Use of bio ceramic Welltex® products should be implemented gradually. It is recommended that Welltex® products be used for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. This allows your horse’s body time to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects.
The rational for first time Welltex® product use (no more than 4 hours during a 24-hour cycle) is that a slight increase in pain may be experienced by your horse when a Welltex® product is used for the first time and left on too long. It manifests itself as a swelling. This effect is due to increased blood circulation, which is a good indicator the ceramic in the Welltex® fabric is taking effect. This initial pain or swelling may occur after a few hours of use. If this happens adjust the time the product is used during a 24-hour cycle until there is no further pain or swelling.
After introducing the product to your horse over several days, increase the usage to a minimum of 8 hours per day, preferably more. Positive effects on tight muscles and stiff joints are often experienced after a few hours of use. More persistent problems may require 10-21 days of use, before the desired result is achieved.
