COMES WITH 2 BANDAGES
The Incrediwear Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages are designed to comfortably fit the horse's legs and are fastened with a Velcro strap. Circulatory Exercise Bandages are designed to prevent injuries, speed recovery time and improve performance. Wearing these daily leads to optimal results.
Wearable therapeutic dressing -
Wrap the horse's legs with circulation exercise bandages when training your horse to improve blood and lymph flow to the area. Because they do not form compression, they do not constrict or restrict blood flow by 'compressing' blood vessels.
This allows the product to be worn for a long time. For the night we recommend wearing the circulation standing wrap.
They can also be worn after exercise to reduce inflammation, aid recovery and prevent injury.
Cold Therapy - Just Wet Circulation Exercise Bandages, preferably with warm water (make sure it's not too hot enough to handle safely!), Ring off excess water.
The effectiveness of cold therapy lasts for up to 1 hour to reduce swelling. The bandage can be removed after the ice treatment, but if you want to reapply it you can simply re-wet it as directed and reapply.
General Guidelines: Incrediwear is a new FDA approved "athletic" fabric that has been used in the human sports industry for over 6 years.
The Techi Stuff ;-)
Incrediwear is a germanium / carbon embedded fiber that is activated when exposed to body heat, with the release of negative ions causing a mechanical increase in blood flow to the area, combined with increased lymphatic drainage from the area resulting in its unique properties. Incrediwear Equine has adapted these concepts into a new product line that focuses on the distal leg of the horse. Basically, when applied dry, the product increases bladder flow and aids lymphatic drainage. In wet application (particularly with warm or hot water) an endothermic reaction occurs, resulting in decreasing surface temperatures, generating an "ice bond" effect. Applying these general principles, the product can be applied dry before and during exercise to improve blood and lymph flow. Wet next exercise for the "icing" effect.
These products can be used in conjunction with other therapies, especially if recommended by your vet. If your vet is unfamiliar with Incrediwear Equine, have him contact the office for more information. Currently these products are used by the German veterinarian Dr. Jan Hein Swagermaker in his clinic in Germany.
