Equicrown Bandage Sleeves for Horses
Equicrown Fit - hook and eye
EquiCrown fit with the double-row hook closure has proven itself particularly in wound care and in horses whose leg circumference fluctuates regularly by a few centimeters.
The tubular leg bandage extends from the fetlock to below the carpal or ankle. Due to the higher percentage of elastane in the knitted fabric, it is somewhat softer than the knitted fabric of EquiCrown active . The anatomical fit and the breathable material ensure optimal comfort. The even pressure curve offers optimal compression and a pleasant massage effect.
Preventive EquiCrown fit compression bandages are used if there is a tendency to tarnished legs, during long periods of standing or transport and for faster regeneration after exertion. They are used alongside treatment for soft bile, chronic lymph drainage disorders, tendon and fetus joint injuries or tendon disorders. Postoperatively, they reduce leg tarnish and prevent swelling. After the acute phase of a phlegmon has subsided or in laminitis, promote the removal of toxins from the limbs. EquiCrown fit in combination with a wound dressing has also proven its worth in scars and wound treatment. The version with knitted-in silver is particularly suitable due to its antibacterial effect to support the treatment of mauke and other skin problems.
