Jabu is one of two elephants cared for by the Living With Elephants Foundation. Living With Elephants Foundation (LWE) is Botswana based nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for rescued African Elephants in the sanctuary of the Okavango Delta, Botswana. 

PDS has made Jabu a protective cover for is Leg Brace and two Leg Wraps to protect his right leg from abrasion by the left leg scuffing against it as he walks. The most recent shipped to Jabu the first week in July.

Jabu has been struggling with an injury to his front right leg carpus (or wrist joint) sustained in an altercation with an aggressive wild bull elephant about 18 months ago. The joint has since suffered reinjury twice. The most recent and most serious being in May of last year, when the ground gave way under Jabu while he was walking through a flood plain, and leading to noticeable angulation of the right limb.

About Us

Phoenix Design Solutions' owner and founder, Schön Gross, has dedicated the past 18 years of her life to coming up with real solutions for animals that are injured, require unique bandaging or covery solutions and recovering from surgery. She has become a part of the family for a lot of people because she often develops solutions for situations that are dire for a pet and their owner. Schön has a long, successful career in product design, and her passion for animals lead her to create her first solution for her Rottweiler, Greif, in 1999. At the time, she had no idea that she was starting a new company. Greif needed bandaging for his elbows, a protective covering his hygroma, and Schön created it on the same day of his diagnosis.

The solution was effective, comfortable, and well tolerated. The initial design and subsequent redesigns have been used to treat thousands of canines and other species that have been diagnosed with hygroma, decubital ulcers, arthritis, and elbow dysplasia. Today, over 90,000 pairs have worldwide! Greif's original elbow protection solution still hangs in Schön's workroom as an inspiration for each new challenge that she is asked to design.

First: solve coverage and bandaging design challenges for animals—not just dogs. We want to help any animal whose owner/caretaker contacted us with a need.
Second: bring the knowledge of our products into the veterinary university teaching programs, making them a part of the curriculum and textbooks.
Third: the products must be financially accessible for all.
