CARPO-FLEX SPORTS WRAP
LIGHT, FLEXIBLE SUPPORT FOR FRONT LEG/WRIST
$42 – $49 [sold individually (1)]
Provides light stability for the carpus
Ideal for pets with mild wrist arthritis, strains, sprains, deviations, weakness
Proactive protection for high-energy/active pets (e.g., agility, field trial)
Protects against re-injury
Reduces pain (e.g., arthritic carpal joints)
Light, flexible support/protection for the front leg/wrist.
Helps to support the wrist joint and relieve pain associated with:
degenerative joint disease
ligament strains and sprains
Can be used as a transitional support after cast or splint removal
For dogs that need more support and less mobility at the wrist, you may consider the Carpo-Flex X.
Carpo-Flex Sports Wrap is made of washable, easy-to-care-for materials. Wrap can be trimmed for a more customized fit. Includes nylon support straps to provide stability where it is needed most. Additional stability straps can be purchased for pets with more severe or painful wrist problems. Foam padding can also be added inside the Carpo-Flex Sports Wrap for added comfort (see Slideshow at bottom of page).
If planning on leaving the Carpo-Flex Sports Wrap on your pet throughout the day, you may want to consider applying anti-chafing powder inside the brace to help absorb moisture and add a layer of protection to the leg.
Carpo-Flex Sports Wraps should fit snugly around the wrist. The bottom portion should sit just above the paw, almost grazing the ground in the back when the dog is standing. If the bottom back tab is too long, it can be trimmed with scissors.
STEP 1. Use a measuring tape or piece of string to measure around your dog's ankle/wrist area. [see figure A]
STEP 2. Measure the distance from the back of your dog's paw-pad (or the floor) to about half way up your dog's leg. [See figure B]
