Horses get patch to ease pain (US)


SCOTTSDALE, AZ–(MARKET WIRE)–Jan 27, 2009 — A therapy that has been used for many decades on humans to reduce pain and swelling has now been miniaturized into a small, wearable patch that can be used on horses and pets. The patches will be on view this week at the Dynamite Horseman Supply (DHS) trailer at the Sun Circuit Show in Scottsdale, Arizona.

PEMF, Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field, has traditionally been administered using very large, high-powered machines which require visits to vets and/or therapists. The HealFast™ patch provides a way for vets and therapists to extend the treatment in a patch that owners can take home and apply themselves.

The device is designed to conform to the horse’s body to enhance ease of use and comfort. HealFast is available in two versions. The reusable version allows for the unit to be turned off when not in use to extend battery life. This version is designed to be used multiple times on either one or more horses. The second version is a single use post-operative version intended to reduce pain, eliminate swelling and accelerate healing following surgical incisions. Yahoo Biz >>
