Horseware Sportz-Vibe Massage Rug
Designed and created by the team who brought you Ice-Vibe, Sportz-Vibe is the most comfortable, lightweight and portable massage therapy rug for horses. Ideal as a warm up or recovery rug, it helps to warm up muscles before work and ease soreness and stiffness afterwards, and is ideal for maintening muscular well-being throughout the year.
How it Works
Sportz-Vibe’s massage action is gentle enough that it won’t over-work your horse’s muscles, but will effectively reduce muscle tension, and removable massage panels mean you can target a specific area.
Massage therapy is one of the oldest known methods of therapy, and is renowned for its ability to promote healing. Massage can help to reduce pain, improve blood supply to tissue, and reduce inflammation in horses that are suffering from long term muscular back problems. By encouraging the lymph system to move, massage helps to drain inflammation and stimulate repair to damaged tissue.
Why Use Sportz-Vibe?
Using Sportz-Vibe before exercise can help reduce the risk of injury as increasing blood flow to muscles, tendons and ligaments helps to make them more elastic.
Sportz-Vibe can help manage every day wear and tear, and help your horse to recover more quickly after hard work.
The increase in blood flow helps to make muscles more elastic and therefore assists you to warm up your horse reducing the risk of injury.
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. This can assist with the healing process.
Your Sportz-Vibe rug has eight different panel positions:
1. Either side of the hind quarters
2. Either side of the saddle area
3. Either side of the shoulders
4. Either side of the neck
There are 3 separate battery positions.
Your rug has four panels and a battery supplied with it. You can move the panels and battery around to treat different areas on your horse.
