EquiVibe, a platform that produces whole body vibration (not just limited to the human body) produces an innovative treatment that has been successful for animal therapy, health, fitness, and prevention of injuries. Significant research has confirmed the positive effects of vibration technology for horses in therapy, competition, or training at all levels. Also, for horses in confinement, it is beneficial for them to receive muscle vibration and stimulation for a lack of exercise.
Horses that have used the EquiVibe have taken to it very quickly. They look forward to their session. They step up on the EquiVibe platform willingly and stand quietly for the 10 to 15 minute sessions. On the EquiVibe, vibration therapy has been proven an effective tool for rehabilitation of injuries and general fitness improvement, regardless of breed, size, or age. The EquiVibe can be placed on any flat surface.
Even the healthiest animals can benefit from time on the EquiVibe vibration platform, which helps them to relax and build muscle. It has also shown to increase energy, improve flexibility, and calm nerves. EquiVibe provides the best quality plate for equine performance and rehabilitation in the world, with a proven track record. It is available in a steel version, and aluminum. Customers who have bought the steel plate typically like to keep their EquiVibe in a stationary location like veterinarians, rehab centres, layup facilities, etc.
Our aluminum plate is great for those who compete, such as at the track, rodeo, hunter/jumpers, dressage, etc. They like the fact that they can take it on the road with them when they travel. It is easy to pick up and go with wheels on one end.
Before competing, vibration therapy provides an optimal substitute to a traditional warm-up. Using this alternative allows muscles to be stimulated and prepared for significant movement without the substantial energy exertion that comes with traditional exercises. If an injury does occur and a horse is unable to exercise, a decrease in bone density is likely to occur. Horses experience a loss of minerals because they are lacking stimulation to the bones to signal a need to retain these minerals. However, this may be prevented with the use of EquiVibe vibration therapy, which provides significant stimulus to the bones and helps prevent loss of bone density during prolonged periods of inactivity.
