X-Line DJD (Degenerative Joint Disease)
The X-Line DJD offers rapid relief of this common problem by reducing the loading rate of the 1st metatarso-phalangeal joint, reducing the dorsiflexion bending moments on the hallux, and allowing the hallux to move from a more flexed starting position. The design also reduces the bending moments across the metatarso-phalangeal joints by stiffening the shoe. The X-line DJD has a heel lift to allow easier terminal stance propulsion over the painful joint - we recommend fitting this device into a spacious shoe.
The unique "metatarsal rocker" feature improves the mechanics around the 1st joint, allowing a more comfortable progress for the patient.
The DJD also has a durable, anti-bacterial top cover and the supporting plastic base-shell offers structural rigidity for an effective condition-specific device.
Despite the stifness of the toe joint there are rehabilitation exercises that will greatly help your foot strength to relieve the discomfort and improve the function of your foot.
The first one is using the Healthy Step Latex Exercise Band
The second one is using a Foot Therapy Ball and is a perfect exercise whilst watching TV
and finally,surprisingly, the hardest of them all - Toe motion exercises

It is very difficult to find a range of orthotics which satisfy the needs of the patient, the clinician and the business. The x-line and pedipod range is able to achieve this by offering a product which is comfortable, clinically effective, easily customisable and economical at the same time.
