Innovative Biomechanics of Our Dog Wrist (Carpus) Braces

The canine wrist (carpus) is a complex joint susceptible to injury and instability. Carpal hyperextension, carpus valgus, carpus varus, post-op arthrodesis, and neurological presentations are common orthopedic injuries that can affect your pet’s wrist joint and cause pain and lameness. The OrthoPets Carpus Brace stabilizes your dog’s wrist joint by creating a 3-Point Corrective System. This advanced biomechanical support system stabilizes your dogs carpus joint by applying a corrective force location supporting the carpus joint and two counter force locations that complete the dynamic mechanical environment acting within the OrthoPets Carpus Brace system.

Dog Wrist (Carpus) Brace State-of-the-Art Fabrication

Your dog’s wrist brace is manufactured in our state of the art manufacturing center through a digitalizing process of the fiberglass impression. The impression is turned into a 3D model that is digitally sculpted to create your dogs carpus 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.
