Orthoses made of silicones
For the construction of orthoses we offer different silicones (see product list below).
Primus inter pares is our Erkoton 20/30.
Dependent on the material´s hardness individual silicone orthoses made of Erkoton 20/30 are used for pressure protection (clavus interdigital) or for correcting effects (between toe chock for hallux valgus). The Erkoton orthoses inhibit inflammations and contribute to getting painless.

Applications fields are:
  • Hammer-, claw- or rider toes
  • Hallux valgus
  • Deformation with emphasis on toes 2 – 5, mostly occur in combination with flat foot, splayfoot or clawfoot
  • Tender spots (clavus interdigital)
  • Menacing contraction of ankles
  • General aching when walking

These orthoses have the following special features:
  • individual fit
  • different hardness for divers applications
  • Erkoton 20/30 can be grinded
  • Erkoton 30 used for a between toe chock corrects deformation of the big toe and pushes it into normal position
  • very comfortable to wear due to perfect fit

Orthoses of Erkoton 20/30 are soft, flexible parts of silicone which are individually produced according to a patient ´s deformation.
In addition these orthoses can further be adjusted by grinding with Lisko polishing discs.
Silicone orthoses made of Erkoton 20/30 are washable and easy to clean with commercial desinfection means.
Erkoton 20/30 is a very dense material, thus dirt or bacteria cannot settle.
It is not possible to stick with Erkoton 20/30.
Erkoton 20/30 has been developed not to be dependent on a carrier material.

The steps are as follows:
  • Mixing:
    • hardener material (grey) and base material (brown) are to mix in equal parts
    • by mixing a homogeneous color of the mixture is to be achieved
    • mixing time is max. 30 sec.
  • Shaping:
    • the material is to shape to the foot of the patient
    • in case do support the position of the material until it has binded (after about 2 min)
  • Taking off:
    • after about 8 –10 min. you can take off the silicone orthose from the foot
  • Treatment:
    • after 15 min. you can treat the orthose with scissors or grinder
  • Check:
    • walking check

Background knowledge
Deformations with emphasis on toe 2-5 mostly occur as a result of foot deformations as flat foot, splayfoot or clawfoot (Berkemann Fuß Lexikon (german)). The basic ankles are overstretched and the middle- and final ankles are bowed right-angled.
The hallux valgus is a widespread deformation of toes. The metatarsal shifts towards middle of the body, is positioned fairly unprotected directly under the skin and can be felt easily with the finger. This is not an exostose. As well an inflated bursa is palbable, which can be inflammated by (shoe) pressure.
