The ABCO is an advanced faradic machine which works on your horse’s muscle tone and elasticity by contracting and relaxing the muscle in a rhythmical fashion. This increases the blood circulation, brings oxygen to the site, and waste tissue products are cleaned away. Scar tissue and adhesions are gradually broken down which promotes healing and correct muscle function. Muscle wastage is prevented if treatment occurs soon after the injury.
During our recent visit to South Africa we acquired a second, more advanced machine which has different sized applicators allowing treatments to the smaller more sensitive areas such as the face and legs.
Another aspect of Hi-Performance Equine Therapy is to design a program for rehabilitation supporting the ABCO therapy, involving stretches and exercises to maximize the healing and strengthening process.
The results can also mean an increase in the horses stride length, improved range of motion of various joints and increased suppleness.
The Electro-Magnetic Therapy Blanket
The Bemer 3000. Bemer is an acronym and stands for, Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Regulation, The therapy is a special type of electro magnetic field therapy and represents a high-efficacy treatment for a large number of chronic ailments. BEMER therapy represents a new, EMERGING MEDICINE, which will become main stream for reasons articulated below.
The simple, but profound, introduction of the revolutionary BEMER pulse developed by Professor Dr Wolf A Kafka of Germany, represents a dramatic breakthrough in the efficacy of electro magnetic field therapy devices. Conventional electro magnetic field therapy devices make use of a sinusoidal, trapeze or rectangular wave shape pulse. The later pulses are applied ailment-specific and as much as these relatively simple pulses treat only a part of the organism as we know. The BEMER pulse however, consists of a 2000 times broader spectrum of electro magnetic frequencies and treats the complete organism in a concurrent manner irrespective of the indication. Specific frequency adjustments are unnecessary as the BEMER treats all cellular energy-related dysfunctions simultaneously.
By understanding the needs of the organism to balance and equalize all energy deficits wherever they may occur in the body, an effective bio electro magnetic energy regulation ( B.E.M.E.R ), is achieved with the BEMER 3000. Each organism strives to maintain life and health and to this end, a biological system has to maintain a continuous appropriate energy balance to maintain its functions and optimum performance. The objective of biologically effective and supportive electro magnetic fields is to assist the enablement of regulation of the body's health energy parameters. The insufficiency of this energy balance over time results in chronic ailments and dysfunctions. In this case the organism is not able to muster sufficient self regulatory means to mobilise the immune system to fight and eliminate dysfunctions, biological intruders (such as bacteria and viruses) as well as all sorts of chronic ailments.

Jack's whirlpool tabulator boots
Jacks Whirlpool Boots from the USA - a world renown hydrotherapy therapeutic system, with 360 degree perforated inner tube the compressor produces an aeration around the entire foot & coronet that massages up the lower limb through the fetlocks and knees, reducing swelling, inflammation and aiding in injury recovery and prevention. Water depth and temperature can be varied with ice, and medication (water-soluble) or salts can be added, the compressor is quiet enough not to disturb the horse or cause anxiety, these boots can be fitted to the front and back legs.
The compressor allows the water to circulate to ensure a continuous cool temperature and also an increase in circulation. Nothing beats a good spa session to help sooth and recover these working legs
Adjustable over straps & clips help secure the boots whilst in use.
GPS Heart Rate Monitors Combined with Speed and Distance
The importance of the preparation that occurs at home is very high, and with the newest technology to assist, it is easier to judge the fitness level of the athlete and also how well the horse handles its exercise. These devices are the most complete training system for horses available, our stable is equipped with three complete kits. It is an evolution of the "human" training system and requires a good understanding of all the functions. These monitors, combined with G3 GPS transmitters, enables us to record the speed and distance in real time, together with the heart rate and recovery time.
Monitoring our horse’s heart rate gives us a genuine competitive advantage. By following and analyzing the heart rates along with speed and distance, we get to know our horses much better and train them so that they stay healthy and achieve their best. Monitoring our horse's heart rates have a number of benefits for our horses and our owners alike.
With the heart rate monitors, we can adjust each training session to the suitable level of intensity for each individual horse, which is the most important and efficient ingredient in any trainers program. Monitoring our horses heart rate is easy, and there is no discomfort to our horses. It’s the best way to keep them happy and healthy, and ensure that they, too, enjoy their training.
Several of the most common applications of laser therapy for the treatment of lameness disorders include:
All athletes have to endure the rigors of training. This training results in pain and soreness. Periodic therapeutic laser applications allow these equine athletes to recover faster and therefore train more efficiently.
The ability to use laser therapy to prevent injuries is often overlooked or even considered non-efficacious. How important would it be to establish blood flow and elasticity within the tissues of the suspensory tendon in an equine athlete predisposed to stress in this area before a competitive event? Deep-penetrating laser therapy accomplishes this therapeutic goal.
ICEVIBE - Circulation Therapy Boots
ICE-VIBE boots are portable massage boots with hot/cold inserts to create warm or cold circulation treatments that can be used before or after exercise or during rehabilitation.
The ICE-VIBE boots have cold packs in them that reduces blood flow slowing down inflammation whilst the movement created by the massaging effect similar to exercise can help to stimulate the lymph system to move out existing inflammation.
the boots are designed to cool the tissues via the cold packs and slow down the blood flow to reduce inflammation, but when combined with the massage the blood flow is not completely restricted, this allows oxygen to be maintained to the tired and damaged tissues allowing for a better and faster recovery.
