What is ICM Technology in HANSBO Sport?

The Hansbo Sport ICM series combines two therapies: Ceramic and Magnetic. It combines theses two therapies into one dynamic product.

This innovative, dual action healing technology targets vulnerable areas of the horse – before, during and after hard work. With a focus on prevention and rehabilitation, the HANSBO Sport product line is also designed for optimal fit, function and style.

Hansbo Sport ICM wraps, rugs, boots, saddle pads and harnesses work by generating their own FIR radiation, giving the horse a greater feeling of well being, helping to prevent injuries, and increase the speed of healing.

Far Infrared Rays (FIR) are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate many layers of the horse’s body. and Far Infrared therapy is used to gently heal, soothe, stimulate and detox the physical body. Consequently this can have a soothing effect on the mind.

FIR very gently accelerates blood circulation in the body by expanding the capillaries that carry blood. When worn, Hansbo ICM Products increase oxygenation and regeneration of the blood, which activates infrared waves from body heat in specific areas of need to aid in healing.

This technology further activates sensitive nerves, which reduces muscle tension and stimulates the body to emit endorphins, creating a sense of well-being. As the processes interact, the effect of the infrared waves reaches deeper into the body and can also have a positive effect on inflammation.

Use of ceramic fabrics can increase blood flow by up to 80% and reduce muscle spasms. Increased blood circulation speeds up healing in skin and muscle, tendons and ligaments, as well as bones.
