RECOVERY SUIT FOR RACEHORSES

The sprinter Hay List was paraded in a wetsuit at Australia’s Flemington Racecourse recently. The suit is designed to assist racehorse’s recovery from races and strenuous training. The designers of the suit have taken their cue from athletes in other sports who use similar compression suits to aid recovery and muscle fatigue.

The compression suit is the creation by Hidez, a firm in Windsor, New South Wales, Australia.
The compression suit uses a “graduated compression method which helps circulation and supplies more oxygen to all the muscle groups.” They also claim that the suit enhances blood flow, reduces the onset of muscle soreness and speeds up recovery.
The Hidez Recovery Suit has zippers everywhere and takes about 90 seconds to put on. The garment worth $948 was tried on by Hay List for a couple of weeks.  The company claims they have also noticed a considerable improvement in his performance.
