Carpo Active & Protect / Sports Brace
from 45.00 €
- prophylaxis during sports, work-out/ training, play activities
- to protect carpal joint, ligaments and tendons, thumb and pad
- can be used for slightly strained ligaments, traumata and arthrosis
- Carpo Active & Protect is made from high-quality neoprene (made in Germany) which offers top characteristics and maximum comfort
- The middle belt can be placed individually and thus perfectly considers the animal’s respective anatomy
- For a stronger stabilization of the joints, flexible spring rods can be put into the side pockets if needed.
If a hyperextension of the carpal joint is diagnosed, this brace should not be used as it causes excoriation of the carpal pad and the backside joint. In this case, I highly recommend TheraLock DYNAMIC to prevent a worsening of the given hyperextension.
For a beginning or middle hyperextension I recommend an orthosis/ brace that I have especially designed for this problem. The joint remains flexible but stops in normal physiological position.

- good protection against aging
- tear- and abrasion-proof
- highly elastic and shock resistant
