What Makes the SureFit® Calculator the Best Choice?

SureFit® Guarantee: we guarantee the perfect size, or we’ll pay your return shipping costs if an exchange is needed. That way there’s no doubt your pet will get the perfect fit.

We highly recommend using our SureFit® Calculator as it ensures the perfect custom fit for your pet. It requires a couple measurements, but only so we can provide your pet with the very best experience.

We recognize this takes a few minutes of your time, but those minutes are worth the happiness your pet will experience once they try out their wheelchair for the first time. Our wheelchairs have already helped more than 81,000 other pets. Let’s make that 81,001!

Other companies simply have you select a wheelchair based on weight, but that often results in a poor fit. Why? A 30 lb bulldog has a very different body type from a 30 lb corgi, but those companies will provide both with the same wheelchair.

Professional Use

Professionals Guide to the Wrist Hugger

The Walkin’ Wrist Hugger fits the natural angle of the carpal joint, supporting above and below the carpal joint.  The neoprene material allows the pet to move easily and without strain on the joint.  Fabric wraps above and below the carpal joint to provide support for the carpal joint and surrounding structures.  Our splint foam inserts may also be added to the Wrist Hugger to customize the support level and provide more stabilization for pets suffering from carpal hyperextension injuries.

Here are a few suggestions on how it may be used by professionals:

  • For those patients suffering from carpal joint or ligament injuries
  • Able to make custom supports by adding our splint foam inserts directly to the wrist hugger.
    • For Carpal Hyperextension cases, rectangular foam pieces may be added to the caudal aspect of Walkin’ Wrist Hugger to further support carpal joint from hyperextending.  Foam may be stacked on top of each other until desired support is reached. It’s best to purchase a size up when planning on adding foam for custom fit.  The Wrist Hugger can be cut down in length if needed but the larger size will allow correct closure with the addition of foam.
    • For more support to medial or lateral aspect of the carpal joint due to ligament instabilities or after surgery, use rectangular foam pieces and adhere to medial or lateral aspect of Wrist Hugger accordingly.
  • Use for encouragement of pet to pick up a limb during rehab exercises.
  • To be used by pet owners at home for encouragement of a limb during home exercises.
