New Equilibrium Therapy Hind & Hock Magnetic Chaps
The new Hind & Hock Magnetic Therapy Chaps are soft magnetic stable chaps, ergonomically designed to fit horses’ hind legs.
Providing cover from hock to heel, the Hind & Hock Magnetic Chaps are ideal for horses that suffer with arthritis of the hock, or are prone to fluid filled legs in the stable. Supplied with magnets that can be placed around the lower parts of the hock, which is the common location for hock joint arthritis.
Equilibrium Therapy Hind & Hock Boots can be worn in the stable overnight, or during the day to help horses that suffer from arthritis, or are recovering from injury by increasing blood flow, reduce filling, and promoting healing.
Ideal for horses with tendon problems, splints, navicular, bone chips, and general knocks, bumps and scars.
When to use Magnetic Chaps?
- For horses who suffer with arthritis
- When horses get fluid filled legs in the stable
- For horses who are recovering from tendon problems, splints, navicular, bone chips and general knocks and bumps
- When on box rest or stand in for long periods of time
- For horses in high levels of work to encourage repair
Ever wondered how Magnetic Therapy works?
The body’s cells have electromagnetic properties which means they can be energised by a magnetic field. Magnetic Therapy encourages blood flow and increases cellular activity in the body however, magnets in themselves, do not heal. When a powerful magnet is placed against the body, cellular activity is increased, and this in turn increases the rate at which cells regenerate and repair.
How does Magnetic Therapy help horses?
Magnetic therapy can help to increase the rate of healing when treating inflammation, swelling, stiffness, muscle cramps and the symptoms of arthritis. Using magnetic therapy can help the horse recover more quickly from injury or a chronic condition.
Why does Equilibrium use Vitaflex® magnets?
Vitaflex® magnets present two alternating poles to the body, negative and positive, making them more effective as Neodymium magnets, which present only one pole. These strong, circular and permanent magnetic fields of alternating poles sequences penetrate deep into the body tissue keeping the cells in an active regenerating state.
