When should it be used?
If you have a patient that requires the reduction of friction on an area of their foot then consider using this pad.
1 First Steps
Start by cutting a piece of fleecy web into an egg-shape.
- As the material is thin you don’t have to bevel it.
2 Fold the Tape
Next, take two pieces of tape, that are roughly the same length, and fold them in half.
3 Cut the Tape
Proceed to cut the tape, so that there is a slight curve to the edges.
- When you unfold the pieces of tape they should be banana shaped.
4 Placing the Pad
Once you’ve completed the previous steps, peel off the paper backing of the fleecy web and place it over the bunion area you wish to protect.
5 Final Steps
To prevent the pad from moving, take the precut pieces of tape and place them over the pad.
- The shaping of the tape means that it will better contour the curves of the foot.
