Professional's Choice Sports Medicine Boots Still Making Headlines
Professional’s Choice, renowned manufacturer of innovative equine products, is making the world recognized SMB Elite™ Sports Medicine Boots even more affordable to everyday horsemen. After seeing so many catastrophic leg injuries in the past year and the euthanasia of otherwise healthy horses due to such injuries, Professional's Choice has intensified their efforts to impart the importance of proper leg protection.
As an incentive to conscientious horsemen who realize the benefits of booting all four legs, Professional's Choice is offering a Value Pack which contains a full set of both front and rear SMB Elites at a substantial savings to the horseman. The SMB Elite Value Pack will be available in stores in March.
Professional's Choice receives countless accounts from horsemen crediting Sports Medicine Boots with saving their horses from crippling leg injuries. But, not only do Sports Medicine Boots offer significant protection and support, according to tests conducted at the University of Minnesota using a high speed treadmill with thoroughbred race horses booted with front SMBs, “horses exhibited increased comfort wearing the boots as they shifted their weight forward. Combining the high level of protection and energy absorption with minimal effects on the gait, the Sports Medicine Boot is a valuable tool in prevention of lower limb injuries during training and performance, as well as a valuable addition to the treatment regime for rehabilitating horses with limb injuries.” Booting all four legs allows the horse to comfortably maintain its normal distribution of weight.
Professional’s Choice is the inventor of the Sports Medicine Boot, and their boots are the most thoroughly tested and scientifically researched performance boots in the world. Extensive research and experiments have been conducted at the University of Wisconsin, University of Minnesota and Oklahoma State University. The results of scientific research show that Professional's Choice Sports Medicine Boots absorb and dissipate negative energy from hoof concussion without restrictions in gait, at any speed. In addition, the SMB addresses the entire suspensory system of the equine limb, providing excellent support to all tendons and ligaments.
