The Ortocanis knee immobilizer stabilizes the articulation of the dog.
Specifically designed for those cases that require a parcial immobilization, such as patella luxation, ACL, ligament injury and pre and postoperatative treatment.
The Ortocanis knee immobilizer should be placed without forcing the joint, opening the lower adjustment and sliding the orthosis gently until it reaches the groin.
Frequently check the most sensitive areas in the first few days to detect if there is skin rubbing.
When choosing the size, measure the upper circumference (A) of the highest part of the leg. Wrap a measuring tape around the thigh above the knee and near the groin. In the table below find the size that corresponds to the measurement.
If in doubt between two sizes, select the bigger one.
