Malpositions in the fetlock joint are known as toed-in and toed-out positions.
The DALRIC Extension Shoe corrects such twisted or kinked joints.
Effect and application
DALRIC Extension Shoesare equipped with a one-sided extension of the hoofshoe’s foot surface. This extension must be fitted on the opposite side of the direction of toeing or rotation, meaning: In case of a toed-out position with outer rotation, the extension must be fitted on the inside, and vice versa.
The weight-bearing region of the sole is displaced, and the hoof adjusts to a new center of gravity.
