Cryochaps Ice Wraps have been designed to help in the rehabilitation after injury but more importantly, be part of an everyday cool-down routine to focus on recovery & injury prevention.
Equine injuries to the lower limb both front & hind are a common occurrence. Horses are designed to be super quick & supple, balancing 400 kgs of bone & muscle on four legs.
CRYOCHAPS have been developed to mimic ice bath or cold water immersion which has become part of many athlete’s recovery phase.
The cold exposure helps to combat the micro trauma (small tears) in tissues & resultant soreness caused by intense or repetitive exercise.
The cold therapy constricts blood vessels, flushes waste products & reduces swelling & tissue breakdown. Subsequently, as the tissue warms & the blood flow is increased, the healing process is jump-started.
CRYOCHAPS meet the following criteria:
- Ease of application
- One wrap to fit hind or front legs of a pony or horse
- Easy clean
- Coverage of all tendon & ligament structures in the leg
- Lay flat in freezer & quick freezing but most of all
They are made in two parts, the ice gel & the material section.
This makes them reversible, & able fit any leg. Smooth material is part of the ice gel boot, it will not freeze to the leg & is simple to wash off to keep clean. The gel is quick to cool & maintains low temperatures.
Stretch Neoprene makes up the material boot which provides not only a secure fit but compression, essential in recovery.
*Come in pairs; Front or Hind
