A RETIRED Bicton nurse is crowd funding for a product she invented, which she claims relieves foot and bunion pain.

The Amitoe uses small sections of resistance band to suspend and stretch the toe muscles at different intensities .

The product has not been medically tested because it would require a trial of 50 people but Madeleine Clozel hopes to raise sufficient funds to make and then sell the devices.

Ms Clozel experienced agonising foot pain for years and took a painkiller nightly to sleep, giving up her favourite past-time of bush walking.

She tried many products without relief then started working on her own product and discovered one day she could walk downhill without pain.

Her family encouraged her to get into business, and the product was trialled on 14 people she claims all experienced relief.
