Mr. Sakamoto (the inventor), was aware of the Hallux Valgus epidemic, so he looked into the aids available. There were many products available, however many flaws could be found in the designs. So he took it upon himself to improve on them.
This is what makes Bochikun differ from the rest:
Simple bunion aids that are places between the toes, shifts all the pressure on the lesser toes, which in itself can cause deformities.
Bochikun wraps around the back of the foot, transferring the pressure to the heel, which unlike the smaller toes can take the pressure without any implications.
Many of the solid splints that just force the toe straight no matter the stages of deformity can cause the user tremendous discomfort.
Bochikun, has three straps on the side remaining freely adjustable, so not to cause pain to people with more severe deviations. It can be gradually fastened in accordance with the patient’s progress.
Not to mention those with uncomfortable, bulky solid attachments, simply cannot be worn under shoes, limiting them to night time use.
Our supporter is made from light but very durable material, so it can be worn comfortably and unobtrusively under your favourite shoes.
With over 80% of the population suffering from Hallux Valgus, we almost all know someone with it. Don’t allow your friends, family or patients to suffer a
ny longer. Recommend a pair of “Bochikun”.
