Vitafloor & Solarium
VitaFloor ® vibrating floor systems are a safe and easy way to give a horse both a versatile physical training and a massage in one go. The VitaFloor’s vibrating floor increases and regenerates bone density (studies on humans have shown the increase to be up to 20%). It stimulates the blood flow throughout the horse’s entire body, is a non-invasive treatment helping with soft tissue injuries, joint and muscle soreness and significantly reduces recovery time from injury. Because it stimulates the blood circulation without the horse having to move, this makes it also a very effective therapy also for horses that are off work or on box rest. Other benefits include; fat mobilisation (yes – even for humans!), treatment of foot abscesses and bruises and has also been found it to be very effective on horses starting with colic.
Vitafloor® whole body vibration is natural and straightforward. The vertical vibrations generated imitate the gentle impact or concussion found in regular movement, just at a more consistent, greater frequency. These concussions, between thirty and fifty repetitions per second, are gentle enough to be soothing, but strong enough to reach up all the way through the body. These vibrations activate the various cardiovascular, pulmonary, and bio mechanical systems in the body which promote overall wellness; but can also help with targeted healing.
Situated in the same stable as and often used in conjunction with the Vitafloor, the Solarium facility can be used solely with infra read lights for penetrating and relaxing muscles or in conjunction with the Ultra Violet lights which mimic natural sun light – great for a horse’s wellbeing. Used together they produce a warming, relaxing environment which eases any soreness from the muscles of horses in hard work and are a great aid to helping horses maintain tip top condition
