Commonly referred to as an Achilles, Hock or Thoracic limb brace

CONDITIONS:

  • Primarily used post-operatively from Achilles Tendon repair instead of using an external fixation device which requires drilling into perfectly good bone
  • Two versions: with and without Paw Support Segment
    1. With Paw Segment – Recommended to be added, can always be removed but CANNOT be added later
      • Excellent at evenly distributing pressure
      • Gives more control over the leg with the issue when dog is knuckling
      • Knuckling is common because the superficial digital flexor tendon frequently overrides the injured Achilles tendon
    2. Without Paw Segment - This is advantageous as most dogs like to feel their paw hit the ground.
      • Indicated when dog is not knuckling, has a bilateral diagnosis or is very active
      • Bionic Pets will always suggest the best style of device for each pet’s diagnosis
  • Contracture Option:
    • Used for Carpal Contracture Management using an Ultraflex joint or other means to stretch the Carpal Flexor Ligaments to get to a more functional position

BENEFITS:

  • Stabilizes the joint
  • Provides support to the affected area
  • Decreases healing time and decreases cost
  • Return to improved activity level and near normal joint function
  • Allows for easier wound inspection
  • Release pressure on Contra-lateral Limb
