    Incrediwear Equine can be used to keep equines in healthy and optimum condition. 

    For other conditions please read the following:

    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 blow flow and promote lymphatic drainage.

    When applied wet, particularly with warm or hot water, an endothermic reaction results in decreasing surface temperatures, eliciting an “ice pack” 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.



    INCREDIWEAR EQUINE - CIRCULATION STANDING WRAPS 

     

    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 Therapeutic wraps worn for at least an hour before work have 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 Therapeutic wraps 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 Therapeutic wraps.

    Incrediwear Equine Circulation Standing Wraps can be used around the clock while in the stall/stable.

     

    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 Pillow or Therapeutic wraps 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 Pillow or Therapeutic wraps 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 Pillow or Therapeutic wraps 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 Therapeutic wraps 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 Pillow Wraps can be worn around the clock or Equine Therapeutic Wraps can be applied for an hour before work or worn during exercise.

    INCREDIWEAR EQUINE CIRCULATION SOCKS

    Like the Incrediwear Equine Therapeutic Wraps, Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks can be worn dry or wet.  As a dry application, they can be worn around the clock in the stall to improve circulation. The Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks can be applied wet to experience the “icing” effect for up to an hour.

     

    Laminitis-  Laminitis is a debilitating disease, particularly in the acute phases.  Ice therapy has shown to be beneficial at this stage of the disease. Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks can be applied wet to reduce laminar inflammation through their “icing” effects.  Repeatedly wetting the socks will prolong the icing effect. We do not recommend leaving the socks on for more than 1 hour at a time BUT you can reapply them at intervals.

    Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks dry while in the stall during the day when you are in the stable and the Circulation Standing Wraps at night - you could wear the circulation sock under the circulation standing wraps at night for optimum coverage.  

     

    Navicular-  With the advent of MRI, “navicular disease” as a term has been replaced with more a accurate description of the pathology involved in most cases of foot lameness.  Nevertheless, most conditions associated with the navicular region involve inflammation and would likely benefit from wearing the Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks  dry while in the stall during the day when you are in the stable and the Circulation Standing Wraps at night - you could wear the circulation sock under the circulation standing wraps at night for optimum coverage.  

     

    Deep Digital Flexor Tendon (DDFT) Lesions- While tendon lesions in the metacarpus and pastern have been diagnosed for years via ultrasound, DDFT lesions in the foot have only been reliably diagnosed with MRI.  Treatment may include regenerative therapies, but the most important aspect of the rehabilitation appears to be time off on stall rest.

    “Bad Footed” Horses-  By stimulating the blood flow at the coronary band, Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks can aid with hoof growth in “bad footed” horses.  This might include those with “shelly” feet, slow hoof growth, quarter cracks or contracted heels. Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks  dry while in the stall during the day when you are in the stable and the Circulation Standing Wraps at night - you could wear the circulation sock under the circulation standing wraps at night for optimum coverage.  

     

    Pastern Injuries- Incrediwear Equine Circulation Socks can be used for any injury to the pastern region.  This would include injuries to the straight or oblique sesamoidean ligaments, the DDFT or SDFT branches and the tendon sheath.

     

    * In rare cases, a horse may become “overstimulated” by the increased blood flow and begin pawing or tearing at the wraps.  In this case, the product should be removed, although it may be reintroduced on a subsequent day or for a shorter period of time.
