ICE- Feltlock boots boots are Feltlock boots vibrating boots that help stimulate circulation in the horse's legs, creating a massage effect. They combine the effects of cooling and massage therapy to effectively treat ligament and tendon damage. The massage effect helps to stimulate the lymphatic system, to remove pain and swelling resulting from the daily wear and tear of the joints, which can be managed with the daily use of the Feltlock boots , and injury rehabilitation can be achieved more effectively.
Many horses suffer from knee problems as a result of bad confirmation, competition or just old age. Treating knees can be both expensive and unsuccessful.
ICE-VIBE has developed ICE-VIBE Knee: boots that wrap around the knee similar to a human knee support. They have a removable cold pack that Velcros on to the top of the wrap to prevent it slipping, while the massage panel sits at the front of the knee.
The cold pack can be heated in warm water to combine heat and massage before exercise to help reduce stiffness. ICE-VIBE knees are wireless, rechargeable, easy to use and portable. They are sold in pairs and we recommend treating both legs even if only one leg is injured.
