Supporting the 21st century Hallux Valgus Supporter Bochikun

Mr Sakamoto

Mr Sakamoto, the inventor of “Bochikun®”, has more than 35 years experience in the medical world and has been running his own Orthopedic clinic for more than 30 years.

Sakomoto-sanMr Sakamoto is a qualified Judo therapist also called  Bonesetter which is the national qualification in Japan by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

It was while working in a hospital, that Mr Sakamoto first became aware of the sheer number of people who were suffering with knee and leg joint pains. He soon noticed that the sufferers feet all had a common deformity.
At first he thought it was only occurring in the city, but everywhere went he saw the same thing and so many people are suffering.

After researching existing products, he found, the only ones available to the public were solid plastic, which were hard on feet and couldn’t be worn for long hours. Also, the shapes designed did not allow for all the different deformities and severity. Not only that, the splints made to be put between your toes, caused deformities to the other toes.
