Ceramic Fabric Technology:
Ceramic powders have been blended into the lining for a warming therapeutic effect. This is a powerful thermal insulator typically used in space shuttles to insulate and reflect radiation. The ceramic powder helps reflect body heat back onto the animal to warm them up and improve circulation. The moisture wicking properties and the breathable fabric stop them from getting too hot. Don’t worry, the fabric has been designed so the powder will not wash out. The rug is machine washable at 30ºC. For more information on care please read the enclosed instructions.
The Therapy-Tec rug will help increase circulation due to the warming effects. Here are the main benefit of this:
Perfect to use before or after exercise. The rug will help increase the amount of oxygen supplied to the tissues and vital organs. This helps them work to their best ability
Increased blood circulation will help aid recovery
Helps fight infections and reduce problems associated with poor circulation such as swelling to limbs

Good circulation can also improve the function of the muscles. This is due to the rich supply of nutrients and oxygen to the tissue. This helps muscles to perform better.
The Therapy-Tec rug can help warm up the horses muscles before exercise. Perfect in those colder months, but also can help build and repair muscles after exercise. It also helps to prevent the build up of lactic acid and ease any strains and pair. Ideal for those older horses or dogs.
The recovery process is incredibly important whether your horse is in full competitive work or not. Blood that is carried around the body is known for carrying oxygen, white blood cells and nutrients; which all help with the recovery process. When the blood circulation is increased more blood is going to the working muscles helping them to recover quicker. It can also help to encourage the animals natural immune system to fight back against inflammation.
The Therapy-Tec rug is excellent at helping to repair and relax the muscles after exercise. It may also have small additional benefits like helping with stiffness and muscle fatigue.
