The Neuroma device is ideal for patients presenting Morton’s neuroma, or damage and subsequent thickening of a nerve, typically between the third and fourth toes. This is often caused by increasing transverse pressure on the metatarsal heads from a low profile, dress or pointed shoes. Featuring minimal forefoot bulk to reduce transverse metatarsal-head compression, this device also includes a teardrop-shaped neuroma pad in the third interspace to separate the toes the neuroma lies between, reducing pressure on the affected nerve. This pathology device is narrow to fit in low volume shoes as well as shoes with removable sock liners or insoles. If neuroma is not bilateral, please specify which side is affected. The Neuroma is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
