Canine Limb / Animal Prosthetics

Canine Limb
Canine Limb

Canine Limb is a flexible animal prosthesis designed for physically handicapped dogs. The core structure is a special elastic plate that connects the upper thigh to the lower leg, which maximizes the force variation of the original dog leg during exercise. In the process of dog movement, the special elastic plate undergoes corresponding deformation when subjected to pressure of different angles, directions and sizes, so as to control the change state of the thigh part and the calf part of the Canine Limb , thereby realizing the purpose of simulating and replacing the muscle.
