Met Pads



Metatarsal Pads or Met Pads

Metatarsal pads or met pads help relieve pressure on the metatarsal heads and reduce pressure to interdigital nerves and neuromas.

They are designed to take pressure off of the metatarsal head of your foot and move it to the shaft of the metatarsal and surrounding area.

This objective of the Met Pad is to spread out the pressure away from the region of the foot causing pain. By distributing the pressure more evenly it helps to decrease localized pressure at the source of the pain at the metatarsal head.

MT Pads and Custom Orthotics

Met Pads are also commonly incorporated into custom foot orthotics. The role of the custom foot orthotic is to supply global support the foot structure, while the addition of the MT pad can target localized regions of the foot with variables such as location, height, material selection as well as custom shaping.
