Incrediwear Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages fit comfortably around the horse's leg and are created to help prevent injury, accelerate recovery time and improve performance. Secured with a reliable Velcro strip.
- Injury recovery;
- Instant icing (when wet).
- Reduced swelling and inflammation;
- Reduced soreness and muscle fatigue;
- Increased blood circulation;
- Increased lymphatic drainage;
- Accelerated recovery time;
- Cooling legs.
Since not based on compression, can be used for extended periods of time.
Cold therapy – Simply wet Circulation Exercise Bandages with regular water for instant icing effect. Cold therapy effectiveness will remain for 45 min up to 1 hour to reduce swelling. For more dramatic icing effect, hot water can be used - place Exercise Bandages in hot water for 2 minutes, rinse excess water, wait a minute for bandage to cool down a bit and apply.
Some conditions amenable to treatment with Incrediwear Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages:
Tendinitis/Suspensory Desmitis - Both of these conditions can include inflammation, injury and/or degeneration of the tendon/ligament, usually involving the matrix to some degree. Incrediwear Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages worn for at least an hour before work has shown efficacy at reducing the pathologic swelling that may limit the normal function of the tendon/ligament and may lead to weakness in the structure. During the acute phases (pain on palpation of the affected area), it is beneficial to wear the Incrediwear Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages wet for at least an hour/day as ice bandages. In chronic cases, it may be beneficial to work the horse in dry Incrediwear Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages. Incrediwear Equine Circulation Standing Wraps can be used around the clock while in the stall.
Inferior Check Ligament Desmitis - This is a condition often associated with painful inflammation and possible adhesion formation between the inferior check ligament (ICL) and either the superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) or the deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT). Incrediwear Equine Circulation Standing Wraps or Circulation Exercise Bandages can be worn around the clock to reduce inflammation and prevent or treat adhesion formation, particularly as the horse is starting back to work.
Annular Ligament Desmitis/Wind Puffs - These conditions encompassing the fetlock region usually involve inflammation and possible adhesions in the case of the annular ligament. Incrediwear Equine Circulation Standing Wraps or Circulation Exercise Bandages can be worn around the clock to reduce inflammation and prevent or treat adhesion formation, particularly as the horse is starting back to work.
Bucked Shins/Splints - Both of these conditions involve inflammation of the bone and/or periosteum. Incrediwear Equine Standing Wraps or Circulation Exercise Bandages can be worn around the clock to reduce inflammation and promote bone remodeling. During the acute phases (pain on palpation of the affected area), it would be beneficial to wear the Incrediwear Equine Therapeutic wraps wet for at least an hour/day as ice bandages.
Green Osselots - This is a condition involving generalized inflammation of the fetlock joint of young racehorses, particularly at the joint capsule insertion to the cannon bone. Incrediwear Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages can be worn either wet or dry to reduce the inflammation in the acute phases.
Stocking up - This is a condition that most often affects the lymphatic drainage of the distal limb resulting in an accumulation of “pitting edema” within the subcutaneous tissues of the limb. Incrediwear Equine Circulation Standing Wraps can be worn around the clock or Equine Circulation Exercise Bandages can be applied for an hour before work or worn during exercise.
*In rare cases, a horse may become “overstimulated” by the increased blood flow and begin pawing or tearing at the bandages. In this case, the product should be removed, although it may be reapplied on a subsequent day or for a shorter period of time.
DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
1. Wear Circulation Exercise Bandages while working your horse.
2. Immediately following working your horse, wet exercise bandages and leave on for approximately 45 minutes up to 1 hour. Circulation Exercise Bandages act as an ice pack for 45 minutes up to 1 hour to decrease swelling.
3. Remove the Circulation Exercise Bandages and place the Incrediwear Equine Circulation Standing Wraps and/or Incrediwear Circulation Hoof Socks on for up to 24hrs (dry). Can be worn overnight (dry).
GENERAL GUIDELINES: Incrediwear is a novel “athletic” fabric that has been used in the human sports industry for over 6 years. Incrediwear is a germanium/carbon-embedded fiber that is activated when exposed to body heat, with negative ion release triggering 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 line of products focusing on the equine distal limb. Basically, when applied dry, the product will increase blood flow and promote lymphatic drainage. When applied wet, (particularly with warm or hot water) an endothermic reaction occurs, resulting in decreasing surface temperatures, eliciting an “ice bandage” effect. Implementing these general principles, the product can be applied dry before exercise to increase blood flow and wet following exercise for the “icing” effect. All applications should be under the supervision and/or advice of your veterinarian. If your veterinarian is not familiar with Incrediwear Equine, have them contact the office for more information.
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: Place in a pillow case or garment bag. Wash warm or cold up to 104F (40C). Tumble dry low. DO NOT bleach. DO NOT iron. DO NOT dry clean.
