AquaTRAK™ integrates the superior benefits of hydrotherapy with a non-slip, solid surface, underwater treadmill to further enhance the rehabilitation process and significantly aid in conditioning. It is the first of its kind in the world to combine the healing and conditioning benefits of aquatic treadmill therapy with cold saltwater cryotherapy. Key benefits of its use include:

  • Builds core athletic ability by increasing strength, speed, agility and endurance
  • Brings horses back quickly and safely from leg and hoof injuries
  • Improves performance by increasing cardiovascular fitness, strength and flexibility while promoting correct posture and gait in a safe, controlled environment
  • Provides an optimal low impact exercise option without the issues associated with swimming or other high impact exercise
  • Enables variable resistance training by controlling the type, depth and temperature of the water
  • Provides the ability to customize a repeatable training program for each horse
  • Enables the use of appropriate warm-up, exercise and cool-down periods (unlike swimming)
  • Provides the ability to target specific muscle groups allowing the horse to be sculpted and shaped based on the need
  • Promotes correct posture and gait via through water resistance while enabling the horse to extend through a full range of motion
  • Provides the ultimate in recovery and rehabilitation with the built in cryotherapy option
  • Provides relief from inflammation and associated pain while promoting healing
  • Perfect for the recovery from core lesions when used in conjunction with stem cell therapy or platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Theraplate
TheraplateWhole Body Vibration

TheraPlate is similar in some ways to many of the Whole Body Vibration (WBV) technologies that are gaining in popularity. Theraplate provides a ZERO impact experience, so the equine athlete gets the benefits without further injury or aggravating existing conditions.

A partial list of the benefits of use include:

  • Increased Bone Density & Muscle Mass
  • Increased Joint Mobility & Flexibility – In Many Cases Horses No Longer Need Joint Supplements or Injections
  • Increases Circulation
  • Improves Balance
  • Faster Healing Through Increased Production of ATP (30 days becomes 15-20 Days)
  • Reduces Swelling & Inflammation
  • Horses On Stall Rest Can Maintain Muscle and Bone Density Without Risk of Further Injury
  • Horse that are Stalled for Other Reasons Can Get Same Benefits
  • Pre Performance – Warm Up
  • Post Performance – Warm Down
  • Increased Hoof Growth
  • Increased Digital Cushion Circulation
  • Founder
  • Hoof Issues
  • Laminitis
  • OCD
  • Suspensory Issues
  • Under Run Heels
  • Thin Soles
  • Bucked Shins
  • Speed Fracture Healing

Magna Wave
Magna WavePEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field) Therapy

Magna Wave PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field) Therapy is widely used in the conditioning of race, performance and pleasure horses around the world. The therapy serves to help regenerate damaged or diseased tissue, repair tendons and fractured bones.

It enhances the synthesis of protein in the cells, which allows the body to take full advantage of all the protein available. Circulation is improved, not by increasing heartbeat or blood pressure, but by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries. During treatment the Lymphatic system is stimulated to clean damaged areas and detoxify the body.

Magna Wave PEMF therapy also increases blood oxygen at the cellular level. Studies have shown that oxygen partial pressure can be increased by as much as 200%. The improved blood flow, increased blood oxygen and lymphatic cleansing reduce pain and inflammation, buildup of lactic acid and improve the overall healing capabilities.

Magna Wave PEMF, because of its deep penetration is particularly effective in relieving deep muscle soreness. The therapy is noninvasive, and no medication is required as a pretreatment for therapy.

Delivering dry cold and active compression, Game Ready Equine utilizes the same physical therapy and athletic training principles relied on by human athletes, calling for the use of RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). Veterinarians have reported success with the following treatment protocols.

  • Abrasion
  • Big Knees / Epiphysitis
  • Bowed Tendon
  • Bucked Shins
  • Capped Hock
  • Cellulitis
  • Check Ligament
