Hidez animal compression suits are engineered using revolutionary technologies. The panels are designed, cut and sewn to focus on muscle groups. The unique design creates a controlled graduated compression to an animal's body.
Recovery: Graduated compression means that a greater amount of pressure is applied at the extremities (the lowest point of the leg) and the pressure reduces along the limbs and body. The technique employed by the design of Hidez animal compression suits assists in forcing vital blood supplies out of the lower limbs, back into circulation and towards the heart. This process may enhance blood flow and oxygen available to an animal’s muscles. In addition, the process can speed up the removal of waste products like lactic acids and carbon dioxide, for vital blood supplies. Good healthy blood supplies ensures recovery from injuries faster, helps in the prevention of injuries by maintaining muscle temperature and reduces muscle fatigue by flushing out ‘bad blood’, which aids in the reduction of delayed onset muscle soreness.
Travel: Just like human graduated compression apparel brands (graduated compression suits such as SKINS® popular with athletes), Hidez animal compression suits use a unique muscle focus design when applying pressure to an animal’s skin. The suit wraps the muscle groups focusing on controlling graduated compression, but also aiding in the reduction of muscle vibrations. This is very important when animals are travelling. Muscle’s work extremely hard during travelling, they vibrate & can overstretch. Muscle vibration can cause micro fibres to tear in the muscles, as a result membranes leak and the enzyme Creatine Kinase (CK) leaks into the blood in high concentrations causing cramping and ultimately travel sickness.
Fabric: Hidez animal compression suits are made of breathable & fast drying (wicking) fabrics. Wicking is a high stretch elastomeric yarn that is 50+ UV Protection, with anti-bacterial & soil/stain resistant properties. These fabrics are more durable and superior than circular knit fabrics, which have natural stretch. This means they are harder and don’t hold the correct levels of compression needed for Hidez animal compression suits. When circular fabrics rip or are torn they tend to run, unlike the Hidez animal compression suit warp knit fabrics.
