Ice-Vibe, the latest innovation from Dundalk based company Horseware, has been shortlisted in the Life Sciences category of the prestigious Irish Times and InterTrade Ireland Innovation Awards.

Following a presentation to the judges on February 6th, winners in each category will be chosen by an independent panel of judges from the shortlist of 3 finalists. An overall ‘Innovation of the Year’ winner will be drawn from the category winners. The winner will be announced in a ceremony at the Titanic Centre in Belfast on March 22nd.
Ice-Vibe are rechargeable vibrating boots that boost circulation in horse’s legs. Created by Co. Tipperary based New Zealander Louisa Williams and developed by Horseware, Ice-Vibe boots combine the effects of cooling and massage therapy to effectively treat strains, ligament and tendon damage.
Louisa says: “we believe that Ice-Vibe can really make a difference to the quality of life experienced by many hard working horses and we know that using the boots has prolonged the competitive careers of several top class horses. Too often horses with tendon problems are written off. We hope that the use of Ice-Vibe boots will give a second chance to horses who would otherwise have been put to sleep.”
Ice-Vibe already has one innovation award under its belt, having won the Innovation Award at the 2012 British Equestrian Trade Association fair.
