The Iconoclast® Rehabilitation boot is a working recovery boot for horses that have sustained an injury or strain to the soft tissue (ligaments or tendons) of the lower limb. Working in conjunction with our patented Double Sling Straps® is our patented Orthopedic Wedge®, which is positioned against the back of the fetlock joint and the first phalanx (upper pastern).
The soft ergonomically designed Orthopedic Wedge® provides additional vertical support to the ligaments and tendons of the equine leg. This support is beneficial to aid in the recovery of damaged tissue. Proper use of this product in conjunction with other recommended modalities of treatment will reduce the opportunity of scar tissue development during recovery. Our Double Sling Straps® ensure proper stability of the wedge insert by providing balanced, 360-degree support which prevents hyperextension or over flexing of the sesamodial region.
The Rehab boots are not recommended for use as performance boots. They are designed to be used in rehabilitation and recovery only. Rehab boots of most benefit if used immediately after an injury has occurred. It is recommended that they be fitted for a maximum of 4 hours on with 1 hour off and then repeat.
Once the horse has finished rehab and has been cleared to go back to work by a vet the horse should move back into wearing the Iconoclast Orthopedic Support Boots.
Please note: The Rehab boots are available in black only and are are made to fit both the front and hind legs. Also the Rehabilitation Boot does not accept bell boots.
We recommend using a soft tape measure. If you do not have a soft tape measure you can use something like string, wrap it around the fetlock, mark where the end meets the rest of the string and then simply lay it flat next to a tape measure, ruler or yard stick to get your measurement.
Be sure to measure both the FRONT & BACK fetlocks as they are often different sizes. It is ok to order boots in one size for Front and a different size for the Back
