|PREVENT INJURY AND SHORTEN RECOVERY TIME
|Treat your horse like the professional athlete it really is !!
Application of cold therapy in the horse has been
recommended in the treatment of acute tendon injuries,
suspensory desmitis, and laminitis as well as other
non-specific areas of swelling and inflammation.
It has also been advocated in pre/post exercise therapy.

Continuous Flow Cold Water System
Just add a 2.5 kilo bag of hard cubed ice and two
quarts of water and you're ready to go! The
closed, dry cold system eliminates stall and
stable clean up, and because the system keeps
your horse dry throughout therapy, you are no
fungus that can create hoof maladies.
SIMPLE & SAFE
This durable system has been built by a global
medical devices manufacturer exclusively for
MacKinnon Inc. since 1998.
NEW Improved PASSIVE COMPRESSION SYSTEM for improved effective “icing” of the
canon bone and tendons.
The tendon/canon pad is designed differently from competitors' products. Ice
Horse pads have a specific chilled water flow pattern that guides the water
throughout the treatment surface of the horse's leg. This provides even
distribution of cold throughout the treatment area
THE LEG STAYS DRY AND COLD THROUGHOUT THE
Gentle passive compression at 5 pounds per square inch (PSI)
encompasses the horse's leg. Within the pad, constantly chilled water
flows at a rate of 1000 ML/minute, or a liter per minute.
The water pad is contained in a unique passive, or static, compression
sleeve developed by Ice Horse. The sleeve encompass the cannon
bone and is secured by four expandable straps that provide firm
placement and even compression throughout the leg surface being
treated. This combination of the water circulatory pad and insulated
sleeve system results in the horse's leg being colder longer, due to the
insulating factors of the unique sleeve system and the constant
compression it provides.
