The system contains 5 lines of strategically placed PEMF spools and 5 lines of massage modules. The control box on the rug activates these lines in the sequence of 1-2-3-5-4 (see picture at the top) giving a high support of the venous blood flow to the heart in conformity to the blood circulation and the lymphatic system. One control box operates both applications in one combined therapy session. You only have to choose one of the 8 preset programme sequences and the multi-session starts leaving you free to carry out other tasks without having to stand with the horse.

The Activo-Med Combi pro blanket provides pulsed electromagnetic (PEMF) and massage therapy across the horse from poll to tail including back, shoulder and thigh areas.

The blanket contains 19 strategically placed PEMF spools and 14 cyclonic massage modules over the main muscle groups that work as directed but the pre-programmed control box. The PEMF elements uses a range of selected therapeutic frequencies to help promote cell efficiency and recovery. The massage element gives high support of the venous blood flow to the heart in conformity to the blood circulation and the lymphatic system.

HOW IT WORKS

COMPONENTS

The Control Box

The Combi+System is operated with a specially designed multi-function control box based on the latest micro processor technology. Together with the lightweight battery unit, the control box is put in a small plastic wallet and secured directly on the top of the blanket.

This one control box operates the:

  • Combi+System (the combined PEMF and Massage therapy system)
  • Electromagnetic blanket system
  • PEMF boots
  • Flex massage system
  • Softlaser equipment

The programmable microprocessor offers a large range of options to create individual therapy programs. The therapy time, frequency and intensity can be easily changed. Even the duration of each individual massage line can be adjusted.

The PEMF spools and massage modules in the blanket, boots and probe connect to the back of the central control unit which plugs into the battery. The battery has a simple on/off button and lasts for approximately 15-20 treatments before recharging is required.

The Blanket

The Combi+System blanket with integrated neck part ensures complete stimulation. It is made from high quality materials chosen to enable practical use either in the stable or outside at competitions in all weather conditions. The blanket is lightweight, robust and cool: the cover is made from Goretex or fully mesh, depending on your preference, which allows air to circulate through the blanket during treatments and the sides are made from strong double sewn mesh. It has 5 fully adjustable clips, belly straps and a tail strap to ensure a snug and secure fit.

PEMF Boots

The boots are made from Goretex and fix to the leg like a travel boot using elastic Velcro. They cover from the sensitive part of the hoof up to the carpal joint. They are easy to use and offer a wide spectrum of treatment. Each boot contains 4 magnetic spools and works using the same principle as the rug: the 4 magnetic spools work in conformity to the natural flow of the blood- and lymph-lines in the legs. They are activated from the outside down to the inside up in the sequence 1-2-3-4 (see picture). Hind leg wraps are now also available.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) uses a range of frequencies and intensities to stimulate different cells in the body. This helps to promote cells with different functions to work more efficiently. The effectiveness of PEMF therapy has been FDA approved and is widely used by well-known organisations such as the NHS.

All electromagnetic fields are charged with energy generated by electric current: where current flows, magnetism develops.

The components are put directly on the horse’s body. The PEMF rug, boots and probe contain copper spools that create magnetic fields with electric power supplied by the battery provided.

The equipment comes in a robust carrying bag for storage and transportation.

The 4 important factors for successful therapy sessions are:

  • Intensity (Tesla)
  • Frequency (Hertz)
  • Time/duration (minutes)
  • Combination of treatments.

The Combi+System enables these 4 factors to be regulated and combined with each other.

When not to use PEMF:

  • During pregnancy
  • Severe fungal diseases
  • Epilepsy
  • Fever and tumour developments.

CLEANING

Stables and horses are not terribly clean. Don’t worry! The blanket and boots are washable at 30 degrees C. The components are self-contained and are easily removed for washing.

The equipment should be stored and operated in a dry place.
