WHAT IS IT FOR?
Knee-joint conditions to the ligaments require effective solutions: BT Jump knee brace is the perfect answer.
It is a brace designed for cases of cruciate ligament, luxation of the patella, knee joint conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis, varus and valgus. It can be used both as an alternative to surgery, and in post-surgery. BT JUMP has two pockets, which contain two angled splints that restrict the movement of the knee when necessary. An abdominal band ensures the brace is well secured around the dog.
The brace can also be used without splints for conditions such as arthritis and arthrosis. This is because the compression it provides increases the blood pressure in the area, thus raising the temperature and reducing the pain caused by the conditions.
Ensuring the stability of the affected part often means aiding recovery. Two angled lateral splints in aluminium inserted into special pockets restrict movement, as required, controlling the area that needs to be held still, while the abdominal belt keeps the support in place, making sure it does not slip down or rotate.
- The brace can be used in pre- and post-surgery.
- Breathable fabric.
- Excellent wearability.
- Hand washable.
- Shortenable bandages.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
- During the period of restraint, it is advisable not to leave the dog alone for too long, because it might try to remove the brace by biting or scratching it.
- Additionally, it may take up to two weeks for your pet to “adopt” the brace. Unless advised otherwise by your veterinarian, we advise placing the brace on your pet for 30 minutes the first day then increasing wear time by 30 minutes each day after. Use treats to reward the pet once the brace is on and to encourage them to walk with it. The brace can be worn up to 8 hours per day with 1h break after 4hrs of wearing the brace. Remove the brace at night.
