Ice-Vibe

Circulation Therapy

What are the ICE VIBE gaiters actually intended for?

Tendons heal much slower than muscles due to poor blood flow and slow metabolism. Tendon problems are often the result of damage. If you Horseware If you use ICE-VIBE gaiters regularly, they can promote blood circulation in your horse's legs. Before work, the gaiters warm up the tendons, after work the tendons cool down. In rehabilitation, the spats can help with healing.

Important NOTE! The gaiters must not be used for breaks or infections.

Cooling gaiters for the front and rear legs

Set up cool packs correctly

The cool packs are marked with left and right. Also note the label for top. Place the cool packs before use for at least 2 hours in the fridge or freezer. The cool packs can also be warmed up in warm water. Please do not put in the microwave!

front

Ice vibe outside

Outside

The gaiters are put on with the print to the front. You close the Velcro fasteners from the outside as usual. You can slide the vibration panel into any inner pocket, but the best place is at the back of the string. Make sure the power button lines up with the words "ON."

Forefoot root gaiters (knee wrap)

Put on the knee wrap correctly

The cooling pack is placed on the front of the gaiter from the inside, the Velcro fastener is folded onto the outside and fixed there.

Since the cool pack rests directly on the joint, we recommend taking it out of the freezer for 5 minutes before use. The cool packs can be chilled in the fridge/freezer for at least 2 hours before use. Cold packs should always be used if there is swelling

The gaiter attaches to the pastern joint so that the vibration panel is centered at the front and the rear of the joint is visible through the gap in the back of the gaiter.

The upper velcro is fastened above the joint and the outer, elastic velcro is not too tight over the first velcro. The lower Velcro fastener is closed loosely.

Two cool packs of the same size are included with the ankle gaiters. These fit into the attached pockets on the outside and inside of the ankle.

The cool packs can be chilled in the fridge/freezer for at least 2 hours before use. In case of swelling, the cold packs should always be used.

The gaiter is put on in such a way that the heel bump goes through the opening of the gaiter.

The upper Velcro fastener is attached above the joint. All other Velcro fasteners are closed tightly one after the other.

The 3 settings

The gaiters have three different settings. You turn on the spats by long pressing the "ON" button. With each further press you switch up a level.

Level 1: For getting the horse's leg used to the vibration. Use this setting once a day for the first week. The vibration panel switches off automatically after 10 minutes.

Level 2: For everyday use. Switches off automatically after 20 minutes.

Level 3: For very stocky horses or for the hind legs. Turns off automatically after 20 minutes.

Please note!

Start with level 1 for the first few days to allow your horse's leg to get used to the gaiter and to ensure that the leg does not swell during use. If the leg swells after use, your horse could have a fracture or an infection. The gaiter should NOT be used IF BREAKD OR INFECTED. Do not use the gaiter if your horse has screws or plates in its legs. Always use the gaiters with the cold packs in case of swelling or bruises. If you are unsure, consult your veterinarian before use and clarify the use with him.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Without the cool packs, you can use the gaiters up to twice a day. With the cool packs up to three times a day.

The gaiters are made of solid material, so your horse can wear them in the paddock or meadow. But also keep in mind that gaiters are generally not meant to be worn for long hours.

If the vibration panels are completely discharged, the charging process takes about four hours.

Place the cool packs in the fridge or freezer for at least 2 hours. If you stored the cool packs in the freezer, let them air out for 5 to 10 minutes before using them. The cold packs should never be completely frozen and hard, but like Sand or feel snow in your hands. In winter, storage in the refrigerator is sufficient, because your horse's legs are already cooled by the cold outside temperatures.

Warm up the cool packs in warm water, not in the microwave! Warm packs are good for warming up legs before exercise or for older horses with osteoarthritis to prevent stiffness. Make sure the packs are not too hot to avoid burning your horse.

The tendons do not return to earlier temperatures as quickly as the muscles when cooled because they do not have the same blood flow or metabolism. Therefore, an inflammatory reaction can occur when the legs are very cold for a long time. The gaiters are designed to cool tissue via the cold packs and slow blood flow to reduce inflammation. However, in combination with a massage, the blood flow is not completely restricted. This allows oxygen levels to be maintained in tired and damaged tissues, allowing for better recovery.

Absolutely! Because by using it before working with your horse, you warm up your legs and the tendons become more supple through the massage. This prevents problems with the tendons. After work, you can use the cool packs to cool your legs down again without overcooling them, thus preventing swelling.
