Protechmasta Infrared Quarter Rug
The Protechmasta Infrared Quarter Rug gently increases blood flow to the large muscle groups of the hind quarters assisting warm up, improving flexibility and helping to prevent injury.
Far infra-red technology: The infrared technology will gently increase blood flow, detoxify and promote healing for your horse. This is ideal for use before work to prepare the muscles for exercise, but most importantly after work to help reduce lactic acid build up and aid the repair process of any damage. Special ceramic powder (filaments) are blended with the yarns of the lining fabric, providing long lasting properties that will not wash out. These filaments are impregnated with Far Infrared (FIR) emitting nanoparticles designed to deliver thermal radiation effects.
The benefits of the FIR heating elements of the Protechmasta rug lie in its ability to increase the blood flow of your horse by activating vasodilation and then keeping it constant. This widening of the blood vessels will improve metabolic rate and oxygenation of blood and cells. The heat generated from increased blood flow also makes connective tissue more flexible as its extensibility will increase, allowing for improved suppleness and prevention of injury. It temporarily decreases joint stiffness, pain and muscle spasm. Heat reduces inflammation and the build-up of fluid in tissues (oedema).

Regulates temperature: 60g of fibre fill create pockets of air helping transport moisture to the high wicking, micro air mesh outer whilst keeping the muscles warm. The rug's air mesh fabric is soft and absorbent, designed to take away moisture and regulate temperature by circulating warm air around the horse at a constant rate and in keeping with the equines present temperature and environmental temperature.
Easy to use fastenings: Adjustable hook and loop straps attach to the stirrup leather or girth straps depending on saddle style.
Versatile: Can be used on a variety of different styles of saddles.
