Silicone Toe Crescent
When should it be used?
Consider using this pad to prevent the tops of your patient’s toes from rubbing against their shoes (if they had a corn for instance).
1 Mixing the Silicone
Fold the silicone base around the catalyst and begin rolling into a ball, until it starts to firm and is evenly mixed.
2 Placing the Device
Loop the silicone around the top of the toe, feeding it between the toes on either side.
3 Moulding the Silicone
Tease the silicone into position by putting slight pressure onto the device.
- Make sure it forms nicely around the area that requires pressure relief.
- Ensure you don’t make the device too thin between the toes as it will wear out quicker.
4 Leave to set
Leave the device to set and then remove it from the foot.
- Make sure the device isn’t removed too early or it will stretch out of shape.
