Knee/Stifle Conditions

CONDITIONS:

  • Post-operative management of the leg (minus TPLO)
  • Contralateral (opposite) limb management post-operatively
  • Partial tears - average amount of time needed to wear the device (depending on tear) is 6 months to fully stabilize
  • Patellar Luxation –Secondary to use for CCL injuries, BUT are an important application
    • Cannot directly control the patella, since it is such a small bone
      • An effective method to reduce Patellar Luxation (sideways movement) is to limit ROM where the Luxation occurs
      • Luxation usually occurs in deep flexion or full extension
      • Stifle braces reduce the sideways movement, helping the patella to stay in place
  • Contracture Management - using Ultraflex joints, management of flexion OR extension contractures
  • Distal femoral or proximal tibia/fibula fractures, as an alternative to splinting
  • Contracture Option:
    • Used for Contracture Management using an Ultraflex joint or other means to stretch the ligaments to get to a more functional position
Tarsal/Ankle Conditions

Conditions:

  • Primarily used post-operatively from Achilles Tendon repair instead of using an external fixation device which requires drilling into perfectly good bone
  • Two versions: with and without Paw Support Segment
    1. With Paw Segment – Recommended to be added, can always be removed but CANNOT be added later
      • Excellent at evenly distributing pressure
      • Gives more control over the leg with the issue when cat is knuckling
      • Knuckling is common because the superficial digital flexor tendon frequently overrides the injured Achilles tendon
    2. Without Paw Segment - This is advantageous as most cats like to feel their paw hit the ground.
      • Indicated when cat is not knuckling, has a bilateral diagnosis or is very active
  • Contracture Option:
    • Used for Carpal Contracture Management using an Ultraflex joint or other means to stretch the Carpal Flexor Ligaments to get to a more functional position.
Carpal/Wrist Conditions

Conditions:

  • The most common diagnosis when using this brace is Carpal Hyperextension
  • Also used for Angular Deformities of the front leg
    • Carpal Varus – Joint bowed outward
    • Carpal Valgus – Joint bowed inward
  • Also provides support with Radial Nerve Paralysis or Brachial Plexus Avulsions (Tears) Diagnoses
  • Braces also used for Carpal Contracture Management using an Ultraflex joint or other means to stretch the Carpal Flexor Ligaments to get to a more functional position
  • Depending on Diagnosis, braces are made with or without the paw segment, determined case by case
  • Contracture Option:
    • Used for Carpal Contracture Management using an Ultraflex joint or other means to stretch the Carpal Flexor Ligaments to get to a more functional position
