Cryochaps is a British business founded by Tricia Palmer Lewis. Relatively new to the market, Tricia has had every success with the chaps since she started, including being placed highly commended at the 2017 BETA Innovation Awards.
Equine injuries to the lower limb both front & hind are a common occurrence in this day & age. Humans have selectively bred the horse to become more agile, more expressive, more powerful, faster & stronger. However their limbs do not always cope and, as any owner will know, injuries are commonplace. Tricia created Cryochaps to help in the rehabilitation after injury and return to exercise, but more importantly, to be part of an everyday cool-down routine to focus on recovery & injury prevention.
Cryochaps have been developed to mimic ice bath or cold water immersion which has become part of many athlete’s recovery phase. The general theory behind this cold therapy is that the cold exposure helps to combat the micro trauma (small tears) in tissues & resultant soreness caused by intense or repetitive exercise.
