Designed by Professor Jean-Marie Denoix, DVM, PhD director of the CIRALE (Normandy, France).
Asymmetric shoe: a wide branch with an onion heel and a narrow bevelled branch. Designed in high-tech aluminium alloy. Non-tempered alloy: hot work possible up to 450 °C. 2 clips. Thickness 10 mm. Coverage and weight in size 1: 38 mm on the onion heel. 30 to 28 mm for the wide branch. 28 mm on the toe. Narrow and bevelled branch: 25 mm foot side and 15 mm ground side. 195 g.
CONCEPT AND REACTION ON THE GROUND :
The wide branch and the onion heel provide support and limit sinking into penetrable and compacted ground. The narrow and bevelled branch improves sinking into penetrable ground. Bevelled outer rim on the toe and toe quarter opposite the lesion to promote rolling.
BIOMECHANICAL AND KINETHERAPEUTIC EFFECTS :
Depending on the application of the shoe (medial or lateral wide branch): re-balances the foot in case of lateral or medial overload. Re-balances the joints in case of deviation of the distal limb. Reduces tension on collateral ligaments.
Deviations of the distal limb: valgus or varus (medial wide branch if valgus or lateral wide branch if varus). Subchondral bone compression lesions (narrow branch on the side of the lesion to reduce pressure). Distal arthrosis of the hock or spavin (narrow branch on the side of the lesion to reduce pressure). Desmopathy of collateral ligaments (wide branch on the side of the lesion to reduce tension).
