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.
Follow these instructions to select the size:
1. Take a sewing tape, or a tape measure and string.
2. Measure the contour of the leg at the groin level (if in doubt, check the indications in the product images).
3. Look at the size chart for the size that corresponds to the measurement taken.
4. If in doubt between two sizes, choose the larger one.
