The Oppo Medical Gel Bunion Sleeve positions a gel pad over your bunions to help relieve the pain they cause. The sleeve performs three primary functions:
- It prevents direct contact between your metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint and the inside of your shoe. This helps to prevent the pain you would feel if your joint was directly touching the inside of your shoe.
- It changes the alignment of your big toe joint and puts it into its correct position. This reduces pressure on your MTP joint. It also improves your balance and ability to properly walk and run.
- By reducing the pressure of your bunion on the MTP joint, the Gel Bunion Sleeve helps to prevent the other long term damage that your bunion can cause.
