Bonapartix S TR Front
Bonapartix S model adapted especially for trotters.
Designed by Professor Jean Marie Denoix, DVM, PhD director of the CIRALE (Normandy, France).
Trotter model. Reverse shoe also called “Napoléon shoe” in France. Rear support under the base of the frog. Open toe. For front or hind feet. Designed in high-tech aluminium alloy. Non-tempered alloy: hot work possible up to 450 °C. 2 quarter clips. Thickness 8 mm. Coverage and weight in size 1: 24 mm for the rear support (29 mm under the base of the frog) and 18 mm on the rest of the shoe. 116 g.
CONCEPT AND REACTION N 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 turns.
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).
