TAPING SOCKS® FOR BUNION & HAMMERTOES
Taping-Socks® are a medical sock that can be used to treat hallux valgus (also known as bunions) and hammer toes. These comfortable socks combine the advantages of conservative therapy and Kinesio Taping (KT Tape) without side effects. The tape is incorporated into the sock to counteract toe misalignment by gently pulling the toes back to their proper position. In the photos below you can observe the toes begin to align as soon as the patient put the sock on. They may be used preventatively, therapeutically, or even after an operation.
Hallux Valgus (Bunion) Sock - $56.00
The Hallux Valgus (or Bunion) sock is a Japanese Tabi-sock with a separate big toe sleeve. The tape begins at the first joint of the big toe and runs on the inside of the foot across the bunion area towards the heel. With the sock on the foot, the big toe should visibly separate from the second toe when it isn't bearing weight.
Hammertoe/ Bunion Sock - $59.00
In addition to the process described for the Hallux Valgus model, you must make sure that the second toe is in the correct toe sleeve and that it fills it up completely. The Tape for the hammertoe must come to rest above the second knuckle (closest to the beginning of the toe) so it can pull the 2nd toe downwards.
