NovaPED carbon — Hallux Rigidus

Hallux rigidus describes the restriction of joint motion at the base of the big toe. It is usually caused by arthrosis. Hallux rigidus progresses and causes increasing pain in the metatarsophalangeal joint.

The main functional characteristic of an insole for hallux rigidus is the rigidus spring. This \'splints\' the metatarsophalangeal joint and thus limits its mobility. This way, the forces are transferred from the joint to the stiffening material.

In addition to the desired level of stability, material thickness must be taken into consideration during rigid spring production. Thanks to their extremely thin and light carbon design, the insoles take up minimal space inside the shoe. This leaves more room for padding elements and, of course, the foot itself.

The insole is available with a short or long spring in a range of widths and padding thicknesses, or as a chassis version without padding. All versions come with a suitable compensation insole.
