The Pecdominal Pad, one of the most recent additions to the range, is the only product to apply these therapies to the pectoral and abdominal areas. When used in conjunction with other Activo-Med products, for example the Combi Pro rug and leg wraps, the Pecdominal Pad can provide an impressive all over therapy solution for the whole horse.
“This is a really well designed product that targets muscle groups that normal rugs can’t access,” said Serena Hickson from FMBs Therapy Systems. “It works well with the Activo-Med Combi Pro to provide massage and PEMF all over the horse’s body. When used with Activo-Med Leg Wraps and Hoof Boots, the coverage is even more extensive.”
The Pecdominal Pad fits around the chest and girth areas and is highly adjustable for the perfect fit. The product can be bought on its own with a massage and PEMF Back Pad as a full system, or as a component part if you already own another Activo-Med system. When bought as a system, the control box supplied contains preset programmes that apply different combinations of PEMF and massage to suit the horse’s needs.
Fred and Rowena Cook from Equine Management and Training use the Pecdominal Pad on horses in their rehabilitation and training yard. “The Pecdominal Pad is another excellent piece of kit from FMBs,” said Fred. “The combination of therapies makes it the perfect pre-exercise warm up and cool down tool for horses that are prone to tightness in the shoulder and/or chest area. It can also help target-treat muscle injuries and bruising incurred through falls or hitting fences. That we can use the Pecdominal Pad in conjunction with the leg wraps or boots in an added bonus.
“We have also found it useful for horses that have had gastric ulcers and, although the ulcers have been treated, still present sensitivity when girthed.”
The Activo-Med Pecdominal Pad is available to buy or hire. Payment terms available.
