Back on Track's joint and muscle supports are all made of functional textiles with heat reflective properties. The textile is a synergy of ancient Chinese experience and modern scientific textile technology. During the manufacturing of polyester fibres the ceramic particles are fused into the fibres. When heated, the ceramic particles radiate a heat back towards the body. This reflected heat is long-wave heat radiation, which is also known as long wave infrared radiation.
It is well established that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscles tension and improves performance. One important property is the injury prevention effect.
Therefore, the most important applications are injury prevention, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition, injury relief, which speeds up the healing process, and muscle warming-up exercises, which prevent fibrillar damages.
The tarsal support is also used for dogs with weak ankles due to a surgical operation, arthritis or injuries in ligaments and tendons.
To determine the right size, measure your dog's tarsus.
