ABOUT HANSBO SPORT
The Hansbo Sport ICM series combines many years of expertise in equestrian products with innovative healing technology that targets vulnerable areas of the horse that are sensitive during and after hard work. While focused on rehabilitation, our latest product line is also designed for optimal fit, function and style.
Hansbo Sport ICM wraps, rugs, boots, saddle pads and harnesses work by generating their own heat, giving the horse a greater feeling of wellbeing and helping to prevent injuries.
It is well known that heat accelerates healing in joint disorders. Heat has long been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis as well as muscle aches and injuries, and problems in tendons and ligaments. Clinical studies have more recently shown that ceramic material placed against the skin activates infrared waves from body heat in specific areas to aid in healing.
Infrared waves accelerate blood circulation in the body, so-called deep heat. Heat-sensitive nerves are activated, which reduces muscle tension and stimulates the body to emit endorphins, creating a sense of wellbeing. As the processes interact, the effect of the infrared waves reaches deeper into the body and can also have a positive effect on inflammation.
Use of ceramic fabrics can increase blood flow by up to 80% and reduce muscle spasms. Increased blood circulation speeds up healing in skin and muscle, as well as bones.
HANSBO SPORT ICM FEATURES TWO INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES: CERMIC IC AND CERAMIC/MAGNETIC ICM.
Supporting a horse’s wellbeing helps it to perform at its peak. Regular use of HANSBO SPORT ICM enables a faster recovery period after exercise.
Hansbo Sport ICM products should be used cautiously at first to allow your horse to get used to the ceramic and magnetic effects of the fabric. Not to be used when pregnant.
HANSBO SPORT IC
In products constructed with infused ceramic fabric, minerals in the ceramic pick up infrared waves from the horse’s body heat within a defined area, stimulating blood circulation, the lymphatic system and cell growth. Blood circulation can quickly increase up to 80%, which promotes a reduction in swelling. This in turn leads to improved removal of waste products and faster detoxification after hard work.
With infused ceramic technology, the horse’s own body heat is the sole source of heat. So your horse will never become overheated. Similarly, if you were to sit outdoors dressed in a t-shirt with ceramic fibres, you wouldn’t feel the cold as quickly because the ceramic material would cause your blood circulation to increase, despite the fact that your body temperature has not noticeably changed. We are continually testing our ceramic fabrics to ensure that they contain the right proportion of ceramic fibres.
HANSBO SPORT ICM
We offer a complete range of products constructed from a unique ceramic-magnetic fabric that not only has a healing effect, but can also prevent injuries and facilitate rehabilitation. They work by reflecting the body’s own infrared heat to increase blood circulation, which in turn delivers relaxation, wellbeing and faster recovery.
Hansbo’s ICM products remain effective through years of use and washing. That’s because the ceramic-magnetic substances are infused in each fibre of our fabrics, not simply applied as a top coating.
ALL HORSES BENEFIT FROM USING PRODUCTS WITH INFUSED MAGNETIC THERAPY.
Infused Magnetic Therapy increases oxygenation to the horse’s muscles, causing tense muscles to relax. You can use ICM products before or after training to ensure the horse’s muscles are slack and relaxed. The products’ unique characteristics ensure that the horse feels comfortable both on the road and in the stable after riding. The products should be regarded as an aid to, but not as a substitute for good training.
