Using the Activo-Med Blanket for Recovery and Prevention after Exercise

Not only can the Activo-Med Pulsed Electromagnetic and Massage Blanket be used to improve flexibility, suppleness and therefore performance as a pre-exercise modality, it can also be used for post exercise recovery and rehabilitation. Every recovery session combines both the PEMF and Massage set at the appropriate therapeutic levels to aid recovery but also prevention.

The PEMF and massage blanket has a selection of pre-set programs for both pre-warm and post exercise. This allows you to choose the most appropriate session for your individual horses needs ensuring the most suitable frequencies and intensities are used so you get the best results. Simply select the session and let your horse enjoy his therapy whilst you carry on with your jobs.

How does PEMF aid recovery?

The body is made up of numerous cells, all of which need energy to function. Energy is dynamic and has a frequency, which changes all the time. All energy is electromagnetic by nature and all cells produce their own electromagnetic fields. This means that nothing in the body happens without an electromagnetic exchange (trillions of cells communicating via electromagnetic frequencies). Damaged cells will not have their correct electromagnetic field and their metabolic processes will be impaired.

This is where PEMF comes in

PEMF helps restore the cells electromagnetic fields and their metabolic processes. The PEMF uses the magnetic pulses it creates to induce tiny electrical signals that stimulate the cell to repair, up-regulating the cells naturally generated energy and allowing them to heal themselves.

The PEMF also has an effect on the cells membrane channels (these control what enters and leaves the cell). It opens up these channels allowing more nutrients into the cell and waste products out, helping to restore the cells optimum balance. If enough cells are restored then they will work more efficiently.

Cells of the same types come together to make tissues and these tissues come together to make organs. So by restoring or maintaining cell function, organ function will also be restored or maintained allowing the body to function better.

The massage in the blanket aids the recovery process by having a two-fold response;aids reduction of heart

– rate and breathing rate – relaxation

– increases lymphatic circulation.

Combining both the PEMF and Massage will aid a faster recovery post exercise for our horses, aiding them in their performance and their general wellbeing.
