Hallux valgus is 3 times more common in females that may cause uncomfortable deformity of foot , problem with wearing unsuitable and narrow-toed box shoes and pain on the inside of the big toe over the metatarsal joint , therefore patients may refer to physician. Untreated Hallux valgus may cause hamer toe deformity of the second toe.

Two groups of 30cases were ramdomly selected and then the splints designed by us were given to case group and Night splint and interdigital pad were given to the control group. The patients were followed for one year as every three months and in every time weight bearing antroposterior radiography of both foot were taken and Hallux valgus and inter metatarsal angles were measured, and data were analyzed using SPSS and repeated measure test. Results: In the patients who used our splints regularly Hallux valgus angles decresed more considerably than those who used splints available on the market ( p<0.001).
