NATURAL SELECTION POLY FLEX WRAPS

The PFW is 100% poly (no fibreglass) and is as it sounds - flexible - allowing for controlled distortion that a weak and compromised hoof capsule cannot sustain. Latest research shows that allowing for controlled three dimensional distortion is critical for correct hoof function. A healthy hoof relies on this distortion to utilise and dissipate the forces of impact, particularly to the rear (palmar) aspect of the internal foot. The PFW provides a healing environment enabling internal structures, cartilage, digital cushion, connective tissue that make up a large proportion of the rear (palmarl) aspect of the internal foot to start to recover from atrophy, bruising and inflammation.

The PFW provides dynamic stability while allowing for three dimensional distortion vital to return health to internal structures that have proven too weak to withstand the forces of impact resulting in trauma. In some cases the structures are even too weak to cope with the static weight of the horse without on-going discomfort and pain.

It's not unusual once the PFW is applied for rapid comfort to return and secondary issues that have arisen as a result of poor hoof health, such as ligament, tendon strain and back pain to improve and even resolve.

The PFW has successfully treated many pathologies and aided recovery from navicular disease and caudal hoof pain, ringbone, sidebone, chronic founder, golden (white) line and wall infections restoring rapid health and growth to generally weakened hoof structures unable to retain a shoe. PFWs have also been an important aid to support horses in the initial stages of hoof rehabilitation. Many horses and ponies who have not had a promising prognosis or suffered from years of discomfort have found huge benefit from PFW with many of them now successfully performing in a wide range of disciplines barefoot.

WEAR THAT CARES !

The Poly Flex Wrap is a tool and as such is not designed to be a long term permanent fixture. It's strength lies in it's ability to support a weak hoof by allowing controlled distortion leading to a return to health and barefoot performance. During the recovery process stride wear patterns often appear on the bottom and toe of the PFW, particularly towards the end of a cycle. This will not detract from the capsular support and dynamic stability the PFW provides and is an excellent guide to indicate how symmetrically balanced your horse is moving and recovering. Often one hoof may have deteriorated further or carry a pathology more than the other, and/or if your horse is suffering from structural pain and asymmetry with hoof imbalance and weak structures being the catalyst. This is where the PFW comes into its own providing a solid and comparable pro-active record of recovery.
