Electromagnetic Therapy Now Available In Convenient Patch For Horses

January 28, 2009 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

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.

One of the leading equine treatment centers, Equine Veterinary Associates, has been testing the product with positive results. Van E. Snow, D.V.M. of Equine Veterinary Associates reported that he was pleased with the device’s effectiveness.

“I recommend the use of the HealFast Therapy Patch to treat acute and chronic soft tissue injuries,” Dr. Snow said. “I have found the patch to reduce pain and inflammation which therefore promotes a healthier environment for healing to take place. The patch is more user friendly than other pulsed electromagnetic field modalities that are available today. The HealFast Therapy Patch is an important new tool with which I am able to speed the recovery of my equine patients.”

Mac Stein is a physical therapist who has also tested the patch. He said, “The ease of use and low cost of these disposable medical devices are ideal for the strenuous demands of training and showing the western performance horse.” Mac Stein will be available to speak with horse owners at the Sun Circuit Show.

The company said that earlier PEMF therapy delivery systems required cumbersome devices or repeated office visits. The HealFast Therapy patch which is priced at $79.95 costs only a few dollars a day for a convenient, small, lightweight device.

eMarkets Group markets and sells the product through veterinarians and therapists and is working with them for safe and effective use. HealFast Therapy was developed and manufactured by BioElectronics Corporation, (PINKSHEETS: BIEL) which has extensive worldwide patents and patents pending.
