Magnetic Therapy Pastern Wraps by Equine Balance

 

Magnetic therapy for horses is simple and easy to apply using the Equine Balance Magnetic Therapy range.

10 therapeutic strength magnets can be applied to the horse's lower limb where needed by attaching them in the required location and orientation to the Equine Balance Pastern Wraps.

 

Magnetic therapy is a non invasive, drug free method used to promote healing, boost circulation, and support joint mobility. It is proposed that the body cells respond positively to the magnetic field emitted by therapy magnets promoting optimal conditions for cellular processes and healing. Placing magnets in close proximity to the surface of the skin can help the body to maintain health and well being.

 

Uses:
•    Every day as part of the horses’ daily routine for maintaining limb and joint health.
•    For veterans or horses who are stiff, have arthritic joints or limited mobility. 
•    Under veterinary guidance for rehabilitation and recovery following treatment for lower limb and hoof issues and conditions.
•    To reduce filled legs and encourage circulation and lymphatic function.
•    During turnout (ground conditions permitting), for horses standing in, over night, on box rest or during travel.

 

About the Pastern Wraps:

Equine Balance Magnetic Pastern Wraps have been designed to meet 3 essential magnetic therapy treatment parameters:

 

1. The magnets are positioned close to the skin - no matter what type of magnetic device you decide to use magnets must be in close contact to the body for the magnetic field to penetrate the tissue at a therpeutic intensity. Equine Balance place the magnets in thin, flexible sleeves ensuring a close contact.

 

2. The magnets are therapeutic strength and penetrate the tissue to the required depth - not all magnets produce magnetic fields of equal power or size. Equine Balance use therapeutic strength magnets manufactured from N42 high grade neodymium and pair the magnets to achieve a surface gauss strength of 2,000G per pair with a magnetic field that spans 280mm.

 

3. The magnets can be configured in either bipolar or multipolar arrays to generate magnetic field of different properties. A bipole array will produce a magnetic field with increased depth of penetrtion (useful when you want to target deeper body tissue), and a multipole array will produce a more shallow field type but with a steeper gradient which can increase magnetic activity close to the magnet.

 

The pastern wraps come with the 'Essential Guide to Equine Magnetic Therapy' which is designed to cover a basic understanding about magnetic fields and their application to the body.

 

Magnetic Pastern Wraps are a popular treatment method for horses that are turned out in the field or on box rest during the warmer months.

 

The pastern wraps can be positioned either above or below the fetlock and to either fore or hind limbs.

 

Positioning the wraps above the fetlock is indicated for turnout purposes, whereas the wraps can be used in either position over night when stabled.

 

The magnetic pastern wraps are non heating and designed to provide a combination of light supportive compression with a therapeutic strength magnetic field to the lower limb.

 

 

About the Magnets:

Each light weight yet powerful magnet is manufactured to therapeutic specifiction from N42 Neodymium, and has marked polarity enabling the magnets to be configured into bipolar or mulipolar magnetic arrays. Each magnet pair has a surface gauss strength of 2,000G and emits a magnetic field spanning 280mm. The magnets can be positioned as required - using either a bipolar array to achieve deep tissue penetration, or a multipole array which produces a steep magnetic field gradient - believed to offer enhanced therapeutic effects.

 

The Equine Balance Therapy Magnets are inserted into the detachable, flexible sleeves - allowing the magnets to sit close to the skin where the magnetic field is strongest. Using the protective sleeves allows both the wraps and magnet holders to be washed easily when required.

    I have used the stable boots to good effect but was looking for something that I could use during turnout. I was very pleased when the pastern wraps were launched and I have been using these during turnout and sometimes in the stable when the weather is warmer.
