Carpal Orthosis

Carpal Brace – Dynamic

Dynamic Carpal Brace - Articulating without Foot Support

Dynamic Carpal Brace. Shown here is a dog carpal brace.

This brace is specially designed to align the carpal wrist and protect it from overload. We can influence the ‘range of motion’ of the joint with a built-in buffer. The brace is used in severe osteoarthritis or other overload of the joint. Lameness often occurs from the pain related symptoms.

Carpal Brace – Dynamic & Adjustable

If we want to influence or temporarily limit the range of motion in the carpal joint, we make the dynamic carpal brace adjustable by means of a nylon or elastic band at the front of the brace.

If there are limitations in the paw section we can also equip the dynamic carpal brace with a paw support.

If a dynamic support of the forefoot is necessary / desirable, we can also design the top part of the brace with a dynamic foot support. The brace is made to allow the dynamic of the foot section.

Carpal Brace – Adjustable Dynamic with Foot Support

If the foot is to be supported, but mobility of the foot is limited, then it should be kept limited by making the foot part rigid by  means of an adjustable nylon on the rigid band at the back of the brace where the degree of mobility of the “wrist” can be restricted.

This brace is a further developed from the hyperextension carpal brace where we had  very good results dogs to over 30 kg in the prevention of sagging in the carpus (wrist).Through the specially developed hinges we can now also overcome the much heavier dogs / heavier overload on the carpus.

Carpal Brace – Rigid

The rigid carpal brace can be used to temporarily immobilizing the “wrist”. At an additional cost, it is also possible to adapted the brace afterwards to a dynamic brace.

If the motion of the carpal joint is not is required (or limited), we can make a carpal brace without buffer and without possibilities of movement. However, the dynamic brace is preferred, since a large extend of the  joint can be used. This promotes the mobility of the dog.

If the “wrist” should be completely relieved and motion is not allowed, but the foot section should still has some form of mobility and physical capacity, we can make the forefoot portion of the rigid carpal brace more dynamic.
