CRYOCHAPS have been designed not only to help in the rehabilitation after injury but more importantly, be part of an everyday cool-down routine to focus on recovery & injury prevention. CRYOCHAPS have been developed to mimic ice bath or cold water immersion which has become part of many athlete’s recovery phase. The general theory behind this cold therapy is that the cold exposure helps to combat the micro trauma (small tears) in tissues & resultant soreness caused by intense or repetitive exercise. The cold therapy constricts blood vessels, flushes waste products & reduces swelling & tissue breakdown. Subsequently, as the tissue warms & the blood flow is increased, the healing process is jump-started. CRYOCHAPS provide cold therapy & essential compression to be proactive against injury, or, to help the healing process after injury.
Using Cryochaps could also ease any localised pain in a horse's legs. Local analgesic benefits are believed to result when tissues are cooled to between 10°C and 15°C or when skin temperature decreases to <13.6°C.
When using Cryochaps external skin temperatures reach <13.6° C.
