Vital Tips: There are many soft, neoprene leg braces on the market and it can be hard to choose. When choosing a neoprene brace, think about what your pet needs. Does your pet need light support and protection or something more heavy-duty? Will your pet fit into a standard size brace or is the brace able to be trimmed to fit better? And when choosing a brace, look for these features:
- How thick is the neoprene material? Neoprene braces usually run from 1.5mm (ultralight) to 5.0mm+ (heavy-duty). The thicker the material the more supportive/stabilizing the brace will be. Remember - the more stabilizing the brace, the less flexible the brace (and joint) will be.
- How many outer cinching straps and how wide are they? The more straps, the more support and security. The wider the cinching straps, the less pressure points on the leg and the more supportive.
- Does the brace have metal supports or springs? Metal supports or springs provide more stability. Springs allow the joint to move while metal supports freeze the joint in place.
- Is the brace able to be trimmed for a better fit? Neoprene material does not fray so it can be trimmed to provide a better fit. But if there's stitching, the brace cannot be trimmed. The better the fit, the better the brace will do its job for the pet.
Features of the NeoAlly Brace:
* not sure of the thickness of material but it has metal springs (removable) so it's very supportive but flexible * 2-3 cinching straps (this brace is a little shorter than others) * cannot be trimmed * we noted the photo shows the brace is applied too high on the leg to be effective for wrist support - for better wrist support, the brace should sit just above the paw (ask your vet for assistance)
