|Application Technique Metatarsal Shoe
|Application: The materials should be pre-prepared
to enable rapid application of the bandage. All the necessary materials should
be placed within reach to avoid hold-ups in the procedure.
The patient should be in a position which is comfortable to him/her and the person applying the bandage. This may vary depending on the extent of the injury, the diagnosis, the treatment method and the patient's condition.
Materials required: 1 x 5 cm Delta Cast Conformable polyester support bandage and hydrogel-coated casting gloves, toweling tubular bandage, fleece padding, adhesive bandage, bandage scissors, felt-tip pen.
The small number of layers means that the cast remains semi-flexible and can be adjusted depending on the individual state of the swelling (looser or tighter). To do this, the adhesive bandage is removed and the cast altered for a perfect fit. Re-application is carried out as described above.
Combination of metatarsalshoe and ankle brace. This variant allows for plantar and dorsal flexion with reduced supination and pronation.
