Innovative Biomechanics of Our Dog Elbow Braces
The canine elbow is a unique joint susceptible to injury and instability. Elbow joint arthritis, medial compartment syndrome, elbow valgus, elbow varus, post-op arthrodesis, and DJD presentations are common orthopedic injuries that can affect your pet’s elbow joint and cause pain and lameness. The OrthoPets Elbow Brace stabilizes and supports your dog’s elbow joint by creating a 3-Point Corrective System. This advanced biomechanical support system stabilizes your dog’s elbow joint by applying a corrective force location supporting the elbow joint and two counter force locations that complete the dynamic mechanical environment acting within the OrthoPets Elbow Brace system.
Dog Elbow Brace State-of-the-Art Fabrication
Your dog’s elbow brace is manufactured in our state-of-the-art manufacturing center through a digitizing process of the fiberglass impression. The impression is turned into a 3D model that is digitally sculpted to create your dog’s elbow brace shape. The carved model is vacuum formed with advanced plastics to create the custom made brace. Once the soft medical grade foam liner, adjustable and replaceable straps and pads are added, the device is ready for delivery. The standard fabrication time to build an orthosis is 5-7 business days.
