Our product range first started with the design and manufacture of our Big Red Rug Dryers, a very successful product which continues to grow year on year. The product was designed for today’s larger and heavier rugs and is manufactured out of large bore piping. This helps increase heat flow and allows for efficient and reliable heat distribution to your rug.
Our Equestrian Solariums are designed to the perfect unit radius, enabling them to wrap your horse in therapeutic light and heat without the need for excessive redundant space. They are fitted with ultra-modern, short-wave halogen infrared bulbs making them the most efficient and quality of light therapy available in the UK market.
A HEALTHY HORSE IS A HAPPY HORSE
LIGHT THERAPY EXPLAINED
Light therapy, also known as photo therapy uses a combination of super luminous (visible) and infra-red (invisible) light to treat damaged skin as well as problems with muscles, tendons, bones and ligaments. The treatment works by stimulating the blood supply in a targeted area; providing oxygen and nutrients to the damaged tissue. It also stimulates the lymphatic system enabling waste products to be removed more quickly.
It is well known that humans need light to maintain their mental and physical health. The effects of ‘lack of light’ is commonly known as SAD syndrome and light boxes are used in order to aid in the treatment of depression. Studies carried out on horses showed similar results. Controlled experiences with stabled horses have shown that horses exposed to light therapy for 1 hour per day maintain their ability and attitude during darker months. This study was carried out at Nottingham University.
