THESE COME WITH TWO WRAPS PER PACK
Passive Recovery –The Circulation Hoof Socks can be worn on horse's legs after working, training, or competition to reduce inflammation for recovery and injury prevention. They can also be worn under tendon boots and bell boots to give extra protection.
If you have the exercise bandages you can wear the hoof sock and wrap the bandages as normal over the hoof sock. This increases the area to which you will increase the circulation to!
The hoof sock can also be worn wet, this is easily done by placing the hoof sock on as normal pulling over the hoof. They can be worn turned down or worn fully up the leg. These amazing little socks turn into an ice pack treatment when made wet.
They can be worn for up to 1 hour!
Say good bye to messy gels, boots and buying refills for ice treatments PLUS this also goes over the hoof = ideal if there is heat in the hoof!
Cold Therapy – Simply wet Circulation Hoof Socks and ring out excess water. Cold therapy effectiveness will remain for 45 min up to 1 hour to reduce swelling. For maximum effectiveness, place in hot water for 2 minutes before applying.
DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
1. Immediately following working, training or competing with your horse, wet the Circulation Hoof Socks and leave on the horse for 45 minutes. Circulation Hoof Socks work as an ice pack for 45 minutes up to 1 hour to decrease swelling.
2. Circulation Hoof Socks can be worn for up to 24hrs, although we recommend wearing the Circulation Stable Wraps if you need a product for over night or for travel as it is more secure and less likely to be moved by the horse touching them.
The Incrediwear Equine Circulation Hoof Socks are designed to slip on horse's legs and fit comfortably. Hoof Circulation Socks are created to help prevent injury, accelerate recovery time, and improve performance.
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) a 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 wash bag. Wash warm or cold. Tumble dry low. DO NOT bleach. DO NOT iron. DO NOT dry clean.
*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 reapplied on a subsequent day or for a shorter period of time.
