The innovative solution for healthy horse legs
EquiCrown® medical compression bandages for horses. They are characterized by their anatomically perfect fit and precisely defined compression pressure. Both blood circulation and lymph flow will be stimulated and supported. Lymph fluid and harmful substances in the horse's leg are transported away faster.
EquiCrown® was developed on the basis of over 100 years of experience in human medical compression therapy. EquiCrown® is already successfully being used by professional riders like Grischa Ludwig (German and European horse reining champion), Sybille Markert-Beaumer (second place in the German endurance championship), Lisa Carlsen, Canadian Equestrian Jumping Team, Robbie Davis, US hall of fame jockey/trainer.
Because of their size and anatomy, horses have a very complex lymphatic system extending through their entire body parallel to the blood circulation system. The lymphatic system supports their body's immune system. A horse has about 8,000 lymph nodes distributed throughout their entire body; humans have only about 400 to 600. Lymph nodes clean and detoxify lymphatic fluid given off from blood vessels in the horse's body.
Overall, a horse's lymph flow is relatively slow and kept up especially through movements. If a horse has to stand still for a prolonged period of time, stasis may occur in the lymphatic system, and legs may swell. To support the lymphatic system in such cases, an EquiCrown® compression bandage may be used in addition to movement of lymph drainage. Attention: Only use EquiCrown® if the horse has no fever! The source of any fever must be investigated first.
For the horse's health and well-being, it is important that the lymphatic system works well.
