Re-usable GEL TOE CAP is similar to our GEL TOE STRIP but it is coated all-round to protect toes from rubbing including ends of toes.
Hapla Gel (similar to Silipos Gel) is a polymer gel containing a medical grade mineral oil surrounded by an elasticated tube. The gel is non-compressable and helps dissipate any pressure and absorbs shock & shearing. Its properties cannot be duplicated by conventional materials such as foams and it conforms to any uneven surface making it ideal for protection of toes and fingers.
It helps to relieve pressure and friction from sore toes whilst the mineral oil is slowly released and helps to soften and lubricate painful corns / callouses. They can be washed under the cold water tap but do not use soap as this can destroy the gel inside the strip. In addition, do not dry this item on the radiator as this tends to dry out the mineral oil in the gel – let the product dry in the air.
The caps are one size fits all (they stretch to fit even the biggest toe). Supplied in a length ideal as a long toe cover for 1 toe or for small toes it can be cut into 1 cap and 1 strip. One of the advantages over conventional toe foam is that the strips and caps to do not bottom out and therefore last longer offering more reliable protection. These strips tend to last for a minimum of 3 weeks when used regularly.
It should not be used on open wounds due to the mineral oil in the gel and should be removed at night giving the foot time to breathe.
