LEG WRAPS

Activo-Med leg wraps are supplied in pairs and are available with pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy, massage therapy or a combination of the two.

Description

The control box and battery is attached to the surcingle provided. Leg wrap cables are plugged into the control box which is supplied with pre-set programs and settings, but these can be adjusted to suit the horses requirements.

The leg wraps can be bought as a ‘system’ which includes a control box, battery and charger or they can be bought as components if you already own an Activo-Med rug, as they will run off the same control box.

For tendon and ligament strains kicks, bumps and bruises, stiffness and arthritis, general prevention and recovery post exercise.

How it works?

Components

The Control Box

The Combi Pro 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 Pro System (the combined PEMF and Massage therapy system)

PEMF & Combi Leg Wraps

Pecdominal Pad

Wave-Light-Pulse Equipment

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. These can be purchased with the Blanket or at a later stage, contact us for package prices.

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

General Information

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.
