Dr. Denoix's Shoe with a lateral roll. This shoe has a strong bevel from the last nail hole continuing around to the opposite nail hole. The bevel reduces the diameter of surface contact; while the increased thickness raises the center of rotation. By reduction of the lever arm, both of these properties reduce the force needed to rotate the hoof capsule in any forward direction. Made from 1/2" thick aluminum.
The Lateral Roller may be beneficial in treating:
Osteoarthritis of the pastern joint
Osteoarthritis of the coffin joint
Bilateral collateral ligament injuries
Available in sizes 6-9.
