Instructions

Instructions for Use:
Please read carefully, both the usage and washing instructions, before using the product.

All Back on Track products should be implemented gradually. To start with, use the product for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. The body then has the opportunity to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects.

The reason we recommend starting with a maximum of 4 hours use is that some people experience pain in the beginning. In horses and dogs, it manifests itself as a swelling. This is due to the increased blood circulation, which is actually a good indication that the ceramic fabric is taking effect. This initial pain or swelling can occur anywhere from a few to several hours of use. You should then cease using the product any more that day, and instead introducing it carefully and more gradually over the following days.

After the introductory period you should up the usage to a minimum of 8 hours per day, preferably more. After only an hour or so is often perceived a positive effect on tight muscles and stiff joints. More persistent problems may require several days, usually between 10-20, before the desired result is achieved.

After the introductory period of 2-3 days it is important to continue to use the product intensively at least 10, preferably 20 days, before assessing its impact. Since this ceramic fabric reflects more of the body’s heat radiation as you move, the effect is greatest if you wear the product when active. Back on Track also works when resting, even when you sleep.

Continue to use the product according to the routine you develop, or use it for two weeks and then take a break in the third week, this in order to avoid dependency. The sensitivity of this dependency varies from individual to individual. For maximum effect, the ceramic fabric should be in direct contact with the skin (if necessary, a thin cotton cloth inserted between).

Note: Caution is advised during simultaneous use with liniment or similar, since the effect is amplified. Use the product only as directed and consult a doctor if symptoms persist. Do not use during pregnancy.

Specific instructions for use on horses and dogs:

Keep in mind that the effect of Back and Track increases with movement when the body heat increases, so in addition to using pads and blankets in the stables, the horse can also be allowed to move around with the Back on Track products. Especially suitable in this context is Riding Boots, Leg Wraps, Saddle Pads, Exercise Sheets and Blanket/Sheets.

For long term problems, the horse may need to use Back on Track for an extended period. Use the product for two to three weeks and have a break one week, to see if the symptoms persist.

As a preventive measure, Back on Track can be used with regular breaks. Use Back on Track 1 day before and 2 days after exercise and then stop until the next workout. For warm-up, use 1-2 hours before and 2-4 hours after exercise.

For dogs, one often uses the standard Dog Blanket, which is rain repellent and breaths. However, it should be noted that for long-running problems, Back on Track should be used for several weeks, at least 8 hours per day, with regular breaks in order to achieve the desired results. This means that the dog can use the blanket day and night, indoor as well as outdoor, 24/7. If being used at night, it is probably more comfortable for the dog to wear the Mesh Blanket, which is more adaptable. Alternatively, the dog may be provided with a mattress with "memory foam" or a cover of Back on Track to the sleeping basket. The foam part molds to the body shape and relieves a sore back.

Washing:

Back on Track products can be machine washed up to 86°F or 30°C. Use normal detergents that do not contain bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry only, do NOT tumble dry.

Note: Do not use bleach or fabric softener, or tumble dry. The product should be ironed at a maximum temperature of 122 F The ceramic powder is fused in the fibres of polyester/polypropylene and does not separate when washed. The textile loses efficiency with time and extended use.

The textile is produced in China and consists of 100% polypropylene (PP) with ceramic powder or 50% polyester with ceramic powder and 50% cotton.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on Track gloves I have arthritis in my hands from a 10 year career in horse racing. I took a 20 year break and started riding Dressage. Almost immediately my hands became very painful. I bought the more expensive Back On Track Gloves and had amazing relief, but found them a bit "hot" to wear in the summer so I now have these gloves. On really bad days, I sleep with them on and in the morning, no pain!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting, fine fabric, comfortable gloves I bought these gloves for my husband because I have other Back on Track products. He wears them mainly at night to sooth his arthritic hands, but I have also seen him wearing them while reading or relaxing. I have a pair also and use them for the same purpose.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! Like the gloves, my hands feel a lot better (better circulation!) since I am wearing them. Got the regular gloves and the riding gloves.I would have given them 5*s except for the sizing. Since they run small I took one size larger, 1/2 size would have been better but smartpak does not carry the 1/2 sizes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and helpful Wear these gloves either by themselves - when inside -- or under gloves when outside working/riding. They are comfortable and warm and help me keep my hands functionning!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must give it time I bought these gloves hoping they would help with a tendon injury to my left hand. Really, I haven't felt a significant difference yet in the month I have been wearing them. Perhaps it will take longer to experience a notable difference. There isn't any sensation with wearing them but my hands must get warm. I wear them to bed and by morning I have pulled them off in my sleep.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy & warm used a few times and really liked,,then gave to my mother who has Raynaud's. These are the first gloves that have ever kept her hands warm and she can wear them at work etc. So then she got my Back on Track sock liners! Ordered myself another pair. word of caution.. they run one size too large. read washing instructions to keep them working for you.

