Equilibrium Therapy Magnetic Back and Quarters Pad - new improved design for 2016. The new style Equilibrium Therapy Magnetic Back and Quarters Pad is designed to promote circulation to help relieve stiffness, muscle soreness and increase the speed of healing in horses’ backs. Recommended for use as part of a back maintenance programme.
- Contains 4 powerful VITAflex® magnets
- Removable magnets stick easily to any part of the inner lining
- Magnets can be positioned exactly where needed
- Protected inside waterproof pillow packs for easy washing
- Effective and easy to use
- Fits a wide range of horses and ponies
Our Magnetic Back and Quarters Pad is designed to offer effective, affordable and easy to use magnetic therapy for all horses and ponies.
The Equilibrium Therapy Magnetic Back and Quarters Pad works by the magnets having two poles, North and South which repel each other and in turn this increases the rate at which the cells regenerate and repair. This cell activity is what helps promote circulation and then relieve stiffness, muscle soreness and increase the speed of healing in horses’ backs.
The magnetic back pad is used when your horse is at rest. So is best left on over night or for a minimum of four hours if he is in his stable in the day. If the weather is particularly chilly then a stable rug can be worn above but the magnetic back pad may make your horse feel a bit warmer than normal.
It is easy to wash and dry and comes in a handy bag for storage. The magnets themselves can be attached to any part of the pad to ensure the magnet is reaching the areas where the treatment is needed the most.
New improved features:
- longer length with removable quarters pad
- new ergonomic shape for optimal fit
- comes with a modern & practical sports holdall
- 2 year product warranty
DID YOU KNOW? Combined use of the Equilibrium Therapy Magnetic Back Pad overnight and the Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad once a day can help to maintain a healthy back.
How does Magnetic Therapy work?
Magnetic Fields are the Core of Life: A magnetic field is at the very foundation of life on this planet. Millions of years ago when the first signs of life were emerging, the Earth’s geomagnetic field was perhaps hundreds of times stronger. Our bodies were developed in an environment rich in oxygen, water, nutrients, gravity and magnetism.
All of the body’s systems are electromagnetic in nature. The process of cell division, the very core of the living system, takes place due to magnetic energy.
A magnet has two poles, North and South. Opposite poles attract, and conversely like poles repel. When a magnet is placed against the body it will either attract those cells that are opposite or repel cells that are alike. In basic terms this increases activity of the cells which in turn increases the speed at which cells regenerate and repair.
Some magnets are more effective than others – why is this?
Most magnets are Neodymium and only present one pole to the body. This means they only repel or attract blood vessels of opposite charge to the magnet, making them half as effective. VITAflex® magnets (which are used in the Equilibrium Therapy range) are twice as effective as they present both positive and negative poles to the body. By encouraging the constant repelling or attracting the blood cells, VITAflex ® magnets are highly effective at keeping cells in an active regenerating state.
What makes VITAflex® magnets so effective?
VITAflex® magnets possess strong, circular and permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences which can penetrate deeply into the body tissue. When applied to a troubled area, minute electrical voltages are created. The electrically conductive blood moves within the blood vessels under alternating magnetic fields, therefore building up voltage and making the cells excited (this is known as the Hall effect). This excited state helps improve cell metabolism encouraging cells to regenerate much quicker.
In addition, they have a heat insulating structure in the form of extremely thin gold or platinum coloured aluminium reflector. This results in a slight local warming where the magnet touches the skin and dilation of the blood vessels, thereby improving circulation which accelerates the influx of nutrients and the removal of toxins.
Benefits of Magnetic Therapy:
Magnetic Therapy has been proven to have both positive effects in humans and animals in treating scar tissue, inflammation, reducing swelling, stiffness, muscle cramps and arthritis. The Equilibrium Therapy® from EQUILIBRIUM® uses VITAflex® magnets in their Magnetic Chaps and Magnetic Back Pad.
To date, no negative side effects are known from treatments with static magnetic fields in general and from VITAflex® in particular. However caution should be used by those people with electrical devices, such as pacemakers or hearing aids. It is also recommended that pregnant women or pregnant animals should avoid strong magnetic fields.
