ACTIVO-MED COMBI HOOF BOOTS
(Pulsed Electromagnetic & Massage)
The Activo-Med Hoof Boot can be used for foot conditions, including:
- Inflammation / Swelling
- Ligament or tendon damage
Like the other Activo-Med systems, the Hoof Boots have preset therapy programmes. They are available as 'add-ons' for people with Activo-Med rugs or as Hoof Boot systems which include the control box, battery, charger, surcingle and transport bag.
The boot is operated from a control box and rechargeable battery that attaches to the horse's surcingle. From here, any of the preset programmes can be selected.
The Hoof Boot is simply strapped on to the horse's hoof, so it's really simple to use.

Systems are also available to hire or hire/purchase. Payment terms can be arranged by discussion.
WILLIAM FOX-PITT says: "We have found the boots very useful for helping eliviate the effects of bruising and jarring. We find the horses seem to get used to the feeling quickly."

"Managing the physical wellbeing of my horses is an important aspect of keeping them on the road. The ActivoMed rug plays an important role in ensuring we prevent and manage muscle soreness proactively leaving me with the peace of mind to focus on helping them give of their best in training and competition."
The Hoof Boots are available to buy or hire in pairs or as a single boot.
If you already own an Activo-Med system then they will run off your existing control box and can be purchased as a single component.
If you do not already own an Activo-Med system then the hoof boots can be bought with a control box, battery and charger.

HOW IT WORKS
One control box operates both Pulsed Electromagnetic and Massage in one combined therapy session. You only have to choose one of the preset programme sequences and the multi-session starts leaving you free to carry out other tasks without having to stand with the horse.
The Control Box
The Hoof Boot System is operated with a specially designed multi-function control box based on the latest micro processor technology. Together with the lightweight battery unit, the control box is put in a small plastic wallet and secured directly on the top of the rug.
The programmable microprocessor offers a large range of options to create individual therapy programs. The therapy time, frequency and intensity can be easily changed. Even the duration of each individual massage line can be adjusted.
The PEMF spools and massage modules in the blanket, boots and probe connect to the back of the central control unit which plugs into the battery. The battery has a simple on/off button and lasts for approximately 15-20 treatments before recharging is required.
The boots are made from Goretex with a strong rubber base. They fix to the leg using elastic sticky straps. They cover the hoof up to the fetlock joint. They are easy to use and offer a wide spectrum of treatments. Each boot contains 2 magnetic spools and 2 massage units which work together to improve circulation to this area.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) uses a range of frequencies and intensities to stimulate different cells in the body. This helps to promote cells with different functions to work more efficiently. The effectiveness of PEMF therapy has been FDA approved and is widely used by well-known organisations such as the NHS as well as by vets and physiotherapists.
All electromagnetic fields are charged with energy generated by electric current: where current flows, magnetism develops.
The components are put directly on the horse’s body. The PEMF rug, boots and probe contain copper spools that create magnetic fields with electric power supplied by the battery provided.
The equipment comes in a robust carrying bag for storage and transportation.
The 4 important factors for successful therapy sessions are:
The Combi+System enables these 4 factors to be regulated and combined with each other.
When not to use PEMF:
The equipment should be stored and operated in a dry place.
