LeMieux Pro Ice Boots are sold in pairs, each set containing a pair of Pro Ice Boots and a pair of Pro Ice inserts. These boots provide targeted cold ice therapy for tendons and joints and can be used for regular maintenance and management or as part of injury recovery and rehabilitation.
LeMieux Pro Ice Boots contain unique Hypofreeze Gel that is retained in strategically placed pockets to avoid slumping within the boot. The gel remains soft and contours to lower limb ensuring maximum surface contact with skin. A soft mesh lining protects the skin from freeze burn, whilst allowing maximum transfer of cold to the leg. 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.
With more severe Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon injuries and 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 and toxins, and provide pain relief. Pro Ice boots should be applied in 20 minute sessions four or more times a day. The sooner they can be applied in these cases the better. The initial stages of injury are critical. Please 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 20-30 min 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.
Regular use of LeMieux Pro Ice boots for short periods (20-30mins) after intense exercise can prevent small injuries developing and ensure ligaments, tendons and joints remain tight and free of oedema. The sooner temperatures of tendons can be reduced after work the better. This can apply to high intensity dressage as well as galloping, jumping & cross country. Use of Pro Ice boots can prevent the onset of localised swelling, heat and pain resulting in possible unsoundness.
