Biko Physio Brace for CDRM in Dogs

 

The Biko physio brace is a rehabilitation product that helps prevent muscle wastage due to immobility, mostly in cases of CDRM. 

Degenerative myelopathy (CDRM) is not uncommon, particularly in the German Shepherd, Boxer and Pembroke Corgi.

It is a difficult condition to manage either medically or surgically.

Whilst the progression of the degeneration can be delayed by dietary supplements, treatment options are very limited.

The Biko physio brace has been developed to assist the dog in walking and turning for as long as possible.

This brace comes in 7 sizes - Once you have placed the order we will call you to insure selecting the correct size.

This brace is fitted to a standard dog harness with a D ring. If you need a harness please select the option below, or select No Harness if you already have one.

The Biko PR Bands are straight forward devices. The elastic resistance bands clip to the D ring of a standard (Roman) harness, and are attached to a padded Velcro cuff that fits just below the ankle (hock) joint.

The bands stretch slightly as the dog walks and assists the forward movement of the feet, also protecting and preventing the feet from knuckling under. This is very helpful for dogs with poor muscle strength, or nerve disorders that prevent proper foot placement. As the right foot moves forward, the resistance that develops in the left Biko PR Band prevents the left foot from slipping sideways or backwards, and the process is repeated on the other side as the dog walks.

The Biko PR Bands Individual Kit contains three (3) sets of Biko Progressive Resistance Bands (the bands included are customized to each individual patient/condition), one set of extenders, and one pair of cuffs.

Your dog will get used to wearing the bands quickly. After about five (5) weeks of gradually increasing the daily walking time, your dog will move up to a higher resistance level for further conditioning and muscle strengthening. If your dog suffers from degenerative myelopathy, the protocol may be slightly different. Click here to see the video
