professional fitting is not necessary. • High-quality hinge and hook & loop straps are long lasting and washable.
Metatarsal pad supports the transverse arch. (Optional) Anatomically curved straps provide comfort and durability. Padded hinged splint protects irritated tissue and provides correction through range of motion.
Adjustable strapping system realigns big toe.
• Dual strapping system stabilizes the metatarsal arch.
Bunion Splint Comparison Chart Treatment Requirements
Required Features in a Splint Avoid surgery by correcting toe mal-positioning in mild to moderate bunions. When the toe is aligned using a rigid splint, pressure on the deep tissue surrounding the joint is decreased. Adjust tension with anatomically curved hook & loop straps corrects bunions and provides comfort.
Corrective support while walking
A hinged splint provides corrective support throughout the range of motion. Dual strapping system around the metatarsal arch is secure and prevents slippage. Strength of high grade plastic, PEEK®, in hinge enables walking.
Protection of bunion
Splint with padded lining protects irritated tissue of bunion and absorbs pressure.
No bulk of any kind
Thin straps avoid bulk, especially in the interspace of the 1st and 2nd toes.
Proper pressure application
of the foot rather than on the upper bonier surface of the foot. Adjustable metatarsal pad relieves strain on * toe joints, optimizing pressure distribution.
Convenience & comfort
not necessary. Ongoing use of a splint post-operatively helps prevent reoccurrence of a bunion.