I have been wearing them every night for the last two week and my hands feel great! The swelling and stiffness is gone! I HIGHLY recommend these gloves and all Back on Track products! I am going to buy the socks next!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just a nice glove liner I purchased these because I have trouble keeping my hands warm in the winter. I used them the first time as a liner with another pair of winter gloves and they did not keep my hands warm at all. But they are a really nice glove liner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't think they'd work but they do I'm a massage therapist and work on 24 people a week. I'm also a horse owner and have Reynauds. I bought these gloves and a Back on Track t-shirt hoping they would help if my hands and shoulders were hurting. They have worked wonders. I wear them to bed and the next morning my hands are again ready to work and my shoulders and back feel great. I haven't used the gloves as liners because I use them when I come in from the cold. I can't comment on durability outdoors but they are plenty durable for what they're used for at the moment. I've worn the shirt to one of my massage jobs and it kept me loose for my entire shift.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They work, but don't hold up... Bought these gloves because I have Reynauds Syndrome. First time I went to put them on under another pair of gloves, they caught on the velcro and frayed. For the most part they work well, but I thought they would be more durable for the price. Also, in cold weather you must use them as a liner or they won't work at all.
    Date published: 2013-01-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed First of all, these are liners rather than gloves. They are too thin and slippery to be practical on the outside. I experimented with them on one hand inside rubberized working gloves both small and large. The small didn't work at all - very cold. The large was better, I assume due to the air space created. Bottom line - I used the liner and large glove on one hand and my REI snowboarding glove on the other, which gave me at least some dexterity on the liner hand and did keep my fingers a little warmer. The REI gloves were warmer overall, however.
    Date published: 2013-01-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Reynauds Sufferers! I have Reynauds Syndrome, and before I got these liners, I used to have to stop halfway through my lessons for a hand warmer break in the winter. Now, my hands actually sweat during my lessons. I wear them with the SSG 10 Belows. As another reviewer said, they work best when they have heat to reflect, so running my hands under warm water or sticking my fingers in my mouth before I put them on helps them. They fit a bit more loosely than I am used to, but not in a bad way, though the wrists are way too big on me so the button closure is useless. Overall, one of my favorite winter purchases.
    Date published: 2013-01-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great gift for trainer I got these as a gift for my trainer, who complains of soreness and stiffness in her hands. My review is based on what she says about them. In short, they are great. She is wearing them now under a pair of larger gloves as liners and they are keeping her hands toasty and comfortable during our New England winter. They are now on my wish list!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warms hands up quickly Has helped with my raynaud's syndrome in my fingers. Bought a large for my husband and he uses to warm his hands up quickly after working outside in the winter. Have only had a month, so cannot attest to their durability
    Date published: 2013-01-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique & Useful Gloves I have Rheumatoid Arthritis & Raynaud's. These gloves improve both circulation & warmth in my hands. If you have RA these may take some getting used to as the increased circulation can trigger a flare up-esp in warm weather. But, this goes away after a couple wears. They're not the most durable glove I've ever had, but, they lessen my pain, so I don't care. Like the gloves-love the customer service @ SmartPak & Back on Track.
    Date published: 2013-01-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend Cold hands are always a problem for me, but these work well for keeping them warm. In very cold weather, I use them as a liner for heavy duty Winter gloves, and they're perfect on their own for weather that's a bit milder. If cold hands are not a problem for you, I'd frankly say that these are a bit expensive to use merely as liners and likely not worth the high price; however, if your hands do get uncomfortably cold, they're worth every dime.
    Date published: 2013-01-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They do the job, but don't hold up I purchased these gloves to use as a liner for my work ones since it's getting cold and my hands freeze. The first time I went to put them on, the velcro on my work gloves caught them and frayed them. I was so mad! But once I started wearing them, they really did do the trick for keeping my hands warm. So if you're going to buy these, they do work very nicely, but only use them as a liner and BE VERY CAREFUL!!!
    Date published: 2012-12-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have some arthritis in my thumb and a pulled muscle in my palm. These gloves brought warmth and almost immediate comfort. I even sleep with them on! They seem pretty durable, but I don't think they're suited to be worn by themselves while grooming, riding, etc. I would highly recommend these either as a glove liner or as a pair to wear at home. They run a bit large; I usually buy size 7 1/2 - 8 gloves; the medium fit perfectly.
    Date published: 2012-11-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought these because my hands swell up when I sleep and I can't close my hand when I wake up in the morning with out pain. To see if these gloves really worked I wore just one glove to see if there was a difference between the two hand in the morning. The first night I felt very little diffence but the more I used them the better it got now me and my husband fight over them so I guess I am going to have to buy an other pair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought 2 prs - one for my husband & one for me. They ran large, so I gave my husband mine. He is enjoying them, finds them comfortable & useful. Since I am not really a glove person - except when I am riding, I returned the other pair. They are fine as a "liner" glove, but too bulky for me under another glove.
