Ice-Vibe Knee Wrap
Ice-Vibe has developed Ice-Vibe Knee: boots that wrap around the knee similar to a human knee support.
ICE-VIBE KNEE WRAP
Many horses suffer from knee problems as a result of bad confirmation, competition or just old age. Treating knees can be both expensive and unsuccessful.
They have a removable cold pack that Velcros on to the top of the wrap to prevent it slipping, while the massage panel sits at the front of the knee.
The cold pack can be heated in warm water to combine heat and massage before exercise to help reduce stiffness. ICE-VIBE knee are wireless, rechargeable, easy to use and portable. They are sold in pairs and we recommend treating both legs even if only one leg is injured.
TREATMENT: ICE-VIBE Hock used with cold packs can minimise inflammation while maintaining blood flow. This can help improve healing on: Ligament Injuries, Sprains & Bruising, Arthritis and Curbs
REPAIR: ICE-VIBE Hock used without cold packs can help to boost blood supply to your horse's legs by simulating exercise. This can help to: Remove toxins, Bring oxygen to horses' legs, Strengthen tissue, and Minimise scar tissue
RECOVERY: After exercise you can combine cold and massage therapy to help reduce inflammation without making the hock too cold which would compromise healing.
The ICE-VIBE Hock are designed to help reduce soreness and swelling in horses' hocks while stimulating healing through massage.
Always use with cold packs when swelling or heat is present. Avoid using on infections. If using to treat arthritis, warm the packs and combine these with massage before exercise, use cold packs and massage after exercise daily. Setting 2 is the main daily setting. We recommend treating both legs at the same time even if only one leg is injured.
