More About This Product
Bauerfeind® ViscoHeel® K Heel Cushions are a corrective measure for knock-knees or bandy legs, slightly correcting the malpositioning of the heel and therefore alleviate associated pain. Cushion pads painful heel edges and is slightly raised on the sides. The heel is guided away from the inward tilt typical for knock-knees (valgus position), and from the outward tilt typical for bandy legs (varus position). Unilateral stress on the locomotor system is counteracted, which results in a general strain relief from the foot right up to the lower back. Pressure peaks are reduced, and joints are relieved and protected from advancing osteoarthritis. Viscoelastic heel cushion optimally adapts to the shape of the foot and shoe. High-quality, nonslip silicone is durable, gentle on skin, and easy to clean.
Indications: Varus or valgus alignment of the heel and conditions that require realignment of the heel or knee
Sizing: Based on shoe size.
