Bunion Splint Debuts as Next Fashion Statement in Sports Accessories

Alpha Orthotics adds flair to an otherwise “orthotic, medicinal” look of bunion splints

TIBURON, Calif.--()--Alpha Orthotics Corp’s newest product, Bunion Aid® Sport Splint, treats bunions while dressing up the foot with neon orange and action black. No other bunion splint has the audacity to strut its color. Leave it to the Germans, who designed and engineered award-winning Bunion Aid®, to add flair to an otherwise “orthotic, medicinal” look.

Bill Cunningham of The New York Times observed at New York Fashion Week, “Three colors proved to be favorites: chartreuse, followed by an almost fluorescent orange, and a dash of blue, particularly in shoes and bags.” Even though models did not don a Bunion Aid Sport Splint on the runway, it is time to consider a bunion splint as a fashionable sports accessory.

Sporting Goods Manufacturer Association research shows substantial growth in individual sports. With 76 million surviving baby boomers, participation in sports and exercise is expected to continue to grow. Health clubs accommodated 50 million members in 2010, up 10.8% over previous year. This interest in sports is influencing the latest trends in fashion, fabrics and colors.

As people age and participate in high-impact exercises, there is increased risk of having fallen arches, bunions, hammertoes, and possibly, bunion surgery. Wearing a stylish bunion splint, such as Bunion Aid Sport Splint, before and after sports is a convenient way to treat bunions and stabilize the metatarsal and mid-foot arches.

With each step, this patented flexible bunion splint relieves bunion pain while straightening the big toe. It combines the comfort and protection of a soft day splint and the corrective support of a rigid night splint. The high grade plastic of its thin-profiled hinged splint allows for natural flexing action of the big toe and does not break under load. It is designed for men and women. It is adjustable; one size fits most; and it can be worn on the left or right foot. The Sport Splint, a limited edition, has the same features of Bunion Aid which is available in white.
