Before competing, vibration therapy provides an optimal substitute to a traditional warm up. Using this alternative allows muscles to be stimulated and prepared for significant movement without the substantial energy exertion that comes with traditional exercises.
If an injury does occur and a horse is unable to exercise, a decrease in bone density is likely to occur. Horses experience a loss of minerals because they are lacking stimulation to the bones to signal a need to retain these minerals. EquiVibe vibration therapy provides significant stimulus to the bones and helps prevent loss of bone density during prolonged periods of inactivity.

One of the immediate effects of Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is improved circulation of both blood and lymph. Anything that can improve circulation is of significant benefit to the equine athlete, and the total horse population. Increased blood flow improves oxygenation of the tissues, removal of toxins and metabolic waste, and enhances the body's ability to heal itself, drug free. Designed to increase bone density, reduce muscle soreness and inflammation.
