EQUINE GAIT ANALYSIS, REHABILITATION MONITORING & PERFORMANCE PROFILING

The GaitSmart Pegasus sensor-based equine movement analysis system enables the monitoring of gait and changes in limb movements for equines. Gait analysis is ideal for monitoring rehabilitation and can be made available to other equine professionals. Improvements in range of movement can be shown by comparing the latest gait analysis data.

The system records the range of movement in the sagittal plane (forwards and backwards) and the coronal plane (side to side) and analyses the symmetry of all limbs.

• How does your horse move (this will be your baseline for movement)?
• How do the limbs move in relation to each another?
• Is your training affecting the movement of your horse?
• How is your horse recovering from injury?
• Understand how your horse moves with no rider influence?

TheraPlate Vortex Wave Therapy System at Equipoise Performance

THERAPLATE VORTEX WAVE THERAPY SYSTEM

The TheraPlate utilizes a low - amplitude orbital motion. Designed by experts and is the result of 30 years of experience. The platform’s motion causes the muscles to rhythmically contract and release, relaxing the tissues while enhancing muscle tone and increasing circulation.

The increased circulation has a range of benefits, from improved healing rates of many soft tissue injuries to better hoof growth, to increase bone density.

Rehabilitation:

  • Aids in reducing swelling & inflammation in joints, muscles & tendons.
  • Improves joint health and function.
  • Increases the speed of a fracture healing, with zero impact experience.
  • Increased circulation improves the healing rate of soft tissue injuries, ligaments and tendons, and increased hoof growth.

ARCEQUINE MICROCURRENT THERAPY

ArcEquine is the smallest microcurrent device in the world. It is a wearable, completely drug free, non-invasive pain management and tissue repair system that mimics the body's electrical biocurrents in order to boost the production of ATP within the body's cells. ATP is the energy component of the cells and is responsible for the flow of nutrients.

Injury, disease or tissue damage disrupts the normal electrical currents within the cells and decreases the rate of ATP production. Microcurrent stimulation increases ATP production by up to 500% kick starting and accelerating the body's own recovery, allowing for the reduction of pain and inflammation, and for healing to start earlier.

• Increase ATP
• Increase Protein Synthesis
• Reduce Inflammation

EQUINE THERMOGRAPHY

COMING SOON !

Thermographic imaging, a non-invasive, safe monitoring tool, able to detect minute differences in the horse’s thermal and neural condition, and identify areas of asymmetrical thermal patterns. Used under strict environmental protocol conditions, thermal imaging is able to detect damage in structures up to three weeks before there are any clinical signs of lameness.

Rehabilitation:
Used as a monitoring tool for horse’s recovering from injury, before bringing the horse back into work or training and monitor horses during work.

Competition:
Used as a preventative tool in the training and performance of the horse used on a regular basis throughout the competition season, to monitor the horse’s performance and identify any areas of concerns.
