Metatarsal Bar Pad

When should it be used?

If you have a patient who needs their metatarsal heads offloading, then consider using a metatarsal bar pad.

1 First Steps

Start by cutting the pad, so that its shape follows that of the metatarsal heads.

2 Bevel the pad

Next you want to cut a top bevel all the way around the pad.

3 Final Steps

Peel off the paper backing and apply the pad to the foot.

  • Make sure that the top bevel is placed over the top of the metatarsal heads.
  • The thickest part of the pad should be just behind the metatarso phalangeal joints.
  • If you feel it needs to be secured, then consider using strapping.
