The Sesamoiditis device is designed to treat common inflammation of the sesamoid bones, as well as bipartite symptoms or sesamoid fractures. It effectively offloads the sesamoids, both tibial and fibular, with a first-ray cutout in the polypropylene frame and a first metatarsal head cutout in the extension. Precise accommodation for the sesamoid pressure is provided by placing a donut-shaped aperture under the first metatarsal head rather than a nonspecific balance pad. This pathology device is designed to fit in most standard shoes with removable sock liners or insoles. The Sesamoiditis is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
