Protechmasta Infrared Leg Wraps
Protechmasta infrared therapy boots are ideal for promoting healthier tendons and ligaments and as a result, producing a better performance. The far infra-red technology gently increases blood flow to tendons and ligaments, making connective tissue more flexible as its extensibility increases, allowing for improved suppleness and prevention of injury. It temporarily decreases joint stiffness, pain and muscle spasms. Heat reduces inflammation and the build-up of fluid in tissues (oedema). Comes in a pair.
Super wicking air mesh fabric that is soft and absorbent is used to wick moisture away from the skin. Far infrared technology gently increases blood flow to the tendon and ligaments to help warm them up before exercise and prevent injury. Increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the horse's legs is essential in the process of repairing wear and tear. A special ceramic powder is blended with the yarns of the air mesh fabric for long lasting properties that will not wash out. Easy to use fastenings and an ergonomically shaped design help to give the best fit to the front and back legs. Finished with easy close velcro straps to ensure secure and comfortable fit.
Independent clinical trials have shown that the surface temperature of the leg stabilises when wearing Protechmasta leg wraps and that the wraps will absorb and emit far infrared to prevent the horse's leg from heating up beyond that of a safe level.
