Yes, we have a wide range of clients and we have experience with horses off all ages, performance levels and disciplines
Our company is focused on the prevention, diagnosis, rehabilitation and management of equine tendon and ligament injuries. We also offer products and services for other soft tissue injuries like muscle and fascia.
Like with everything when dealing with a horse; nothings is cheap, but we are able to offer economic viable solutions. As every case is different and we operate in very different geographical areas, it is hard to give exact pricing. To give an indication; boot rental is around €300-400, UTC scan €250-350, thermal imaging assessment €65-150, and shockwave €95 - 150. All services are offered at discounted package prices and are customised to the needs of your horse.
Since the start of our company, we have carried out guided rehabilitation using UTC and Dynamic Support Boot on over 500 horses. The DSS has been used for over 30.000 days in active rehabilitation.
Absolutely! We encourage working together with vets, physiotherapists and farriers. Most of our clients start with bringing us in contact with the vet, or forward their vets findings, scans and treatments.
Yes, most of our agents are “mobile”, our services are offered online and products are transported by courier.
The average rental is 3 months. This is normally the time it takes to move from stable/hand walking to ridden walk/trot/canter exercise. We also often use the device for small or subclinical injuries to avoid deterioration and then often 1 month rental is sufficient
This obviously varies depending on the nature of the scan and the extent of injury. On average we can guide rehabilitation or monitor a horse during a season with 4-6 scans.
On average we are successful in 70-80% of the cases. This means we see the horse back on pre-injury or higher level.
Our protocols are based on maximum mobility and loading of the tendon in the first 3 months. This does not mean the horse is “fixed” after 3 months, but the majority of the important fibre organisation is done. Depending on the case, another 3-6 months is required to mature the injury and train the horse back in work.
The device is a precision instrument that needs regular service and the main component needs to be checked and replaced on regular intervals.
