ICE-VIBE Circulation Therapy Horse Boots
ICE-VIBE Circulation Therapy Boots by Horseware Ireland are cold/hot therapeutic boots with the added benefit of massaging vibration to help increase circulation. Use vibration alone or in combination with cold or hot inserts. ICE-VIBE boots are ideal for preparing your horse for work, preventing injury, and rehabilitation.
- Use ICE-VIBE boots before you ride, using the vibration only to increase circulation to your horse's tendons and ligaments. This increases elasticity and helps reduce the chance of injury. The vibration works the same way exercise does to stimulate the lymph system, reducing existing inflammation.
- After working your horse, use the cold packs in conjunction with the vibration. This allows the tendons and tissues to cool down without restricting blood flow, letting oxygen reach tired, damaged tissue for quicker recovery. Using cold and massage therapy, ICE-VIBE boots treat both strains and damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The massaging vibration increases blood circulation as well as stimulating the lymph system, providing relief from soreness and swelling.
- For rehabilitation, the massaging vibration of the ICE-VIBE boots can help break down scar tissue and adhesions while providing increased blood flow to speed up healing. Using the warm packs can help make an older, arthritic horse more comfortable.
ICE-VIBE boots have 3 settings, providing the optimum level of vibration for different treatments. Use Level 1 for treatment of inflammation along with a cold pack, use Level 2 during rehabilitation, and use Level 3 to boost circulation. Each ICE-VIBE set contains: 2 ICE-VIBE tendon boots, 2 cold packs, 2 vibrating panels, 2 rechargeable batteries, 1 battery charger, 3 battery adapters (for universal use). It takes approximately 4 hours to recharge a depleted battery. ICE-VIBE Boots from Horseware are a wonderful therapeutic tool for your hardworking horse!
