So lets have a look at the technology involved.
Ceramic Fabric Technology:
The Therapy-Tec rugs have a unique technology embedded into the fabric. Ceramic powder has been blended into the lining to create a warming therapeutic effect.
Ceramic Fabric is a powerful thermal insulator, perfect for locking in the warmth and redirecting heat with very little loss. This technology has even been used in space shuttles to insulate and reflect radiation.
The ceramic powder helps reflect body heat back onto the animal to warm them up and improve circulation. The powder has been specially designed to not wash out and will last for as long as the rug itself. The rug can be easily popped into the washing machine at 30ºC. However, it is best to read the instructions to get the best out of your products.
Due to the warming effect, the Therapy-Tec Rug will help to increase the flow of circulation within the body. With this, comes a range of beneficial properties to help your four legged friends.
The Therapy-Tec is perfect to use before exercise or after a workout. This is because the rug helps to increase the amount of oxygen being supplied to the tissues and vital organs.
Increasing the blood circulation, the rug helps to improve muscle function to recovery. Improved circulation also has smaller effects from healthier skin to the internal organs. This allows the body to help fight of infections and reduce problems associated with poor circulation.
Once again, the increased blood flow can also improve the function of the muscles. This is due to the rich supply of nutrients and oxygen to the tissues.
This can help to warm up the animals muscles before a workout. It can also help to build and repair muscles after exercise. This will help to prevent the build up of lactic acid and ease any strains and pains that may occur.
With extra blood flow comes recovery. Blood is known for carrying oxygen, white blood cells and nutrients – all of which are the building blocks of recovery. This rug makes it ideal for use after exercise to help repair and relax the muscles after a good workout. However, it is also beneficial for smaller ailments such as stiffness, muscle soreness, pain relief from conditions such as arthritis. The Therapy-Tec rug can also help to encourage the animals natural immune system to fight back against inflammation.
The Therapy-Tec Rug also helps to reduce the build up of lactic acid. This is done by providing oxygen to the muscles where it is needed.
