Sportz-Vibe Massage Therapy blanket for Horses is designed to deliver massage vibrations to key parts of your horse's body to enhance health and performance. The comfortable, lightweight blanket can be used year round to help your horse's muscles to relax before or after work, or while recovering from an injury. The ring-spun polyester fabric wicks moisture to keep your horse comfortable and dry to prevent chills.
The Sports-Vibe rug is a must have for any performance horse to keep muscles performing at their best.
For Warmup: The increase in blood flow created by the vibrating panels helps to make muscles more elastic and therefore assists you to warm up your horse, reducing the risk of injury.
Post workout or recovery: Massage can help to reduce inflammation by stimulating the lymphatic system to remove toxins. An increase in blood flow also helps bring oxygen and nutrients to the area which can assist with the healing process.
The Sportz Vibe rug has 8 panel positions to allow you to treat the most common areas of muscle tightness:
1. Either side of the hind quarters2. Either side of the saddle area3. Either side of the shoulders4. Either side of the neck
The rug comes with four vibrating panels and a battery included and three different battery positions so you can treat adjacent muscle groups such as the hind quarters and saddle area or shoulders and neck. The neck piece has a separate battery pocket so that it can be treated separately as well.
