May 4, 2021 (Colleyville, TX) – Medi-Dyne, a leading producer of innovative pain prevention “Products that Keep People Moving™”, announces the introduction of the Tuli’s® HammerRx™ Support Strap.
The Tuli’s HammerRx was designed by a leading foot and ankle surgeon to treat hammertoe. Hammertoe is identified as a toe that bends or curls downward instead of pointing forward. It is usually experienced on the middle joint of the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th toe, and occurs when there is an imbalance of muscles, tendons, and ligaments that normally keep the toe straight.
Over 7 million people in the U.S. have experienced hammertoe, and is often caused by ill-fitting shoes, high arches, or a trauma. Other risk factors include age, sex, toe length, arthritis, and diabetes.
“Cases of hammertoe appear to be on the rise, and sufferers tend to have trouble finding relief for their condition. Many try using inserts, gel pads and spacers to no avail. Physicians often tape patients’ toes to keep them in the correct position, but this is time consuming and difficult for a patient to do on their own. We sought to develop a product that would provide relief from symptoms and be easy to use. We are excited to say that because of our partner’s expertise and experience, his design does just that”, stated Craig DiGiovanni, Founding Partner, Medi-Dyne Healthcare Products.
The Tuli’s HammerRx replaces taping and provides improved and more comfortable results. It gently straightens and properly aligns the toe for all-day comfort. It can be used as a treatment for minor conditions of hammertoe, and for the more serious situations where surgery is required, it can be used as a postop therapy to protect the surgery results and aid in healing.
The HammerRx is fully adjustable to function for all patients and includes industry leading Sof-Flex™ material which combines maximum flexibility with softness and breathability. The soft touch hook and loop closures secure the straps in place without causing any irritation. HammerRx is easy to apply and use and can be worn with any type of shoe or sandal or even when barefoot.
