The future in treating
lameness in cows


CowMotion was developed in collaboration with veterinarians as a animal-friendly orthosis
to create a new standard in the treatment of claw disorders.

CowMotion is precisely tailored to the biomechanics of the claw to support and maintain the natural movement.

Due to the material used and the special structure, CowMotion prevents incorrect loading, which minimizes the risk of secondary diseases.

CowMotion supports the healthy claw by absorbing the entire weight load of a limb and distributes the pressure evenly.

CowMotion enables the best possible orthopedic relief for diseased claws without risk to the healthy claw. It relieves pain and ensures lasting healing.

Biomechanical needs

For anatomical reasons, there is a great pressure load on the carrying edge of the claw. From there, the power is transmitted to the wall and the hoof-leg carrier to the toe bones. CowMotion ensures a load on the supporting edge or even pressure distribution on the sole and thus prevents local pressure peaks. For this purpose, the orthosis was designed to be significantly more stable on the outer edge than in the area of the sole.

The pressure and pressure distribution measurements carried out at the Veterinary Anatomical Institute of the University of Leipzig show the biomechanical advantages of CowMotion. Better pressure distribution and fewer pressure peaks reduce the risk of acute or chronic damage to the claw.

CowMotion vs. Claw Block

Previous claw block systems did not do justice to either the cattle anatomy or the biomechanics of the hoof. This often leads to further serious health problems for the animal and increases the economic risk for the owner.

Compared to conventional wooden blocks or claw block systems, CowMotion achieves a stepping surface that is at least 50% larger under load. The orthosis generates a significantly lower pressure load and offers a better pressure distribution on the sole of the claw.

Innovative construction

CowMotion is made up of two different layers. These ensure optimal transmission to the load-bearing parts of the claw and protect the anatomically sensitive areas. Thanks to the flexible material, the orthosis can be quickly and precisely adapted to any cattle claw.

Support layer

The support layer forms the foundation for a secure footing. The material is non-slip and robust to ensure long-term wear. In addition, the support layer embeds the cushioning layer and provides sufficient stability to transfer the force to the hoof-leg support.

Damping layer

Every part of the damping layer has individual degrees of hardness in order to achieve the best possible absorption of force and the greatest possible damping. This protects sensitive regions and provides ideal support for the ball of the foot. It ensures that even animals that are already ill can wear CowMotion without any problems.


In direct contact with living tissue, the material used has no negative impact on the animal and its metabolism.

Therapeutic approach

CowMotion has been developed to provide the best possible therapy for lame cattle and promote the willingness of lame cows to walk The orthosis is based on the physiology, anatomy and kinetics of the bovine claw. It maintains the natural rolling movement, and heals without consequential damage. CowMotion reduces the additional pressure that occurs, shortens the treatment and application time and enables animal-friendly long-term therapy.

Simple application

CowMotion can be quickly and easily attached to the bovine claw and adjusted. The time in the hoof stand is shortened and reduces the stress factor for the animal. For the farmer, veterinarian and hoof trimmer, this means more efficiency and more relaxed work.
