The Balto® Flexor is carefully designed to stabilize severe lameness and neuromuscular problems. It is ideal for pet patients post-surgically or who need customized restriction of joint movement for conditions such as:

  • Tendinopathy of the common calcaneal tendon
  • Tendinopathy of the medial and lateral collateral ligament and long plantar ligament
  • Tarsus instability
  • Subluxation or dislocation of the tarsal joint
  • Reconstruction surgery that requires progressive rehabilitation of tarsal flexion-extension
  • Achilles tendon injury and/or rupture

The Balto Flexor can be used as an alternative to surgery if your dog is not eligible for other options, such as age or previous injuries. The brace is designed to constrain joint movement while allowing an adequate R.O.M., functioning as a rehabilitation support. The Balto Flexor is considered as a conservative treatment in case of ligament injuries, laxity, and neurological disorders, such as hyperflexion or hyperextension, and general tarsal joint instability.


  • width and length adjustable Velcro® straps
  • two sections of comfortable padding which can be lengthened or shortened on the leg, ensuring an excellent fit
  • adjustable range of motion
