Hidez animal compression suits are engineered using innovative technology. The panels are designed, cut and sewn to focus on muscle groups. The unique design creates a controlled graduated compression to an animal’s body.
Recovery: Graduated compression means that a greater amount of pressure is applied at the extremities (the lowest point of the leg) and the pressure reduces along the limbs and body. The technique employed by the design of Hidez animal compression suits assists in forcing vital blood supplies out of the lower limbs, back into circulation and towards the heart. This process may enhance blood flow and oxygen available to an animal’s muscles. In addition, the process can speed up the removal of waste products like lactic acids and carbon dioxide, for vital blood supplies. Good healthy blood supplies ensures recovery from injuries faster, helps in the prevention of injuries by maintaining muscle temperature and reduces muscle fatigue by flushing out ‘bad blood’, which aids in the reduction of delayed onset muscle soreness.
Travel: The suit wraps the muscles aiding in the reduction of muscle vibrations. This is very important when animals are travelling. Muscle’s work extremely hard during travelling, they vibrate & can overstretch. Muscle vibration can cause muscle trauma which can lead to muscle fatigue which can reduce performance. The suit helps to reduce vibrations helping to minimise muscle fatigue thus giving a fresher horse at the end of a journey and ultimately result in better performance. The suit also helps support the horse’s muscles and joints making it feel more secure and reducing the likelihood of travel sickness.
Fabric: Hidez manufactures its own fabric with superior breathability and moisture management properties in a high stretch elastomeric yarn. This fabric is made using a "warp knit" construction. Warp knitted fabrics are more durable than regular circular knitted fabrics. Our fabric is among the most durable fabrics of this kind anywhere in the world and designed to return its natural / original shape no matter how much physical exertion or force the fabrics have been put under when worn.
