The ICE-VIBE® is designed to promote healing through blood flow and movement to assist the body to clear the lymphatic system and not to freeze the legs which may compromise healing and lymphatic clearance.
After using ICE-VIBE® the legs should be no colder than cool to the touch after a treatment on setting 2 with cold packs. Using the boots on setting 3 with cold packs will leave the legs warm to the touch. The results of treatment should be judged on how the legs feel the next day not on how cold the legs are during treatment.
Yes you can, but please check weather conditions before travelling to ensure the horse will not overheat during the journey if wearing a blanket, and that they are happy with the leg wraps or boots in a stable environment before using them on a journey. We would not recommend first using them while travelling.
Ionic can be used before a workout to aid preparing the horse’s muscles for the efforts of training and afterwards to help the muscles recover.

Ionic aids and promotes circulation within the equine user. While the surface temperature of your animal may increase with wear, our testing of this product has not resulted in increase or excess sweating during use or when worn in hot climates. However, should you experience something different and your horse is not comfortable with it, we suggest changing the use of the Ionic blanket to cooler time periods such as overnight.
Ionic is a passive therapy that works best when worn for an extended period of time. We would ideally recommend building up to wearing for extended periods of time of a maximum of 8 hours.
We would not recommend the use of this product with a pregnant mare. If uncertain, please consult your veterinarian.
