More than half the women in America have bunions, a common deformity often blamed on wearing tight, narrow shoes. Bunions cause the base of your big toe (Metatarsophalangeal Joint) to enlarge and protrude. The skin over it may be red and tender. Wearing any type of shoe may be painful. This joint flexes with every step you take. The bigger your bunion gets, the more it hurts to walk. Bursitis may set in. Your big toe may angle toward your second toe, or even move all the way under it. The skin on the bottom of your foot may become thicker and painful.Pressure from your big toe may force your second toe out of alignment, sometimes overlapping your third toe. If your bunion gets too severe, it may be difficult to walk. Your pain may become chronic and you may develop arthritis.

Most bunions can be treated without surgery by wearing protective pads to cushion the painful area, and of course, avoiding ill-fitting shoes in the first place.Bunion surgery, or bunionectomy, realigns the bone, ligaments, tendons and nerves so your big toe can be brought back to its correct position. Many bunion surgeries are performed on a same-day basis (no hospital stay) using an ankle-block anesthesia. A long recovery is common and may include persistent swelling and stiffness.



Why do we need Bunion Regulators?

because they:

-Treat and alleviate pain

- Reduce pressure and friction on big toe

- Correct toes when walking

- Hold toes straighter, in normal position

- Control toe-against-toe irritation

- Prevent Bunions

Also they are:

- Recommended by specialists

- Durable

- Simple

- Safe and comfortable


The " MARCIN" Bunion regulators have been designed and patented in Poland. The regulators, manufactured for twenty years have gained recognition not only among users but also among specialists. They are recommended by orthopaedists and surgeons in the prevention and treatment of hallux valgus and in postoperative rehabilitation.




It is an appropriate way of prevention and treatment of hallux valgus. The " MARCIN I" regulator is used during sleep or rest. Its use is not troublesome and the product is highly effective due to keeping the great toe in correct position. It is the only article from the group of foot orthopaedic devices, containing natural leather elements.

Using bunion regulator is not difficult. It is highly effective in maintaining the toe in the keeping the correct possition for long hours of sleep or relaxation.

We suggest short foot exercises in connection with use of the bunion regulator:


Hold the big and a little toes of your foot with your hands. Pull the toes apart (outward) until slightly painful and hold for several seconds. Repeat excersise several times.


Instruction for use:

 After you washed your feet and excersised put the bunion regulator on the foot.The

" MARCIN" for the left foot is marked with the letter "L", for the right foot with the letter "R" . Apply the bunion regulator on the foot so that its round part lined with a foamy material lies between the big toe and the remaining teos. The leather bandshould be placed so that it can attachto the inner part of thefoot at the level of deformity. Pull the tightening band attached to the lower arm along the outer part of the foot to the fastener on the upper arm and back in the opposite direction. Fasten with the hook and eye fastener (Velcro) band to the required corrective strength.

Gradual increasing of tightening of Velcro's strength is recommended. Please decrease the strength of correction, if the pain will appear.



 in respect of functionality, is a continuation of the “ MARCIN II “ regulator. It is made of more technologically sophisticated material, is more comfortable, softer, and highly durable.



 Wearing fashionable but uncomfortable tight shoes is one of the main reasons of intoe development, ugly and painfull foot deformity called hallux valgus.


Hallux Valgus is an inborn or acquired foot deformity. It develops frequently with transverse platypodia. It is the result of progressing lateral deviation of the hallux (I.e. Great toe) in the metatarsophalangeal joint and medial deviation in the position of the first matatarsal bone.A reddening and oedema develop on the hallux and pain is also present.


The disease is common, especially among women. It involves at least one in forty female patients over the age of 50. That constitutes a social problem, since the patients suffering from that disease have significant difficulties in walking.


  Why does hallux valgus develop?

- heredity

- wearing high-heeled shoes

- too tight shoes

- connective and muscular tissue diseases


  Advices for persons with developing hallux valgus:

•wear comfortable low-heeled shoes of appropriate size, with not too narrow heel, made of air-permeable material, not allowing foot to sweat.

•Change shoes several times a day as to overload different parts of foot. It is important to maintain appropriate body weight. Prolonged work in standing position is not recommended,

•after taking your shoes off, perform exercises of toes, spreading them, bending, extending in direction opposite to the valgity and also perform circular movements while abducting the great toe,

•put the “ MARCIN I “ bunion regulator on your foot for the night and at any time and put on the “ MARCIN II “ or “ MARCIN II Lux” regulators while walking.


 Treatment of developing hallux valgus is troublesome and it requires systematic and continuous work. There is a possibility of significant inhibition of the progression of that disease and of elimination of pain without the need for surgical treatment.


  Prophylaxis and treatment of the INTOE:

•systematic exercises of the feet,

•selection of appropriate shoes by a specialist,

•wearing bunion regulators,

•surgical treatment when the disease is at advanced stages ( but even after the surgery, pain and deformation of the toe may be a trouble too . So the best way is prevention!!!)
