Lemieux Pro Ice Boots
Pro Ice boots provide targeted cold ice therapy for tendons & joints use as regular maintenance & management or as part of injury recovery & rehabilitation
* Unique Hypofreeze Gel is retained in strategically placed pockets to avoid slumping within the boot.
* Gel remains soft and contours to lower limb ensuring maximum surface contact with skin.
* Soft mesh lining protects skin from freeze burn, whilst allowing maximum transfer of cold.
More Severe tendon injuries
With more severe SDFT's (superficial Digital Flexor Tendon) injuries & where hyperextension of the fetlock has occurred ice therapy is required to cause vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels), reduce proteolytic enzymatic activity, decrease influx of inflammatory mediators & toxins and provide pain relief. ProIce boots should be applied in 20min sessions 4 or more times a day. The sooner they can be applied in these cases the better. The initial stages of injury are critical.
The continued use of regular ice therapy as part of a controlled exercise programme is essential to recovery and will speed up the process of rehabilitation.
Note:always use cold therapy in conjunction with veterinary advice.
In more severe cases consult your vet immediately.
Instructions for Use
Place boots or inserts in freezer for minimum 4-6hrs or overnight prior to application.
Use in short 20-30min sessions/ multiple times daily in severe cases. Place securely on leg with 'joint cup' under back of fetlock. Ensure straps are firmly closed, but not over tight.
