Thursday's Orthotic Discussion of the Week: First Toe Stability aid with Budin Splints


























I love Budin Splints to stabilize the 2nd metatarsal phalangeal joint. In this images, I am failing at my goal. I need to get the 2nd metatarsal down more, so that when the patient stands, the second acts as a stabilizing force against the first. If the second can be brought down with a tighter fit, or my changing to a double Budin Splint, I will have achieved a more stable first ray. The more stable this medial column, the more stability and comfort there will be in the body.
