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.

Desde el primer momento que se lo hemos puesto hemos notado mejoría, pero no sé si a largo plazo se le corregirá o sólo cuando lo lleve puesto .

Todavía está en periodo de adaptación. Mi perra tuvo un embolismo fibrocartilaginoso y perdió la movilidad y sensibidad de las patas traseras. Le falta recuperar la propiocepcion de la pata izquierda y este corrector le está ayudando, aunque de momento lo lleva solo unos minutos al día.
