Ice-Vibe

Circulation Therapy

What are the ICE VIBE gaiters actually intended for?

Tendons heal much more slowly than muscles because of their poor circulation and slow metabolism. Tendon problems are often the result of damage. If you have the Horseware If you use ICE-VIBE gaiters regularly, they can promote the blood circulation in your horse's legs. Before work, the gaiters warm up the tendons, after work the tendons are cooled down. In rehabilitation the gaiters 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 pay attention to the label for above. Lay out the cool packs before use in the fridge or freezer for at least 2 hours. The cool packs can also be warmed up in warm water. Please do not put in the microwave!

front

Ice vibe outside

Outside

Forefoot root gaiters (knee wrap)

Put on the knee wrap correctly

The cool pack is placed from the inside on the front of the gaiter, the Velcro fastener is folded on 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. Cool packs should always be used if there is swelling

The gaiter is attached to the pastern joint in such a way that the vibration panel is centered at the front and the rear part of the joint can be seen through the gap on the back of the gaiter.

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

The vibrating element is pushed down the bag. The ON / OFF switch is in line with the print on top.

The gaiters for the ankle come with two cool packs of the same size. These fit in the attached pockets on the outer and inner side of the ankle.

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

The gaiter is put on so that the heel hump goes through the opening of the gaiter.

The 3 settings

The gaiters have three different settings. You switch on the gaiters by pressing the "ON" button for a long time. With each subsequent press you switch up one level.

Level 1: For getting the horse's leg used to 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 sturdy horses or for the hind legs. Switches 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 must NOT be used in the event of a fracture or infection. Do not use the gaiter if your horse has screws or plates in its legs. Always use the gaiters with the cool pack if you have 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 pack, 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 sturdy material, so your horse can wear them on the paddock or meadow. But also keep in mind that gaiters usually shouldn't be worn for many 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.

Heat the cool packs in warm water, not in the microwave! Warm packs are good for warming up the legs before training or for older horses with osteoarthritis to prevent stiffness. Make sure that the packs are not too hot so that your horse does not get burned.

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. This can lead to an inflammatory reaction if the legs are very cold for a long time. The gaiters are designed to cool the tissue over the cool packs and slow the blood flow to reduce inflammation. However, when combined with massage, blood flow is not completely restricted. In this way, the oxygen content of the tired and damaged tissue can be maintained and a better recovery possible.

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 the leg, thus preventing swelling.
