Being an amputee myself I have empathy for our furry friends with bone & muscle problems. The FUNCTION of our innovative devices makes me the proudest. If a dog brace does not have correct biomechanical function, it is nothing more than a hood ornament…It looks good but does absolutely nothing to get “Spike” from A to B.

Working with animals has been a breath of fresh air! We began our journey with animals in 2005 working with Dr. Robert Taylor at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital of Animal Planet's "Emergency Vets" fame. We have redesigned and advanced many bracing techniques in the animal world since that time. Our innovative dog braces are a result of many hours of research AND fun with our furry friends.
In August of 2008, we had the honor of being asked to speak at a breakfast session at the 5th International Symposium on Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy in Veterinary Medicine in Minneapolis, Minnesota about small animal prosthetics and orthotics. Since that engagement, we have started working with leading animal rehab professionals around the country to advance animal rehabilitation’s orthotic/prosthetic niche.
We have only begun innovating in this new field. You will be excited to see what we unveil next and next and next! Please join us for the ride.
