The carpal brace is used for conditions involving lesions to the carpus, leading to pain, lameness, or difficulty in moving.

WHAT IS IT FOR?

When the health of the paw needs a hand, BT JOINT is there. It is used in pathologies that cause carpal inflammation that cause pain, lameness, difficulty in movement. It is an excellent protective for bandages and plasters in the treatment of surgical wounds or licking sores. Once the band has been placed around the dog’s leg, it is not necessary that the two white-trimmed edges meet, since the closure of the brace is by means of the blue straps and stabilization is provided by the splints on the back of the band.
 
 
 
Warning: BT JOINT is not a corrective brace, in case of carpal laxity, or ligament injuries that cause hyperextension or hyperflexion choose BT SPLINT. In cases of severe carpal hyperextension choose BT BONE.

The Circumference of the wrist ("Brace Length When Opened”) is the most important measurement to choose the size.
Please note that the "Brace Length When Opened” must cover 60% to 90% of the leg circumference as the brace does not need to cover the total circumference of the leg and it is better to avoid overlap

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE

 

During the period of restraint, it is advisable not to leave the dog alone for too long, because it might try to remove the band, by biting or scratching it.
Always remove the rigid splints before washing.
Once the brace has been placed around the dog’s leg, it is not necessary that the two white-trimmed edges meet, since the closure of the brace is by means of the blue straps and stabilization is provided by the splints on the back of the band, therefore you should not think that the band is small because it is not completely closed around the paw, the size if chosen based on the weight of the dog is correct.
  
Do not leave the brace on for an extended period of time: the brace must be worn during the day, especially during physical activity, and it should be removed at night.
