This brace designed to accompany the tarsus and protect against overload. The ‘range of motion (movement) of the joint can influence through a built-in buffer. The brace is used in severe osteoarthritis or other overload of the joint. Often, lameness occurs due to pain related symptoms.

We apply a variation where the heel is dynamically fitted and the foot section rigid trapped, so that the heel maintains a reasonable functionality but not the foot.

The brace is used as a dynamic support to both the heel and foot. This results in  optimal alignment of both joints in combination with optimal freedom of movement of the dog.

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 to the carpus.

Tarsal Brace – Rigid

If no (or limited) movement of the tarsus is is desired, we can make a tarsal 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 heel should be completely relieved from overload but the foot should be allowed sufficient mobility, we often combine the rigid tarsal brace with a dynamic foot support.

It is possible to limit the extension for the heel as well as the extension at the wrist. In this brace the flex of the shells at the front of the leg  are provided with a rubber buffer and the flexion in the hock joint may be limited to any desired angle.

The STP-brace ™ is a dynamic knee brace for postoperative relieve. By being able to (temporarily)relieve the knee by immobilize both the knee and the heel in any position. Taxation of the leg is also possible, so that the dog can rehabilitate quickly. The immobilization can be lifted so that the brace can also be used for further rehabilitation process.
