How Back on Track works
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 carpal wrap does not totally restrict movement. It enables the dog to move the carpus, but it limits excessive movement. Its function is similar to that of human wrist bandages.
Ortopedia canina has another product - the carpal support - that provides stricter immobilization.
To determine the right size, measure the carpus of your dog.
Size Perimeter Height
S 14 cm 11 cm
