- The foot surface is seated out beneath the peripheral distal border of PIII to help insure clearance for those patients that have rotated and the sole is close to coming in contact with the ground. In cases where P3 has prolapsed or penetrated the sole, hoof wall extensions and a large cushion support area are used with the Clog to insure protection for P3 and the prolapsed area of the sole.
- The Clog can be attached to the foot using a variety of methods. (eg. nailing, screwing and/or gluing.)
- The ground surface is smaller and tapers more aggressively on the anterior and posterior ends. There is less taper on the medial and lateral sides. The ground surface is smaller than the actual hoof size to help reduce the leverage and forces on the lamina and joints when in motion.
- Once attached, adjustments for leverage (anterior as well as medial & lateral) and mobility comfort are easy to make using a rasp and/or EDSS Wedge Rails. All adjustments for comfort can be made several times throughout the shoeing period.
- Placement of the Clog is very important, so application instructions and placement layout guidelines are included with the Clog.
