She wore good mountain boots with insoles. These were from specialists and were recommended by renowned mountain sports stores. We met at the Wagenlücke in the Alpstein. She was limping due to great pain, despite the said shoes. The problem was an inflamed hallux valgus on one foot and problems in the ankle area of the other. The prototype of the HALLUXUS H2 provided immediate pressure relief for the hallux. After a few steps and an improvised adhesive bandage with foam for the ankle, her eyes lit up. She thanked me profusely before continuing to climb down the steep slope. Today, that's why we have the H6 for the ankle region.
By chance, we climbed together over the Nasenlöcher (Alpstein) to Öhrligrueb. At noon we had a rest. When I took off my shoes to deflate, Manuela noticed my self-developed prototype. After explaining my problem with hallux valgus and the idea of acutely preventing pain with my own designs, she was thrilled. As it turned out, the lady had written her master's thesis on hallux. Coincidences do exist! She expertly agreed that there were no really good products on the market. Accordingly, I should definitely perfect my prototypes.
To add to my problem, the pain increases with the time it takes to walk. It is a nerve that is sensitive to continuous pressure. With HALLUXUS H6, this neuralgic point is now protected.
