Flexible & comfortable Polar Rappas© are simple to apply and cannot be over tightened. They come in a twin pack made up of the following two components:
The Polar Rappa©
Custom-designed leg wraps made with a Polycotton outer, quilted to a fibre core. They feature a cotton rich fleece lining and an integral pocket for the ColdPak© with a hook & loop fastening running down the entire length of the Polar Rappa© that therefore eliminates the need for straps.
The Polar ColdPak©
Removable & re-useable, the Polar ColdPak© is specifically developed to cool legs after strenuous exercise or injury. The ColdPak is filled with a nano-composite powder which remains malleable when frozen, allowing it to be moulded comfortably around the tendon.
The ColdPak© is neatly slotted into a pocket within the Polar Rappa©, making it efficient and hygienic to use when on the horses leg, therefore avoiding any cold burns. It stays clean inside the pocket and can be removed easily for re-freezing. They are 50% lighter than similar sized gel packs & are reusable for up to 200 times.
Why buy the Polar Rappa over other options?
Vets & farriers usually recommend that the optimum requirement would be a 20 minute treatment, with the temperature maintained throughout.
Gels & ice alternatives will naturally start at a cold temperature, but 20mins later will be many degrees warmer as the heat from the horse warms them. ColdPaks are different as the “powder” releases the same temperature for a 20-25min treatment period – which is exactly what the experts prefer.
You can also buy spare ColdPaks© from us for rotating or replacing to avoid buying the whole Polar Rappa product again. Click here to view the ColdPaks.
