Case studies and articles
#1: BEHAVIORAL MATERIAL AND STRUCTURAL COMPARISON OF THE TRADITIONAL IRON HORSESHOE WITH THE INNOVATIVE COPPER ALLOY HORSESHOE
Six horses were selected at random, to be shod o n their right limbs with iron and on their left limbs with copper alloy and the other six copies in the reverse arrangement. As a result, it was obtained that the copper alloy horseshoe transmits a lower impact force (8.56%) compared to the iron horseshoe.
#2: PRESENTATION ABOUT THE BEHAVIORAL MATERIAL AND STRUCTURAL COMPARISON OF THE TRADITIONAL IRON HORSESHOE WITH THE INNOVATIVE COPPER ALLOY HORSESHOE
This presentation breaks down the properties and benefits of a copper alloy horseshoe, biomechanics of the hoof, structural study, material behavior, and more.
#3: STUDY OF THE ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF COPPER HORSESHOES IN THE INFECTIOUS PATHOLOGY OF THE HORSE.
20 samples of hoofs of horses shod with Iron (100%) and 20 of horses shod with Copper (100%) and copper/zinc alloy ( 85/15%) were obtained. The microbiological results showed a significantly lower microbial presence in the hooves of horses shod with copper (pure or in alloy) compared to horses shod with iron.
#4: SHAPING THE FOOT OF A HORSE
This study aims to comparatively quantify the structural effect produced by the use of a horseshoe. The results of this model will make it possible to define which of the two horseshoes has a better performance from a purely structural point of view.
#5: INNOVATIVE HARDWARE WITH COPPER ALLOY
Copper alloy horseshoes are completely adaptable to the condition of special hardware or to orthopedic use, by arc welding with electrodes for copper or with oxygen, thus being able to be transformed to all the models required to correct conformation problems, therapeutic management or adapt to the function of the horse.
