To restore the hoof-balance by enlarging the weight bearing area
The PM Hoof Pad Wedge shows like the PM Hoof Pad Flat a tendon-supporting effect by its frog-shaped concavity – leading to a statics/balance improvement similar to the one of an closed-bar shoe (e.g. egg-bar shoe). Furthermore, it offers a much better pressure distribution on frog and sole.
The outstanding extra benefit of the PM Hoof Pad Wedge is the enlargement of the weight bearing area of the heels that results in an optimized weight and pressure distribution. For this, the PM Hoof Pad Wedge must be applied as shown in the figure. By lowering the heels, the weight-bearing area is substantially increased. Then the PM Hoof Pad Wedge fits in the space of the removed heel part and keeps a correct hoof-pastern axis. The left space between hoof and the PM Hoof Pad Wedge is filled with PM Hoof Packing Regular or Soft.
