These pads are particularly helpful with painful distal tip lesions caused by hammer toes.the pad nestled in the sulcus area at the base of the toes and lift the toes just enough to relieve pressure on that distal tip. It does not lift its enough to cause secondary pressure if the shoes are appropriately fitted. In my practice I have found that this is the most requested and most consistently warned pad that I dispense. Unless the patients are neuropathic, these distal tip lesions are extremely painful. They can easily develop into significant ulcerations. Both the pain and the potential ulcerations are alleviated with these fabulous pad. Each pad will last. The patient for many months and can easily be cleaned with soap and water in the sink.

***The picture of the toes (picture #4 above) demonstrates a distal tip lesions with underlying ulceration. This occurs when a hammertoe causes pressure on the distal tip of the toe rather than the pulpy plantar surface. These pads can alleviate that pressure by gently repositioning the toe. No permanent changes made in the toe. As with any pad, the effectiveness is only during the time the patient wears the pad.
