Stifle (Knee) Braces

Custom stifle braces can be used post operatively following a ligament repair or when your pet is not a surgical candidate. Varus/vlagus deformities, partial ligament tears and/or a luxating patella can be accommodated with use of a custom stifle brace.

Tamarack joints can be used to offload the stifle by mimicking the actions of a healthy ligament. Fractures can be set with a solid stifle design or can be used for long-term use to aid with non-unions.

Ultraflex joints can be used to increase range of motion where a contracture is present. A range of motion joint can also be used to set a desired range or to statically progressively aid in contracture management.

Carpal / Tarsal Braces

Carpal collapse otherwise known as carpal hyperextension is the most common diagnosis seen for use of a custom carpal brace. Solid posterior shell designs are used for mild to moderate control, while bivalve (clam shell) designs can be used for maximal support or for fracture management.

Tamarack joints can be used to reduce hyperextension, while allowing range to assist in a more normalized gait pattern.

Range of motion joints are used for more active pets to allow full range of motion and only limit hyperextension. We also provide a wide range of custom tarsal supports and paw protectors for various conditions.

A range of motion joint can also be used to set a desired range or to statically progressively aid in contracture management.

ANASTASIYA KARPENKO

Dear Derrick and all the Animal Ortho care Team!!

we are so happy!!! Look at the pictures attached! Timur wears his new prosthetics and he runs!! I was so worried that we would have to wait for weeks till the time he would get used to them, but he almost ran at the moment he tried his “new paws”!!!

These are the first prosthetics for dogs in Ukraine as far as I know and Timur is the happy owner!
all of our volunteers who are engaged in Timur’s story are extremely grateful and happy!

THANK YOU THOUSAND TIMES!!!

and we are on tiptoe with curiosity to know who is the Timur’s “guardian angel” that have paid for the prosthetics!
Please let me know who else did contact you regarding Timur!

PS all the money collected for Timur’s prosthetics wil be transferred to one of the dogs invalids who need urgent help

THANK YOU!!!

Lynn, Bill and Bear Talbot

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEAR’S BRACE!

LYNN, BILL AND BEAR TALBOT

He has taken to it very well.  In fact, the first time he had it on he went straight over to his frisbee wanting to play!  Of course we can’t do that, but we we’re thrilled that he thought he could!  It’s been a long time since he played.

Please take a look at the pictures attached and let us know if the position of the brace look good.  It looks good to us and Bear seems to be fine with it.  We are so relieved to have some stability for his leg.  We will increase the time he wears it every day per your instructions and are looking forward to Bear getting the maximum benefit from the brace!

Thank you again!

ARGYLE

NANCY LINZ

Dear Mr. Campana,

In January, you made a wonderful orthotic for my 12-year-old Shetland Sheepdog, Argyle (pictures attached).

About 1.5 years ago, Argyle was running on the beach in Florida and stepped in a hole. As he fell, he cracked two bones in this front left leg and tore various ligaments. It all happened in just seconds, and changed his life forever.

After 14 months of two failed surgeries and many, many splints and assorted bandages, we decided to try one of your orthotics (we call it his boot). Every morning we put on his boot, and every night after he heads outside for the last time, we take it off. It has made an amazing difference in his life. Argyle loves his boot. In the morning I tell him it’s time to put on his boot, and he lies down and holds up his front leg for me. As soon as I put it on, he jumps up and runs to the door to go outside. It has made an amazing difference in his quality of life. Thank you!!!

HE IS DOING WONDERFULLY WITH HIS PROSTHETIC RIGHT REAR LEG!

JEFF MYHRE

Sir,

Wanted to send you some pictures and update you on Yogi’s progress. He is doing wonderfully with his prosthetic right rear leg! He now is able to go for walks each day with his brother, and has gotten into a very good comfortable gait…..you cant tell he has a prosthetic watching him walk. He is up to about 8+ hours a day of wear and doesnt chew or mess with it, it appears he is very comfortable with it.
