Shipping Confusion for X1 Blade for Hallux Rigidus

Contact Name: Thomas Duxxxx Phone: 802-xxx-xxxx Email Address: txxdux@gmail.com Comments or Questions: Duplicate order: Marcia D. ordered an X1 Blade: order #2867. We were notified the order was rejected. I re-ordered: order #2871, which was shipped. We were then notified order #2867 was shipped. I replied to that email asking that you cancel order #2867, and explained it was now a duplicate order. There has been no reply from Indian Brace. What is the status of order # 2867? Thank you, Thomas D.

Answer: Friday, July 27, 2012 12:33 PM To: tomdux@gmail.com Subject: Order 2867 We only shipped the one and you were only charged for one under the second invoice. Sorry for the confusion. Clyde

Thanks for the update. We received the item today. It fits perfectly & is very comfortable after a brief walk. Tom

New X1 Blade for 5th Metatarsal (Jones) Fractures

Clyde's x1 blade® for 5th metatarsal fractures - a treatment option for 5th metatarsal fractures (jones fracture) and post-op rehab.

how does the x5 blade work? by loading the body and head of the 5th metatarsal on a more rigid but dynamic step (x5 blade®) this slight elevation unloads the base and tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal without restricting the entire foot.  The X5 Blade is a great orthotic as a transition into an athletic shoe from a walking boot or shoe.

Two models to choose from - athletic model (more robust) and non-athletic model for rehab.

Forefoot Pain / Neuroma Pain Relief

Hello Clyde, I received the X1 Blade for neuroma pain on Saturday. I put it in my tennis shoes and have been trying to wear those shoes as much as possible. Kind of hard when I have to dress up for work. I feel a little pressure when exercising in the shoes but nothing like I used to. When I take them off I do not have any pain in my foot. No swelling today in the foot. By this time of the day I usually get swelling on the dorsal of my foot. I will keep you posted. Thanks again. If you design one for dress shoes, I will be happy to be your research subject. Hope all is well. Trudy

Toe Joint Pain/Hallux Rigidus Relief

I had surgery in January 2009 to remove a bone spur on my left big toe. The doc said that this type of injury can stem from turf toe. I had turf toe in high school (10 years ago) and never got it treated. I began running longer distances (1 marathon, 2 halfs, 3rd in november) 2.5 years ago and started having issues last year with pain. I have the beginning of arthritis in the big toe joint.

I was contemplating a joint replacement but felt that this was too much too soon and just opted for the bone spur removal. I wasn't convinced that was going to work and felt it might prevent me even more from running. It took a while for me to get back into it as I didn't fully recover from the surgery for at least 3-4 months (doc said 1-2). He gave me a carbon fiber plate to put in my shoe but it definitely was not good for running as it stiffened the entire shoe and made running uncomfortable.

Luckily I found a different plate that is more flexible throughout but still stiff where you need it (beneath the big toe). It is called the X1-Blade made by indiana brace (http://02b20d1.netsolstores.com/X1BladeforTurfToePain.aspx) for help with turf toe. I found this extremely helpful in getting back into running. I read testimonials and talked to the guy who makes them. I recommend this before any other surgery and wish I knew about this 10 years ago.

Best of luck.
