Proprioceptive Corrector

This foot sling has been developed to assist dogs who drag their paws when walking due to a sciatic nerve problem. The sling prevents knuckling by supporting the paw's 2 middle toes, and is attached via a tightened elastic adjustable cord with a strap wrapped around the hock.

Dogs with the ability to bear weight on the limb (i.e. hock, stifle, and hip
extension) are candidates for the foot sling; these dogs have diminished conscious
proprioception or loss of digital extensor function causing toe dragging and knuckling. The tension generated by the aid encourages the dog to walk properly and prevents it from dragging the dorsal part of the foot. 

The sling should not be left on overnight and is not recommended to be used for more than 2 continuous hours without a break. Check every 15 minutes on the start sessions. 

Indicated for use in:

  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Spinal trauma
  • Intervertebral Disk Disease
  • Neoplasia
  • Fibrocartilagenous Embolus

The foot sling has two different configurations:

  • DAILY USE: Connect the end of the elastic cord to the tip of the corrective boot for the sciatic nerve (optional, not included). The boot is indicated for sessions longer than 15 minutes.
  • REHABILITATION SESSIONS: with one hand supporting the paw, place the neoprene section under 3rd and 4th phalanx, then pull the cord to give the desired amount of tension. Intended for sessions shorter than 15 minutes.

 

To choose the correct size, measure the circumference (perimeter) above your dog's hock.

XXS5 - 7 cm
XS7 - 9 cm

el producto me parece excesivamente caro por lo que es. Se puede mejorar el diseño, es bastante dificil de colocar.

Fantastic, this sling has given my Labrador a new lease of life. He is much happier walking just with the sling (our walks are 10 to 15mn max) than with booties. I am considering buying a second one for his other paw which has started knuckling too.

Buen producto, calidad muy buena. A mi perro le ha ido bien para reconducir la posición de la pata que arrastra por cauda equina. Los velcros de sujección no se sueltan y es fácil colocarlo ya que encaja muy bien en la forma de la pata. Muy bien, no puedo decir nada negativo.
