How the Equine Therapy Wrap was born…

The story begins when our own show jumping horse “Javelin” had a slip on landing and sustained a lesion in his medial suspensory ligament.

Through treatment with the Red Light Therapy Wrap he healed in remarkable time (the treating veterinarian stated “whatever you are doing keep doing it as this is a remarkable rate of recovery”). This horse got back to jumping 1.30m and stayed 100% sound for the rest of his career.

During his term of recovery I also sustained a severe injury from a skiing accident. The diagnosis was a ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament, sustained grade 3 tears to the medial collateral ligament, grade 2 tears to the lateral collateral ligament, bruising on the tibial plateau, and tearing of the gastrocnemius & semimembranosus tendon.

After consulting an orthopaedic surgeon I undertook the non-surgical option. Within 3 months I was successfully back on the horse, within 12 months the knee was essentially back to its original full strength and flexibility.

Yes – I followed correct treatment protocol of bracing the leg for 6 weeks, controlled stretching and strengthening work when time appropriate for such an injury – but I also relied heavily on the Red Light Therapy Wrap. The pad was applied twice daily for between 20 to 30 minutes each session. So – nothing like a bit of first-hand experience to put products to the test!

Since this time we have worked with engineers to continually refine our products for both equine, canine and human use. The Red Light Therapy Wraps are engineered to give maximum safe power output at known therapeutic wavelengths. The housing design ensures maximum flexibility and long term robustness for use on horses. Indeed we pioneered the use of a “pocket housed” lithium ion battery to make the pads as user friendly as possible.

Our research is continuous – as are the results and testimonials. As technology develops – so do our products.

Enjoy the results of our labour & love of animals, and yourself!
