How the ArcEquine microcurrent device helps to heal injuries in horses
The ArcEquine (£449.00 for the complete kit) is an easy-to-use microcurrent device designed for use on equines, providing therapeutic treatment that promotes tissue repair at a cellular level, and helps to manage the pain associated with tissue damage. Here we take a look at some of the most common questions that get asked about the ArcEquine device and go into more depth about how it works.
Why are microcurrents important for the healthy function of cells?
In healthy tissue, cells use naturally occurring currents to produce ATP and regulate normal metabolic activity. When there is damage within the tissue (an injury), the cells require more ATP to enable the healing process to take place. The rate in which the body can produce ATP is thought to be a major contributory factor to the time the body takes to heal and repair.
How does the ArcEquine device promote healing and pain management?
The ArcEquine microcurrent device supports the currents seen in all healthy cells, kick-starting effective healing in damaged tissue and helping to ensure the horse is comfortable while that healing takes place. Microcurrent devices have been proven to be highly effective in encouraging and accelerating tissue repair, increasing the production of ATP by up to 500%.
The ArcEquine microcurrent device is a totally drug-free and non-invasive therapy to promote healing and, what’s more, the device doesn’t need to be sited right next to the injury to work. Microcurrent therapy is systemic which means the electrical currents travel to wherever they are needed in the horse’s body, so the device should be placed on a different leg each time it is used, ideal for use when an injury site is swollen and uncomfortable.
Is it easy to learn how to use an ArcEquine microcurrent device?
ArcEquine have designed their product, which is the world’s smallest wide-spectrum microcurrent device, especially for use in equine rehabilitation and therapy and to be as easy to use as possible. The ArcEquine device comes programmed with a recommended 6-week treatment protocol calibrated for tissue repair which should be used for a minimum of 3 hours a day, every day. The ArcEquine attaches to a horse’s leg with a padded strap, and the company recommends switching it from one leg to another every time you use it. The device is simple to operate, with pre-programmed electrical sequences to run through in the course of a healing schedule, and it requires no specialist training or clinical knowledge to operate. It is battery operated so you can carry on with other yard chores knowing that the ArcEquine device is hard at work helping your horse heal and reducing any pain at the same time.
