The Oppo Medical Gel Cushion is a fully lined gel cushion tube that you wear on your toes to soothe lesions caused by interdigital pressure or rubbing. It also reduces pain from corns, blisters and hammer toes.
If you spend a lot of time on your feet as part of your daily routine, these gel cushions can offer you significant from the pressure of your toes rubbing against each other. This is especially true if you suffer from calluses. The skin between your toes tends to be more sensitive than other areas, leading to a greater vulnerability to calluses or corns in that area.
If you play sports that require a lot of walking (e.g. golf) or hike as a recreational pastime, the Oppo Medical Gel Cushion will also be a source of significant relief.
To apply the gel cushion, first use a pair of scissors to cut off a segment of the required length. This should be just shorter than the toe to which you are going to apply it. Then slide it on to the toe. Use the remaining gel cushion in the same way on any other toes that are causing you irritation or discomfort. For best results, remove the cushion once daily for a few minutes.
You can also wear the gel cushion with socks by first applying it and then putting your socks on over it in the normal manner. You can also wear the gel cushion with or without shoes.
Cleaning the gel cushion is simple – just hand wash it in lukewarm water with a mild detergent and then let it air dry. Avoid using fabric softener or detergent. Do not machine wash or tumble dry the gel cushion.
