KYOR

(Patent Pending)

MEDICAL BRACE to PREVENT POST-SURGICAL LICKING

The Kyor Brace is an alternative to the Elizabethan Collar (better known as the Cone of Shame). While it prevents the canine from licking its surgical wound, the E-Collar restricts the dog's movement, hearing, and vision. Its hard and plastic material is both uncomfortable to touch as it is to wear. 'Kyor', read as 'Cure', is made of a soft yet durable ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam; it is what children's puzzle-piece floor mats are made of.

Research shows that a mere 1.5-2" of material above the dog's shoulders and around their neck, is enough to restrict their head turning movement from reaching injuries on their chest, body, and tail. Kyor achieves this with a design that was inspired by neck braces that professional dirt bikers use as a sport standard.
