Kimzey Hind Leg Saver Splints

The hind splint is formed to match the anatomy of a hind leg keeping it in a more natural position.  A removable spacer bar, made of 5/8″
aluminum bar, is located on the back of the hoof holder.  The spacer bar, when attached, provides seven degrees
of incline to relieve pressure at the injured area.

Note:  In most cases a front leg saver splint is used for a hind leg injury.  Look at the photo of Dakota below.  Is this the position you want the patient’s leg to be in, or does the patient need to be in a “tip-toe” position to relieve pressure from the back of the leg?  “Tip-toe” position requires a front leg saver splint even if it’s being placed on a hind leg.

Please let us know if you have a patient with an injured hind leg or other special need that we might be able to assist with.
