Research, Industrial Design, Engineering Development, Usability Engineering, Manufacturing Transfer

FastTrack™ is the World's 1st Rehabilitative Legwear for Horses. The device contains a patented adjustable range of motion stop that limits the maximum permissible angle of the horse’s fetlock joint, thereby significantly reducing strain to the injured tendons and preventing re-injury. The device incorporates heat formable padding that allows for a customized fit for each individual horse, providing maximal comfort and support.

MANTA was responsible for the industrial design, mechanical engineering, usability engineering and manufacturing transfer of the FastTrack device. Working closely with consulting veterinary professionals, Manta supported the upfront device related bio-mechanical research and testing activities, and then took responsibility for the product’s detail design, prototyping, testing and transfer to outside manufacturing partners, as well as for overall project management.
