Horsepower Plate

A reasonably new addition to the Equine Industry, vibrating plates are already proving to be a very useful and beneficial therapy in rehabilitation and the well-being of horses.

SOLARIUM

The Molenkoning Solarium is dedicated to improving the well-being of a horse, focusing on the development of its physical, emotional, and physiological state.

Horse Solarium

Why use a Molenkoning Solarium?

  • Promotion offull relaxation and recovery after training
  • Faster drying process which reduces the falling ill
  • Improves elasticity of the muscles. It is highly recommended as a “warm up” before training or a competition.
  • Better physical and psychological condition
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Healthy, shiny coat
  • Improved skin condition
  • Less muscular pain in the saddle area
  • Relief from sore or tender backs
  • Increased blood and oxygen supply

Infrared lights are proven to improve circulation, helping the rapid absorption of sugar by the muscles and the quick disposal of lactic acid; as a result the performance of the horse is vastly improved.

Our solariums feature 15 or 20 infrared lamps. Each lighting segment is furnished with 5 lamps and a ventilator. The infra-red lamps are not damaged by the damp environment generated from the horse, due to the open construction of the system. Fresh air is drawn through the back of the solarium and is passed through the lamp conduits thus creating a dual function; cooling the lamps whilst drying the horse quickly.

GENERAL BENEFITS

  • General Benefits
  • Excellent for warming up before riding and cooling down afterwards
  • Exercise multiple horses at the same time.
  • Free moving exercise (no lunging on lounge line).
  • Improves the equine condition and stamina.
  • Rehabilitation of injured horses.

OBSERVABLE BENEFITS

  • Character: focused tempo training, whereby horses sometimes are pushed to their limits.
  • Quality of the legs: short and intense stimulation (interval training) improves the bone tissue.
  • Coordination: varying movements by applying different speeds.
  • Suppleness: less stiffness.
  • Reflexes: great improvement thus considerably less risk of injury.

LONG TERM BENEFITS

  • Fewer health problems.
  • Significantly fewer leg and hoof problems.
  • Better muscle development, especially the back muscles.
  • Improved suppleness and reflexes.
  • Significantly fewer injuries.
  • Less risk of ataxic defects (free walk).
  • 60% less risk of osteochondrosis dissecans.
  • Less risk of arthritis.
  • Reduced risk of Colic.

MOLENKONING HORSEPOWER PLATE

THE ORIGINAL VIBRATING PLATE FOR HORSES

Explored and developed widely as a beneficial addition to human exercising and health regimes, the transition of whole-body vibrations into the equestrian industry is reasonable new but has already been proven to assist with rehabilitation and the wellbeing of horses.

Power plate horse platform

How does it work?

Typically running between 15Hz to 60Hz and created by motors underneath the platform the vibrations flow through the feet to reach the whole body, triggering a natural reaction within the muscles, which involuntarily contract and relax 30 to 50 times per second, depending on the frequency the machine is set at. Due to this stretch-reflex contraction, more muscle fibres are used than in a conscious, voluntary movement. The repetitive action tires out the muscle and as it recovers it strengthens to withstand the increased effort. WBV stimulates blood circulation through the entire body. The increased blood flow improves oxygenation of the tissues. This helps with the removal of toxins and metabolic waste thus enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself.

What is it?

Whole Body Vibrations (WBV) can also be referred to as vibration training, vibration therapy, biomechanical stimulation (BMS) or biomechanical oscillation (BMO), and is a training method employing low amplitude, low-frequency mechanical stimulation to exercise musculoskeletal structures for the improvement of muscle strength, power, and flexibility.
