The Hock Brace may be used in the treatment of various different problems associated with inflammation in the hock joints. The Hock Brace may be used for injury prevention in order to minimise inflammation of the joints.
It has three velcro straps and is available for both left and right legs. The brace is available in two styles, one covers the area completely and the other one has an opening for the hock.
The interior is 50% cotton and 50% polyester fabric infused with ceramic particles, whist the exterior shell is made of neoprene. In order to minimise the risk of the brace sliding down, we recommend that one wrap a pad on the leg below the hock brace. The pad stops the protective brace from sliding down which means that the brace's velcro strap does not need to be pulled so hard. This minimises any risk for stasis when the horse is lying down and bends the hook.

Back on Track's joint and muscle support are all made of functional textiles with heat reflective properties. This wonderful material is a synergy of ancient Chinese experience and modern scientific textile technology. During the manufacturing of polyester or polyester fibres, the ceramic particles are fused into the fibres.
When heated, the ceramic particles radiate heat back towards the body and this reflected heat is long-wave heat radiation, which is also known as long wave infrared radiation.
Heat Radiation and Injuries:
It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscle tension and improves performance. One important issue is injury prevention, when protective wear is used for training and competition.
Back on Track Products are designed to work with your horse's own body heat and should NOT to be compared to magnetic therapy.
