Clinical Solutions to Pet Problems
Wrist braces are used to correct symptoms such as limping, inability to bear weight and collapsing or hyper-extension at the wrist joint. Conditions such as Carpal Collapse, Knuckling or Paralysis, Joint Instability, Hyper-Extension, Arthrodesis, and Severe Strains can be addressed with a wrist or carpal brace. They are commonly applied to support or immobilize the joint for injuries to the paw, carpal and metacarpal areas. Wrist or carpal braces are usually used long-term for nerve damage or other chronic conditions but can also be used on a short-term basis for pre- or post-surgical applications. Based on the diagnosis, they can include various types of flexible or adjustable joints in order to allow or restrict motion at the antebraciocarpal or carpometacarpal joint axis.
These braces can be fabricated to include a front (anterior) and rear (posterior) shell (known as a "clamshell" design) for complete immobilization for a fracture or protection and support for an osteosarcoma, for example. This design allows for frequent cleaning and inspection of the affected area, a benefit not easily achievable with serial splinting and casting or bandaging.
Carpal or wrist braces are $849. Exact pricing will be determined as we learn the specifics of your pet's condition.
