Bonapartix L Front
Reverse shoe. Wide rear bearing surface & maximal rolling.
Designed by Professor Jean-Marie Denoix, DVM, PhD director of the CIRALE (Normandy, France).
Reverse shoe also called “Napoléon shoe” in France. Rear support beyond the heels and the frog. Open toe. Front shape. Designed in high-tech aluminium alloy. Non-tempered alloy: hot work possible up to 450 °C. 2 quarter clips. Thickness 10 mm. Coverage and weight in size 1: 35 mm for the rear support and 25 mm on the rest of the shoe. 230 g.
CONCEPT AND REACTION ON THE GROUND :
Wide rear surface to increase support and to limit sinking of the heels into penetrable and compacted ground. Bevelled outer rim at the rear part of the shoe to reduce rear leverage. Open toe and bevelled ends of branches to promote maximum rolling. Bevel on toe quarters to limit collateromotion and rotation during propulsion in turn.
BIOMECHANICAL AND KINETHERAPEUTIC EFFECTS :
Reduces stress on the distal sesamoid bone and on the deep digital flexor tendon. Reduces general stress on the podotrochlear apparatus and interphalangeal joint mechanics.
Podotrochlear syndrome grade 3. Pathology of the deep digital flexor tendon and accessory ligament (distal check ligament).
