Separate Bunion Regulator's hook-and-loop band from itself and the remove free end. (Leave sewn loop on bottom splint arm, which goes under foot.) Insert big toe between leather-covered cushion and other cushion at the concave part of splint. Be sure leather-covered cushion covers bunion joint. Lead hook-and-loop band around outside of foot and through slot on top splint arm. Adjust tension by pulling band so big toe moves slightly. Fold hook-and-loop band onto itself. Press together to secure.
Limit initial usage periods to 30 minutes each. Gradually wear splint for longer durations and increase band tension as comfort level improves. Results will vary based on the severity and nature of the condition. Wearing the splint regularly can reduce discomfort and pain while possibly slowing the progression of bunion deformity.
Note: This splint is designed for use while resting. We do not recommend using it while standing or walking. If desired, a sock may be worn over the splint to keep your foot warm and reduce interference with bedding. Do not wear this splint with shoes .
