Arc Equine

The Arcequine is wearable, drug-free, non-invasive and portable pain management and tissue repair system based on micro current application.

The Arcequine turbocharges the ATP production by up to 500% when the body is least able to by replicating the body’s own bioelectrical signals. This kick-starts the body’s recovery allowing pain reduction and healing to start early. This can shorten healing time by up to 50%.

The device doesn’t have to be applied to a specific area as the micro-current spreads through the entire body. Treatment time is approximately 3 hours per day, so more horses can be treated using one device. The device runs the selected programme and switches off when finished.
The Arcequine increases the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP is responsible for the flow of vital nutrients in and out of each cell. Injury decreases the amount of ATP produced resulting in the accumulation of metabolic by-products and inflammatory factors. Inflammation is perceived by the body as pain.

The technology can also very effectively be implemented in the management of your equine athlete on the way to, during and after shows. The processes initiated by the micro current programs will lead to soft tissue preparation prior to performance, less lactic acid built up in muscles and reduction of post performance inflammation and pain.

What is Microcurrent?

Microcurrent introduces very low-level electrical currents into your body through 2 electrode pads applied to the skin. What is a microcurrent we hear you ask? At its simplest, a microcurrent is an electrical current measured in millionths of an amp or µA. It’s perfectly safe and can’t be felt, in the same way you can’t feel your body’s own natural bio-currents because they are similar in strength. How is this possible? The aim of Microcurrent is to support and aid the body’s own natural healing process. Microcurrents occur naturally within the body and they are vital for the production of ATP which moves essential substances in and out of the cells, while simultaneously boosting the body’s absorption of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), which are an essential component of tissue repair.

What is ATP?

Apart from being a killer word in Scrabble, ATP is Adenosine Triphosphate. This is the molecule used by all living cells to provide a constant supply of energy which enables them to carry out all necessary cellular functions.  ATP is formed from an Adenosine molecule with three phosphate molecules bonded to it, hence the ‘tri’ in the name.The energy stored in ATP is released when the bond holding the third phosphate molecule to the rest of the ATP molecule is broken. The product of this process is Adenosine DiPhosphate (ADP) and a separate phosphate molecule (Pi). During cellular respiration, the bond between this phosphate and the ADP is re-made, thus reforming a molecule of ATP.  In this way, ATP in our cells is constantly being broken down and re-formed in order to provide them with an unending energy source.

How it Works:

For us, what an ArcEquine does isn’t the most impressive part. It was the years of inventive development and research, producing the 120 prototypes to test and refine it and the massive investment needed to make something so complicated so simple. ArcEquine is a wearable, non-invasive, drug free device. On one hand it’s the same size as the smaller disposable devices, yet can be charged and is far more sophisticated. It’s the very best of both worlds, without compromise. Packing all of that into something barely larger than a credit card was quite a task. All you have to do is select a program, put on the device, and walk away.
