STIFLE (KNEE) ORTHOSIS

   
Following a trauma such as a fall on the ice, the knee could undergo a partial or total ligament rupture causing instability and pain during movement of the knee. A brace may significantly stabilize the affected joint permitting the animal to find a more adequate and functional locomotion.
Strap system developed by Ortho Design to maintain the orthosis properly and comfortably on the dog's knee.  

 

HOCK (ANKLE) ORTHOSIS  
 
Following a fracture, a ligament injury, surgery, contracture, etc., the ankle ortheses (articulated or not) can thus be used to limit and control the flexion, extension and lateral movements.  
Ankle orthosis (tarsus) for a cat who suffered a fracture. This apparatus allows for a complete immobilization thus promoting healing.  

 

HOCK (ANKLE) - PAW ORTHOSIS
Sometimes excessive stretching of the Achilles tendon can cause a total collapse of the ankle.
The ankle-paw orthosis can maintain the ankle in a functional position so that the dog can move properly. This device can also control the hyperextention and lateral instability of the knee by adding correction elements (wedges) at the paw level of the orthosis.

 

SHOULDER ORTHOSIS
Occasionally, active and energetic dogs can suffer from major ligament injuries. An orthosis may be required to support the injured shoulder. This device can also control movement with adjustable hinges located at the scapula, shoulder and elbow.

 

CARPAL (WRIST) ORTHOSIS
The hyperextention wrist (carpus) may be the result of a genetic predisposition of a specific breed or it can also be caused by a trauma suffered at the landing of a jump. The articulated wrist orthosis prevents the abnormal position of the joint while allowing flexion and extension.

 

CARPAL (WRIST) - PAW ORTHOSIS

Misalignment of the wrist in a young dog. A wrist-paw orthosis provides among other, to realign the joint and to control excessive external rotation. This device improves the mobility of the animal as well as prevents the aggravation of the deformity.
