Hidez Animal Compression Suits uses revolutionary technology to help speed recovery and protect your athlete animals during travel.
This suit uses specially designed panels to focus on muscle groups and create a controlled graduated compression to the animal's body.
Recovery By applying pressure to the animal's extremities and reducing the amount of pressure along limbs and body, the Hidez Compression suit assists in forcing vital blood supplies out of the lower limbs and back into circulation towards the heart. This may enhance blood flow and oxygen available to an animal's muscles while reducing waste products, such as lactic acids and carbon dioxide. With a healthy blood supply, injuries are healed faster and muscle fatigue is reduced, which aids in the reduction of delayed onset muscle soreness.
Travelling Muscle vibration can be a serious problem for traveling animals. When the muscles vibrate, they can become outstretched and microfiber tears start to form in the muscles. These tears cause membranes to leak and the enzyme Creatine Kinase (CK) leaks into the blood in high concentrations, causing cramping and travel sickness. While wearing a Hidez Compression Suit, muscle groups are supported with the correct amount of pressure, and the amount of muscle vibration your animal experiences during transport is reduced.
My horse loves it by Tammy from Wicksburg, AL01/22/2013
After seeing a lot of info on this product on Facebook, I decided to try it. I have a competitive FEI dressage mare. She works hard on a regular basis and attends 4-6 shows a year. The trailering has always gotten her tired and usually has been the hardest part of the weekend. This product should help cut down on trailering fatigue. I have not had a chance to try that part out yet. I have been using it after out work sessions. It was a bit tricky to get on the first time but has gotten a lot easier as I have done it. Spree stands and almost falls asleep in it. It may be my imagination but I do think that she feels better through her back and warms up faster the next day. The company has really paid attention to detail from the packaging the suit comes in to even including a video of how to put the suit on and a small backpack for storage. I highly recommend this product!
