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.
