HORSE GYM is currently being used by top veterinarians across the United States as part of their rehabilitation programs. Some of the many benefits of having a HORSE GYM in a Veterinary Practice include: diagnosis, rehabilitation in a safe environment, a shock-absorbent belt - perfect for nearly all recovering leg injuries, and as an alternate service - providing 'prevention maintenance' for your customer base and increasing the opportunities for new clients.
HORSE GYM is the perfect solution if you want to:
- Retrain an injured horse.
- Improve flexibility & strength of the back & hindquarter muscles of your horse.
- Build up the top line of the horse.
- Get a young horse started.
- Keep your competition horse in shape.
- Have an accurate observation for medical or farrier purposes on the way each horse is walking / stepping.
HORSE GYM is certified to meet or exceed international safety standards. Veterinary surgeon Dr Rodiger Brems, who has contributed to the development of the HORSE-GYM says this about the training machine: It is a perfect solution for building up the swing of the horse's back, its carrying capacity and balance. It turns out that at least 75% of the swing of the back is lost when saddle and rider get on a horse. Therefore, it is important to have the muscles in the back strengthened on a regular basis, and with the HORSE-GYM,they will be. Retraining horses after injuries on a HORSE GYM Treadmill assures safe rehabilitation in a very controlled environment.
"The difference between the horses who use the treadmill versus those who don't is extreme. The important muscles in the back of the horse are being strengthened properly, allowing for muscle relaxation and less tightness. This provides increased swing, carrying capacity and balance that are lost when a saddle and rider get on the horse. The horses using the HORSE GYM treadmill have an increased performance level and are less prone to stress and injury. "
Steve Engle, D.V.M.:
"HORSE GYM has become a vital part of our rehabilitation program. It allows us to begin reconditioning and strengthening horses that have just undergone surgery, combining controlled exercise with consistent speed and surface. The treadmill allows you to maximize your equine athlete's aerobic capacity as well as the ability to work on an incline to strengthen and add tone to your horse's back and hindquarters. In the past year and a half we have accommodated over 3,500 horses safely on our treadmill. I recommend HORSE GYM to my clients."
Haynes Stevens, D.V.M.:
"HORSE GYM has been a very important part of the exercise program in horses recovering from soft tissue injuries. It provides controlled, passive exercise allowing the horse to maintain muscle fitness while recovering from injury. I think HORSE GYM has the most important components of a successful training and physiotherapeutic machine: shock absorbing surface, controlled environment, passive exercise and one hundred percent customizable for the needs of each horse. Worth every penny!!!"
Alex Rey, D.V.M.:
"The HORSE GYM treadmill is an integral part of our rehabilitation of lame horses. It is the best form of controlled exercise. Every horse loves going on the treadmill."
Fernando Cardenas, D.V.M.:
"One of the best investments in rehabilitation equipment I have made."
Robert 'Tip' Fisher, D.V.M.:
"Equine veterinary practicesspecializing in competition horses benefit greatly from having a HORSE GYM treadmill as part of their rehabilitation program."
