Innovative Biomechanics of Our Dog Ankle (Tarsus) Braces
The canine ankle (tarsus) is a unique joint susceptible to injury and instability. Tarsal plantigrade collapse, tarsal valgus, tarsal varus, post-op arthrodesis, and neurological presentations are common orthopedic injuries that can affect your pet’s ankle joint and cause pain and lameness. The OrthoPets Tarsus Brace stabilizes your dog’s ankle joint by creating a 3-Point Corrective System. This advanced biomechanical support system stabilizes your dog’s tarsus joint by applying a corrective force location supporting the tarsus joint and two counter force locations that complete the dynamic mechanical environment acting within the OrthoPets Tarsus Brace system.

Dog Ankle (Tarsus) Brace State-of-the-Art Fabrication
Your dog’s ankle 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 tarsus 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.

Unmatched support and comfort

The aerospace-grade shell is engineered to support your pet’s active lifestyle at a remarkably light weight.

The premium foam liner provides soft cushioning, and it’s replaceable for additional longevity.
