2150 Hind Asymmetric Shoe
ACR Hind Asymmetric Shoe
The ACR Hind Asymmetric Shoe is highly effective on soft ground; its wide branch reduces the foot's sinking into the ground on that side, whilst the narrow branch improves penetration on the other side.
It corrects asymmetrical footfall and limits extra sagittal movement (collateral motion). It protects the collateral ligaments on the wide side and avoids the risk of lesions. It provides relief to subchondral bone on the narrow side. But remember, it increases tendon loading and intra-articular pressure on the side opposite the wide branch.
INDICATIONS : For hoof defects, the wide branch is placed on the overloaded side (the side where the hoof wall tends to be straight; on the inside of a turned-out (splayed) foot, on the outside of a turned-in (pigeon-toed foot).
