Even Back on Track did that quasi-science test where they showed the skin under the product was warmer than naked (begs the question as to whether that warmth does a THING for performance, but at least it's something). I'm fine with putting a product like this out there without having subjected it to FDA type testing-- but then don't go around with major claims about efficacy. Just say it incorporates the technology used on people and could help. That's different than saying a lot of what's on the Hidez website...
<Animal athletes are like human athletes> <-- oh, I guess I'll go eat some bute now since it works on horses. And oh, I guess I'll ask my horse to vomit since equines are like humans
<The unique seams also play a role, acting as anchor points our seams they help us with muscle focus creating the right amounts of controlled graduated compression to the animals body.> <--with apparently no testing, how do they know what the "right" amount of compression is?!
<We have done many trials with HIDEZ over the years. People whom have used the HIDEZ suits have experienced great results with their animals. From regular people training at home, Veterinarians to Olympic gold medalists competing in national and international events.> <-- blind, controlled studies? And how many people? And did they make any effort at control?
<When HIDES are worn during transport, the compressive effect prevents muscles from vibration & overextending (which can cause injury) and may even treat injuries as they occur.> <--I am not aware of ANY science behind ANY of this.
That's just a sample. The website is also full of typos.
And this statements made me cringe in "ick"
<Our Broad Mares suit is designed to support the mare and foal throughout pregnancy and will be left on the entire time of the pregnancy.>
Covered skin with unwashed lycra for literally months and months and months at a time? Poor mares!
