ErgoPad Redux Hallux


The ErgoPad redux hallux orthopedic orthosis primarily aids the conservative treatment of hallux limitus and hallux rigidus – the restriction of movement or stiffening of the metatarsophalangeal joint. The foot orthosis provides rapid relief for the painful area. This relieving effect is provided by the incorporated "redux" reinforcement element, which is positioned directly underneath the metatarsophalangeal joint and – to ensure the flat positioning of the forefoot – runs along the outer part of the ball of the foot.

  • Relieves the big toe joint
  • Reduces painful rashes when walking
  • Restricts toe movement 



  • High-quality microfiber top cover containing antibacterial silver ions for optimal hygiene in the shoe

  • Narrow version in beige; wide version in brown

  • PU cushion layer


  • Anatomically contoured pad


  • Butterfly-shaped core which provides optimal support for the metatarsal area without making the orthosis too rigid.


  • Provides relief for the painful area; prevents supination of the forefoot; prevents the foot from being levered out of the shoe.


  • Cordura nylon – a long-lasting contact layer between the orthosis and the shoe


The ErgoPad redux hallux orthopedic orthosis from Bauerfeind limits the movement of the metatarsophalangeal joint in the push-off phase and thus provides immediate relief during painful walking movements. To restrict movement, a reinforcement element made from high-quality, permanently flexible plastic is incorporated into the foot orthosis. This element is positioned underneath the metatarsophalangeal joint and runs along the outer forefoot area and to the tip of the big toe. The thin PU cushion layer cushions the foot and distributes forces occurring underneath the forefoot.


The foot orthosis is optimally adjusted to suit the symptoms of hallux limitus/hallux rigidus. The ErgoPad redux hallux can be used for conservative treatment or to supplement therapy. Wearing the foot orthosis may make it possible to successfully delay other more invasive measures such as pain medication and/or surgery. The ErgoPad redux hallux is available in sizes ranging from 35 to 48 and two different widths to ensure fit and comfort for most people. It is designed to fit in most shoes as long as they have a removable inlay that is approximately 3-4 mm thick and is of an equivalent width. Since restrictions of movement in the metatarsophalangeal joint caused by osteoarthritis do not necessarily effect both feet at the same time, the ErgoPad redux hallux can be supplied with the reinforcement element positioned for either the left or the right foot, combined with a complementary orthosis reduced to accommodate the reinforcing element - and of course, it can also be supplied with reinforcement on both sides if required.


  • Suitable for people with hallux limitus/hallux rigidus in one foot or both feet (restriction of movement or stiffening of the metatarsophalangeal joint)

Special Features

  • High-quality synthetic foot orthosis with a low construction height
  • Special "redux" reinforcement element running underneath the metatarsophalangeal joint up to the outer part of the ball of the foot.

Care Instructions

The surfaces can be wiped clean using a mild cleaner/disinfectant (apart from leather top covers)

Do not machine-washable

Do not expose to direct heat (heater, direct sunlight

Life Span

  • High-quality and durable materials mean that the foot orthoses remain serviceable even after prolonged use – but this does fundamentally depend on the load
  • We recommend that the functional properties should be checked regularly (after a maximum of 6 months)


Care Instructions

All Train active supports can be washed separately in the washing machine at 30°C with liquid detergent. Please note the following information:

In the case of products with Velcro straps, these should be removed if possible or firmly attached to the designated place.

If possible, pads or splints should also be removed before washing.

It is recommended to use a laundry net (spin cycle: maximum 500 revolutions per minute). Dry your Train active support in the air and not in the dryer, otherwise, the knitted fabric may be impaired.

Please wash your Train active support regularly so that the compression of the knitted fabric is retained.

1. Train Knit - 20% lighter and more breathable, providing better comfort and compliance

2. Donning and Doffing Stay - Made of rigid polyurethane material, 4x more durable than previous

3. GenuTrain Omega+ Pad - Patented pain-relieving pad encases the kneecap and provides targeted massage

4. Extra Comfort Zone - Softer, more breathable knit in the sensitive popliteal area

5. Meniscus Wings - Provide targeted massage and pain relief to the joint space

6. Hoffa Pads - Stimulate the infrapatellar fat pad to promote the body's natural healing mechanism


After an acute injury or surgery, chronic abnormalities, osteoarthritis or instability in the knee: the GenuTrain relieves pain and promotes movement through intermittent compression massage. This puts you on the right track towards natural movement.

The ring-shaped Omega+ Pad functional cushion securely holds the kneecap in place and reduces edema and swelling. Integrated massage points with specially flexible silicone nubs target particularly painful areas. Two flexible plastic stays on the side ensure that the GenuTrain always fits perfectly. At the top and bottom, integrated grips make it easier to put on and take off the support.


Your body needs to learn how to move naturally again as quickly as possible and avoid incorrect postures adopted to help relieve pain. The Train knit fabric repeatedly stimulates the skin, which promotes movement perception, activates the muscles and stabilizes the joint.

Two massage points called meniscus wings on the sides of the knee provide a targeted pain-relieving effect around the joint space and the menisci. Two additional massage points, the Hoffa spots, stimulate the infrapatellar fat pad with controlled pressure. This has a significant metabolic function and promotes the self-healing process in the knee.

The GenuTrain allows physiotherapy and gentle training to be started at an earlier stage. This enables your knee to recover thanks to active movement. After all, you know that being active is key to good health!
