Product Description & Reviews
AliMed HVO is a lightweight, orthosis you can custom fabricate right in your office or in the O.R. It provides progressive correction of hallux valgus and delivers complete toe stability. Simply heat the thermo-moldable splint blank in a hot water bath then mold it to the user. Once cooled, it holds its shape and will not stretch. You can mold the HVO to exact correction, either post-surgically or as a night splint, and remold it for progressive splinting. Eliminate the bulky bandages and plaster associated with post-operative care. The HVO holds the toe position and still allows for post-op swelling -- just loosen the hook and loop strap (included). Washable. One size. Instructions included. When to use this splint: Juvenile hallux valgus: Corrects 50% of inoperable hallux valgus deviations. Stabilizes deviation in 85% of users after two years of use. For patients 16 years of age and younger. Painful hallux valgus: For very mild deformities causing soreness at metatarsal head. Can relieve pain after just a few weeks of use. Postsurgical immobilization: Maintains positioning. Users can walk with a postsurgical shoe as soon as pain subsides. Nonsurgical cases: Severe bursitis where surgery is not possible. Holds the large toe so tissues can heal. Also help correct a mild deviation that patient finds aesthetically unacceptable.
